A swarm of locusts heading from Texas to Oklahoma was so large that it was detected on Doppler RADAR.
In the Bible book of Exodus, chapter 10, Egypt is struck by a plague of locusts as Moses demands that the Pharaoh let his people go! What did Oklahoma do?
According to National Geographic, locusts, which are normally more solitary insects, will band together into a ravenous group when conditions are lush. This group will move over the land, devouring everything it can. Swarms can be up to 460 square miles (1,200 square kilometers), containing 40 to 80 million locusts in less than half a square mile (one square kilometer).
Here is video of a swarm in progress.
This is worse than the rain of spider we reported a while back! At least they weren’t destructive.
Nature is always weirder and more powerful than we imagine.
