Locust a form of  grasshopper

2 out of 10 plagues and its not even September


       The only  answer is  an emphatic yes. However  not only  for the reasons  you're  probably named.  Surprisingly  in 2020 we not only crossed  off pestilence but also locust. I'm not religious  however  two out of 10 o c the plagues  and its not even  september.

     About two months ago  this article  from  north popped up on my news feed.  This article  that I will link in sources basically the swarms affected most  of Eastern Africa and parts of southwest  Asia. Kenya had  officials saying  the swarms where the worst seen in nearly seven years.  Eye  witnesses  reported  one swarm measuring  roughly 25 miles  wide by 37 miles  long.   

      I did  the  math  that is roughly  925 square  miles.  To put that number  in perspective  the city  of Detroit  is 139 square miles.  I'm not making  light of the  pandemic  or saying that  this is at all the  same  severity. My thoughts  go  out to anyone  that has lost someone during  this  crisis. I just wanted  to  bring some  attention to another  headline  that  probably didn't even  register  in 2020. Because  any swarm that is  over 6.5 times  larger  than the city of Detroit is  worth bringing some more attention to.
