Video: Apocalyptic Locust Swarm Stops Traffic As Sky Turns Black

Apocalyptic locust swarm stops traffic as sky turns black in terrifying footage

A swarm of locusts was filmed bringing cars to a standstill in Bahrain. The plague of bugs has been destroying crops across Africa and the Middle East and since crossed the border in China

This horrifying video shows the sky turning black as a swarm of locusts descends on Bahrain today.
In the clip, filmed by stunned witnesses cowering in their car, a dark cloud of flying insects swarms above a road in the normally-sunny Middle Eastern island nation.
As if sharing a single mind, thousands of bugs are all heading in the same direction – to gorge on any plants in their path.
The apocalyptic scene results in people stopping their cars, either too scared to drive with such poor visibility or to marvel at the unsettling spectacle.

Dropping from the sky, one of the engorged bugs lands on the driver’s windscreen and looks to be several inches long.
A person in the car can be heard making what sounds like noises of disgust.
Pakistan earlier declared a national emergency shortly after this footage showed a plague of locusts blocking out the Sun in the nation. 

China has insisted it is not scared of the approaching plague of insects as the first ones were filmed landing inside its border.
The nation has deployed an army of 100,000 ducks to deal with the problem using nothing but their bills and a voracious appetite. 
Runner ducks – which walk upright like penguins – can be trained to feed on locusts and charge towards their prey at the command of a whistle, according to the BBC.
