Dash cam footage captured a truck driving into what appears to be a sandstorm, but was actually a massive swarm of millions of locusts. The footage comes from the south Russian region of Dagestan, where locusts swarms have infected 266,874 acres of land, according to the regional Ministry of Agriculture. The problem isn't only in Dagestan. Every year, locust swarms from North Africa or Asia appear in the south feeding on crops, with swarms containing up to 200 million of the insect. Not long after this video was record, officials in Dagestan declared a state of emergency and launched air and land based chemicals on the pesky locusts.
