WATCH: ‘Mosquito Tornadoes’ In Russia Are Literally Blocking Out The Sun


Locals in Kamchatka, Russia say that this is a regular, yearly occurrence in the region, however, this past weekend, millions of mosquitos invaded the east coast of the Kamchatka Peninsula and created what looked like "mosquito tornados"...and they were terrifying.

Even though the locals say that they are used to it, based on the videos, it was a horrifying scene. What seemed like infinite numbers of mosquitos swarmed off of the coast of the Bering Sea and formed large swirling pillars. Resembling something straight out of the bible, the disturbing amount of bugs literally blocked out the sunlight.

Entomologist, Lyudmila Lobkova from the Kronoki Reserve offered this explanation, "These are male mosquitoes swarming around one of several females in order to mate, there is nothing wrong about this phenomenon." Climate change has also been considered a cause in the rising temperatures, which are thought to cause the mosquito populations to live longer.
