Now LOCUST swarm heads towards Brazil as the country struggles to cope with spiralling coronavirus infections

A swarm of locusts is threatening to invade Brazil as the country also battles one of the world's worst coronavirus outbreaks.

The swarm - thought to contain 40million insects - formed in Paraguay last month and has been eating its way through Argentina since May 21, damaging crops of cane, oats, wheat and corn.

But nine days ago it made a turn to the east, and is now heading towards the border with Brazil and Uruguay.

It also comes after two other locust swarms - in India and eastern Africa - also devastated crops in those countries.

Two Brazilian states - Rio Grande do Sul and Santa Catarina - have been put on alert for the arrival of the insects, which can move up to 93 miles in a day.

Experts say the arrival of cold weather and rain in recent days has slowed its progress, making the insects lethargic.

End Times famines & all of that. Locusts are tearing up Asia & East Africa currently. Now this one is springing up in South America. Watch food prices soar worldwide.

PM me if you wish to be added/removed.

We were warned in Matthew 24 & Luke 21.

Maranatha!

They’ll be up here just in time for the fall harvest. THEN, watch world food prices soar.

Glad I have a year’s supply of food, TP, paper towels, meds etc.

I believe we called them ‘grasshoppers’ in rural Kansas. Not at alarm levels yet, but we seem to have an abundance of them here in Batangas, too -— not at biblical numbers (yet?) though

Sounds almost ... Biblical. (this happening in diverse places around the world.

I tried explaining to someone (elsewhere) that "divers" is simply how the KJV was showing "diverse".

Of course the 4 Horsemen have not started their ride. Yet.

We already have people who hate us aslocusts in America thanks to the illegal immigration allowed and promoted by both parties for decades.

Brazil??? I thought that kind of thing only happened in the Middle East or Africa, not on this side of the globe. That's just too weird!

I wonder if that swarm will reach the US?
