Chaos at Burning Man festival as heavy rain sparks mass exodus

Many attendees of a nine-day music and culture festival in Nevada were in a hurry to leave on Monday, causing significant traffic jams. A viral drone video captured long queues of vehicles leaving the Burning Man festival, causing quite a stir on social media. The unusually heavy rain, a rare occurrence in the festival’s 30-year history, prompted organizers to advise festival-goers to stay put. Finally, on Monday, they were given the green light to depart, resulting in thousands of people queuing in the desert to go home.

Weather hits Burning Man festival

Incessant rains have turned the Nevada desert into a mud puddle, even as thousands of revelers continued to party on Sunday. Due to adverse weather conditions, the authorities have urged everyone to stay put. The iconic tradition of burning an effigy of the festival had to be postponed till Monday evening.

Martina Sova, a dancer participating in the festival, expressed her surprise at how severe the weather had become. In an interview with the BBC, he revealed that he was initially informed that he could not leave until Tuesday, but exceptions were made for those who had compelling reasons to depart.

Burning Man, an annual event held in the Nevada desert, attracts people who come to dance, create art, and be part of a unique community that only exists temporarily. What started as a small gathering on a San Francisco beach in 1986 has grown to attract celebrities and social media influencers.
