The annual Burning Man festival at Black Rock Desert in Nevada plunged into chaos this year as determined rainstorms changed the desert gathering into a sloppy wreck, leaving 70000 people abandoned.
For a really long time, extreme tempests have walloped the typically dry Black Rock Desert, flooding the region with determined deluges. The storm transformed the dusty scene into a mess that stopped activities and delivered streets obstructed. Coordinators banished all vehicular admittance to the improvised city and asked members to conserve resources.
With no chance for vehicles to navigate the thick, dirt like mud, participants have been compelled to clear the region by foot, walking five miles through heavy storm and lower leg profound slop to sit tight for transportation. A few wore plastic packs as off the cuff rainboots while others went shoeless on the tricky walk.
Transport transports are moving a portion of the assessed 70,000 individuals from the closest town of Gerlach to Reno in the midst of the continuous access difficulties. In the mean time, resolve stays peppy inside the abandoned makeshift camp as members disseminate supplies and accept the disturbance
Alarming pictures and recordings are surfacing across Social Media showing the outrageous circumstances looked by participants of Burning Man 2023 .

The accompanying video gives an drone perspective on the size of the flooding, with sections of land of playa gobbled up by precipitation and key streets looking like sloppy streams instead of pathways. Anything over a couple of feet off the ground sits encompassed by sloppy water.
