Locust swarms threatening Madagascar

Posted: Updated:

A massive plague is affecting the island of Madagascar.

Billions of locusts are swarming the country and they're threatening Madagascar’s crops.

More than 13-million people are in danger of starvation and the government there is desperately seeking $41-million to deal with the swarms.

Just one swarm can eat up to 100,000 tons of crops every day and each swarm has millions of locusts.
