"Mary Muthoni runs through her farm in Mathyakani, in southeast Kenya, shaking a bottle filled with pebbles at the clouds of locusts that swarmed into her village the night before. That morning, the whole community rose early to try chasing off the insects, banging on pots and pans, blowing whistles and honking motorcycle horns.

“We first woke up and prayed. We prayed that the Lord shut the mouths of the locusts,” Muthoni said.
It’s a scene that’s playing out across East Africa as swarms of desert locusts spread through the region, destroying crops and pastures at a voracious pace. The United Nations has warned of an unprecedented threat to food security in a part of the world where millions already face hunger. And the situation will probably get worse before it gets better.

Experts say the outbreak—the worst in recent memory—is caused by an increased number of cyclones. If the weather trends continue, there may be more to come.

“There is a link between climate change and the unprecedented locust crisis plaguing Ethiopia and East Africa,” UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres said. “Warmer seas mean more cyclones generating the perfect breeding ground for locusts. Today the swarms are as big as major cities and it is getting worse by the day.”"
