More than 60,000 Burning Man participants are stuck in a mega traffic jam.
For the past few days, people have had to live in the Nevada desert – it was impossible to get out of it because of the past rains.
According to media reports, the organizers have finally opened an exit as wide as ten lanes. True, this did not help much: the cars that are trying to get out of the desert got stuck in a multi-kilometer traffic jam, more like frames from a disaster movie.

Recall that powerful downpours swept through the empty Black Rock on September 1 and 2. In just a couple of days, the norm of precipitation for two to three months fell there. As a result, the roads were washed out, and tens of thousands of Burning Man visitors were trapped in mud, they had to save food and water.
