Mosquito 'Tornado' Horrifies Drivers In The Middle Of The Road

Even though the mosquito tornado poses no threat to humans, the idea of coming face-to-face with a mosquito tornado isn’t pleasant.

Yesterday, some drivers on Route 74 in Argentina were horrified when they came across a tornado on the road. However, it turned out the tornado is just a lot of mosquitoes swarmed together.

The video of the bizarre event was captured by a motorist who was driving on Route 74 between General Madariaga and Pinamar and it has quickly gone rival on Twitter. It would seem a bit scary at the first, but as they approached the “tornado”, they then realized that it was all just mosquitoes. 

“It’s getting bigger and bigger, I’ve never seen anything like this in my life,” said the person filming, according to local media reports.

Mosquito Tornado
Mosquito 'tornados' are not dangerous to humans, but they might be very unpleasant on your faces.

This bizarre event occurred after consistent heavy rains in the Buenos Aires region of Argentina, which led to an explosion of mosquitoes. 

Juan Jose Garcia, a researcher at the Centre for Parasitological and Vector Studies, told the media that “heavy rains caused flooding resulting in large pools of stagnant water where female mosquitoes lay their eggs”.

Mr. Garcia further said that even though mosquito tornados look dangerous, it actually poses little to no threat to humans. However, he suggested that they could have negative impacts on farming activities. He added that the mosquito ‘tornado’ should stop after 15 days as the mosquitoes will most likely die after that amount of time.
