Fast-moving pillars with millions of the insects rampaged on the the peninsula of Kamchatka, far-eastern Russia.
“I drove through the cloud of these mosquitoes for several hundred metres,” said Alexei, from Ust-Kamchatsk.
“It wasn’t a pleasant experience as I could hardly see the road.
“I didn’t dare open my windows.
“Giant pillars of mosquitoes were visible everywhere I looked.
“I could see some of them breaking apart only to get back together into a new tornado.”
