Burning Man exodus begins after flooding left 1000’s stranded

Muddy roads that left tens of 1000’s of partygoers stranded for days at a competition had dried up sufficient this afternoon to permit for a mass exodus from the Nevada desert.

A late-summer storm turned the annual Burning Man competition right into a mud pit over the weekend, after greater than half an inch of rain drenched the grounds.

The occasion historically culminates within the torching of a big wood man and temple construction throughout the closing two nights, however the fires have been postponed as authorities labored to reopen exit routes by the top of the Labour Day weekend.
