In South Dakota, we have weather alerts, civil defense alerts, and news alerts. If you live in Egypt, you have locust alerts.

A swarm of locusts invaded Egypt threatening crops across the country, and it has strange timing. The locusts arrived just ahead of the Passover holiday which recounts the biblical story of the Jewish exodus from Egypt. According to the Bible, a plague of locusts was one of 10 plagues God imposed on Egyptians for enslaving the Moses' people.

It was also the day after the History Channel aired the record rating premier of 'The Bible' which featured the hardened Pharaoh dealing with plagues, one of which was locusts.

It is also worth mentioning the strange series of events that have been taking place on the set of the filming 'The Bible' according to producers and creators of the series.

A reach? Maybe. It could, however, have the internet buzzing with theories. Maybe not buzzing as loudly as the locusts...

What do you think?
