People trapped at US festival begin to leave after roads reopen

Music festival organizers Burning Man in the Nevada desert, in the United States, announced that the roads full of mud, which kept more than 72 thousand people isolated, were reopened.

Thus, the first cars began to leave Burning Man this Monday morning (4). Drivers have to face an 8 km dirt road until they reach the nearest highway.

More than 70,000 people were told to stock up on water, food and fuel because of the rains, which filled the desert with mud and blocked the tracks.

Burning Man takes place in the Black Rock City, built every year just for the festival, in the Nevada desert.

The city has sanitary, security and emergency infrastructure, but people spend days camping.

The idea is not only to enjoy the shows, but to make art and exchange items with people from other camps.

The region received in three days the amount of rain equivalent to what would normally occur in three months.
