Thousands of Burning Man attendees are stranded after bad weather halted the annual festival.
Burning Man kicked off this year on August 27 in Nevada's Black Rock Desert but slid into a soggy end to the weeklong event. Heavy rain settled about the festival's temporary city, Black Rock City, transforming the desert landscape into a mud pit.
Organizers told attendees to shelter in place as entering and exiting the festival was halted on Friday.
By Sunday, little had changed. Organizers announced that the entering and exiting Burning Man was "halted until further notice."
"If you are in BRC, conserve food and water, and shelter in a warm space. More updates to come," a statement on X read.
