Casey Donovan is trapped at Burning Man after one person dies at a flooded festival, leaving 73,000 partygoers with hypothermia

Date:

Casey Donovan is trapped in Burning Man due to a flood situation that has left thousands in a national emergency.

Festival organizers have encouraged revelers to conserve food and water amid the unexpected weather conditions.

Casey shared a photo of a rainbow over a soggy campsite at the famed festival on Sunday on Instagram.

“Here’s a fantastic shot of a full rainbow putting on a show for a smile in a not-so-ideal situation!” she wrote.

“I found some WiFi… There’s been rain in the playa (ground) here at Burning Man. The good thing is we are safe, we have food and a ‘dry’ shelter. It’s very humid here and more rain is predicted to fall in the coming days…fingers and toes crossed for some sunshine to brighten things up.

“But for now, ChoooookAsssssses and I will contact you if I find more Wi-Fi.”

At Burning Man in Nevada, one person died during a weekend of rain and mud.

The northern Nevada Pershing County Sheriff’s Office said the death occurred “during this downpour,” but gave few other details about what caused it, or the person’s identity.

“As this death is still under investigation, no further information is available at this time,” the sheriff’s office said in a statement Saturday night.

Tens of thousands of revelers attending the event in the Nevada desert were told on Saturday to stay put and conserve food and water after a massive rainstorm turned the venue into a quagmire.

The hedonistic event’s final weekend came to a halt on Friday night as frigid, muddy conditions took over, but it even led to celebrities like Chris Rock attempting to escape the deluge.

“Don’t travel to Black Rock City!” Burning Man organizers tweeted, referring to the desert area where the alternative festival takes place

“Entrance to the city is closed for the rest of the event and you will be turned around,” the organizers said in a statement on social media.

“Rain from the past 24 hours has created a situation that required a complete halt of vehicular movement on the playa,” they explained.

Thousands of Burning Man visitors trudged through sloppy mud on Saturday — many barefoot or with plastic bags on their feet — as flooding storms swept across the Nevada desert.

About six inches of rain are believed to have fallen on Friday at the festival site, about 110 miles north of Reno, according to the National Weather Service in Reno.

An additional four inches of rain is expected from late Saturday through Sunday and conditions are not expected to improve enough for vehicles to enter the playa,” the U.S. Bureau of Land Management said.

Revelers suffer from hypothermia after unprecedented storms washed away the festival.

Organizers urged festival-goers already on site to “save food, water and fuel and take shelter in a warm, safe space.”

They said the rain was unlikely to stop until Sunday night. The festival was supposed to end on Monday.

Due to the rain, the ‘playa’, the huge open-air promenade where the event takes place, had become impassable.

Those not trapped on site tried not to let the storms dampen their spirits, but local bars full of festival-goers still hoped to make the best of a bad situation.

Well over 100,000 people are believed to have made their way to the Nevada wasteland this year, making it one of the most-attended events in Burning Man history, and the event is consistently one of the most-attended for festival-goers each summer .

But after the skies opened Thursday, violent storms are believed to have brought the most rainfall the event has seen since its inception in 1986.

Many attendees took to social media to offer a glimpse into the devastated event, with one sharing a somber video of the art installations drenched.
