Path of Totality

This graphic shows the path of totality for the April 8, 2024, solar eclipse. An estimated 32 million people reside along this path, with millions more expected to pour into the area to view the apocalyptic event. This is sure to cause severe traffic congestion and increased road hazards to drivers and their occupants, as well as pedestrians. The congestion can also lead to a high number of cell phones in any single geographic area, which can overwhelm cellular infrastructure and disrupt communication.
