Cicadas Emerging From 13-Year Slumber in Southern U.S.

Cicadas are emerging in the Southern U.S. after a 13-year slumber. USA Today reports that the enormous brood of cicadas will cover 16 states. The cicadas will be around for about a month and then they will go into another slumber until 2024. The cicadas are harmless but they can be numerous - as many as a million per acre according to Gene Kritsky, editor of the journal American Entomologist. You can hear the cicadas in the second video.
