Brood cicada hatch

Has anyone been able to experience the brood cicada hatch that was/is supposed to happen this year? I'm curious to know if it's as epic and biblical as I've heard it previously described.

Mark, I don't know jack about the little buggars but, I was in Cinci as my wife grandmother turned 100 a couple weeks ago most were gone but trees were still wrapped in plastic sheeting.

I'm not sure if it's the same cicadas but this happens about ever seven to fourteen years... depending on species and location. You haven't seen anything biblical until you get to Australia. Talk about cicadas!

Here in Ontario you'll get them annually but the big brood hatch about every fourteen years. They don'thave mouths so they won't be eating crops etc, like Locusts. IT will just get noisier. Here it usually happens in late July - mid August. Those buzz saws you hear on a hot afternoon.

You'll just notice more cases on the tree trunks than usual...and nothing more.
No big deal really.

Cicadas

On the North Shore of MA we hear them every 17 years. They occur at different times in every location. We should be about due up here in the next 2 or 3 years.
Always found them a currious occurence.

The reason for my question...

I've been informed that the hatch was in epic proportions out in Ohio a short while ago. I just wondered if anyone else had experienced it in other parts of the country.

Thanks for the responses.
