PHOTOS: Cicadas Hatching Unexpectedly in DC Area
May 18, 2017

D.C.-area residents are reporting an unexpected influx of cicadas. The emergence of the cicadas -- which are large and noisy but harmless to humans -- have surprised experts as
they've hatched earlier than their usual late-May time and before their 13- or 17-year cycles, according to the AP. Scientists are working now to determine what brood the bugs belong to and why they are hatching sooner.
