A reporter in Kansas named Katya Leick was trying to do a segment at a military base recently. But she couldn’t get more than two words out, because a bunch of cicadas were flying all around her. (Her last name is pronounced “Like”.)
They’re the bugs that live underground, and only hatch once every 17 years. And she had to do take after take, because she kept stopping to swat them away. Then she freaked out when one of them landed on her face.
