Billions Of Cicadas Will Emerge This Year In Several States

They're here, and WCPO wants your photos!

The Brood X cicadas have sat dormant underground for the last 17 years, waiting for the Midwestern summer weather to call them to the surface.

As more and more neighborhoods report cicada-sightings, WCPO is compiling a season-long photo gallery of the natural phenomenon.

Submit your cicada photos using the "Submit your photo" form in the box below.

Note: Photo submissions will not appear in the gallery immediately, so check back soon after submitting your cicada pictures!
