The area’s cicada (sih-KAY’-duh) brood emerges once every 17 years.

The Post-Standard says the eastern U.S. is one of three places in the world with periodical cicadas. The others are the Pacific Ocean island of Fiji, where cicadas emerge every eight years; and northern India, where they emerge every four years.

A student from Shizuoka University in Japan, Hiroki Hayashi, calls the scene “wonderful and exciting.”
