Georgia’s Union County is begging people to stop calling 911 about the loud noises cicadas make. Union County Fire/Rescue & EMA wrote on Facebook, “Union County E911 is receiving multiple 911 calls for ‘alarms’ in the neighborhood. More than likely these ‘alarms’ are not alarms at all but a bug, Brood X.” The last time Brood X, a specific group of cicadas, made an appearance was in 2004, and they’re back as they only reappear
every 17 years. The bugs typically come out once the soil reaches 64 degrees.
