Get ready to hear that eerie noise that can only come from a cicada.

Experts say a massive amount of the noisy bugs are making their way to the skies after 17 years underground.

They believe as many as one and half million cicadas may emerge in parts of Virginia, West Virginia, and North Carolina.
