Or anywhere else. Still thinking about the Bahamas last year.
Not Locusts, but parts of the US get a big cicda brood this year

Nice job Jim, my sarcasm wasn't plain enough for you. And yes I'm sarcastic about NOAA and its hurricane predictions. They do great work tracking and forecasting storms but their preseason predictions are as accurate as your NFL predictions.
