Overwhelmed Reporter Terrorized by Cicada Invasion

Subscribe to TheFW on

Katya Leick, crack reporter for KSNT, in Tokepa, Kan., has met her match.

While working on a story about Fort Riley, Leick was disturbed by some rather pesky cicadas.

After the traditional 17-year break, the creatures re-emerged, wreaking havoc on Leick, who lost her cool while trying to do a standup for her story.

The cicadas, which only live about two months, are not considered dangerous. Annoying? Well, that’s a whole other matter altogether.

We think it may take Leick 17 years to get over the trauma of what she just experienced.
