After tunneling themselves out from their underground home, the nymphs must find a suitable location for their final molt to the adult cicada.
Below you can see an adult cicada and a casing.
They started to "sing", small in number, but as more emerged the music volume increased. Hopefully you can get an idea of the sound from this video.
It's been very fascinating to watch and hear. Some people find the sounds eery, alien, unsettling, and are looking forward to the "noise" ending. I think I'll be sorry to hear it end.
