Going outside today in Cleveland means getting bombarded by swarming midges. That's right, the tiny, flying mosquito-looking insects are back in Northeast Ohio, as they are wont to do every June, and are as irritating as ever.

As Cleveland 19 meteorologist Jason Nicholas tweeted below, hordes of the pesky things were actually caught on weather radar last night. Scary stuff.
While the midges aren't here to suck human blood, and are not harmful, walking through a swarm of them can mean getting them in your hair and mouth. Luckily, these midge infestations, coming to us from the banks of Lake Erie, normally only last about 10 days, the bugs' lifespan.

We’re keeping you informed…
...and it’s what we love to do. From local politics and culture to national news that hits close to home, Scene Magazine has been keeping Cleveland informed for years.

It’s never been more important to support local news sources, especially as we all deal with the ramifications of the coronavirus pandemic. Almost everything Scene is about -- our stories, our events, our advertisers -- comes down to getting together.

A free press means accountability and a well-informed public, and we want to keep our unique and independent reporting available for many, many years to come.

If quality journalism is important to you, please consider a donation to Scene. Every reader contribution is valuable and so appreciated, and goes directly to support our coverage of critical issues and neighborhood culture. Thank you.
