CLEVELAND – Massive amounts of dragonflies were spotted over Ohio on Tuesday.

Viewers of PIX11 sister station WJW reported seeing thousands of dragonflies in Lakewood, Lorain, Shelby, Vermilion and Willoughby.

The National Weather Service Cleveland posted an image of the radar from Ohio, Indiana and Pennsylvania, showing the insect invasion.

"While we are not biological experts, we have determined (through input from out followers) that it's most likely dragonflies mixed with other insects/birds," the NWS said on Twitter.
