Mayflies invade Northeast Ohio Monday morning

CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - If you live in the Cleveland area, you may have woken up to a scene like the one below.

A cold front pushed over Lake Erie overnight and changed the wind direction.

That allowed strong north/northwest winds to bring the swarm of mayflies onto shore.

They are a sign of a healthy lake, but could make the start of your work-week a little stinky.
