Mole Cricket

what is this bug?
Hi there,
This guy (or one of his/her friends) have been scurrying around our back porch in Hattiesburg, Mississippi ever since Hurricane Katrina came through. I would guess the guy is two and a half to three inches long, somewhat fast on his feet and rather creepy. Any ideas? Great site by the way!

Hi Wesley,
This is a Mole Cricket, and though they live underground, some species can fly quite well.
