Zombie attack emergency alert in Montana: ‘Dead bodies rising from the grave’

Zombie attack emergency alert in Montana:  ‘Dead bodies rising from the grave’

News of a zombie attack and zombie apocalypse was broadcast by the Emergency Alert System of Great Falls on Monday. The emergency alert was issued for several counties in Montana and warned that “dead bodies are rising from their graves,” reports Politico on Feb. 11, 2013.

The emergency alert featured a scrolling warning with a voice-over claiming that dead bodies were rising from the grave and attacking the living. It also urged people to use caution.

“Do not attempt to approach or apprehend these bodies as they are extremely dangerous.”

When Montana’s regular television programming was interrupted with the news of the zombie attack and zombie apocalypse, a few confused television viewers called the Great Falls Police Department.

Since the police department had not received any emergency calls or reports about any dead bodies having risen from the graves and causing public disturbances, the police did not respond the same way as some scared television viewers did.

Shortly after the emergency announcement of the zombie attack, the Montana Television Network clarified that the emergency was not issued by the television station or any emergency officials but that hackers had broken into the Emergency Alert System of Great Falls affiliate KRTV and its CW station and issued the zombie attack warning.

“The emergency alert was issued during afternoon programming on KRTV, a CBS affiliate. On KRTV’s website and Facebook page, the station says the hacking came from an outside source and station officials are working to find out how this happened.”

KRTV Montana’s "Zombie Attack" emergency alert system message can be viewed on YouTube.

But beware, -- the annoying system alert tone makes one wish that a zombie would indeed rise up from the dead and stop the sound.


what would you do?
