Read The ‘Zombie Alert’ Warning Sent To Florida Residents

Lake Worth residents in Florida received what you might kindly label an odd alert following a power outage. Though they were made aware of the power outage residents also received a far more alarming notice: Zombies.

“Power outage and zombie alert for Lake Worth and Terminus,” read the alert, potentially referencing “The Walking Dead.”

“There are now than seven thousand three hundred and eighty customers involved due to extreme zombie activity. Restoration time is uncertain.”

Lake Worth spokesman Ben Kerr told the Palm Beach Post that an investigation is under way, but that “no one was fired for it.” The city also determined that no former or current employees edited the message to include the false warning about the zombie invasion.

The alert was sent at 1:45 a.m. As more alerts and notifications are being sent to users in our smartphone era, more mishaps like these occur. Earlier this year Hawaii residents were sent an imminent ballistic missile warning in error. In addition, this February Palm Beach County residents also received a tsunami weather alert originally intended as a test not to be sent out.

We are looking into reports that the system mentioned zombies,” Kerr wrote on Lake Worth Live, a community Facebook page. “I want to reiterate that Lake Worth does not have any zombie activity currently and apologize for the system message.”
