Zombies Invade Montana On October 28th

In 2017 bees carrying a zombie virus swarmed north out of Texas causing a large zombie invasion across the United States. The virus is believed to have originated in South America and was brought to the US on a cruise ship out of Texas.

While the zombie virus was originally carried by bees the virus was quickly acquired by mosquitos and is now being spread throughout the United States by swarms of mosquitos. USA Today reported in May that Lake Worth, Florida was the first city to be affected this year with the Lake Worth Alert System sending out the following warning:



The very wet spring in Montana has caused the mosquito spread zombie virus to explode. 

ANYONE bitten by a mosquito this year is at extreme risk of being infected with the Zombie Virus!

The Center for Zombie Control (CZC) in Atlanta has issued a warning for all of Montana but warns that Broadwater County Montana is at extreme risk for the zombie virus. The CZC warns that it takes months for the virus to gestate and they expect those infected to start showing symptoms and begin morphing into full zombies in the month of October with the epicenter of the infection being in Townsend, Mt.

The CZC warns that it is imperative that you must avoid contact with anyone that has morphed into a zombie. Be vigilant and on the lookout for any signs of the outbreak.

Will YOU survive the 2018 Zombie Epidemic?
