Florida city sends out fake ‘zombie’ alert during power outage

The city of Lake Worth, Fla., sent out a false “zombie alert” to residents during a power outage.

The Palm Beach Post reports that the message was sent around 1:45 a.m. on Sunday and read “zombie alert for Lake Worth and Terminus.”

Terminus is a city in the popular zombie television show “The Walking Dead.”

{mosads}“There are now far less than seven-thousand-three-hundred-eighty customers involved due to extreme zombie activity,” the alert read.

The city’s public information officer said in a statement that they’re looking into how zombies were mentioned in the report.

“I want to reiterate that Lake Worth does not have any zombie activity currently and apologize for the system message,” Ben Kerr said.

Power was out for 27 minutes for about 7,880 customers, Kerr said.
