Kicker: Zombie activity

MARY REICHARD, HOST: The lights went out in Lake Worth, Florida Sunday night.

A routine power outage— not terribly unusual.

But the text message blasted out to 7,000 residents was rather odd. It stated the blackout was “due to extreme zombie activity.”

AUDIO: Killing zombies

Now, that was obviously a bogus alert. City officials say they are investigating.

But they couldn’t resist a bit of tongue-in-cheek of their own. They posted to Facebook: “Lake Worth does not have any zombie activity currently.”
