'Think Tank' Concludes US Shores are Vulnerable.

ZWN Field report: Roy A. Miller
Posted July 15, 2007
At the Convention of Necro-Mortosis Studies in New York City yesterday, the U.S. Government were challenged to effect better hurricane disaster preparation.
Dr. Archman DeMonde from the 'Necro-Mortosis Strategic Planning Team,' a think tank funded by the United Nations urged the U.S. and other governments to increase their disaster preparedness. Dr. DeMonde warned that due to the infestations in the Caribbean Islands, and the recent level 'A' outbreaks on Cuba, the coastal areas in the Gulf of Mexico are in a "dire predicament". Recently discovered "floaters" (Necro-Mortosis infected corpse's) have remained reanimated in the water for days. Hurricanes can push these floaters into coastal regions, which could spread the Necro-Mortosis virus into the gulf regions.
Dr. DeMonde did say that the chances are unlikely of a floater making it to a coastal region during a hurricane, due to the damage it would would inevitably sustain due to the rough waters, debris and marine life. But if one did survive it could spell disaster to an already damaged area. If a floater did reach land during a hurricane it could be trapped in floating debris from the hurricane or even trapped in flood water. This could pose a very real hazard to hurricane victims, rescue workers and clean-up crews negotiating these flooded areas. Dr. DeMonde stressed "We only need to think of New Orleans after hurricane Katrinia. If a floater had been there it would have taken days for the U.S. Government to even notice. By the time it was reported, contained and eventually neutralized, hundreds could have been infected. And New Orleans would have been lost to the Necro-Mortosis virus."
Dr. DeMonde suggests that governments need to have quick reaction teams on stand by for all hurricane prone areas. Teams specialized to detect and contain any infestation. The teams should be well armed, self contained and prepared to enter hurricane damaged areas for days at a time with no back up or relief. The teams main job would be surveying the area and determining the level and intensity of any Necro-Mortosis outbreak. Additionally, these teams would aid and assist with clean up and in turn educate clean up workers on post infestation protective measures.
At the end of Dr.
DeMonde's speech he urged all governments in the gulf region to take
this plan of action. At this time no official comments has been offered
by the the United Nations members.
