René Dupree is ZWN's embedded foreign correspondent covering the outbreak and its affects on the African nations. Sadly last month ZWN's African crew lost their young and gifted photographer Etienne Vignes to the undead plague. René returns this week to his home of Miami.

Returning from assignment in the heart of the African continent as the international community continues its efforts to contain the undead menace, I arrive in the city of Miami only to be informed that that very menace has beached the shores of the place I hold most dear.

Home.

As the charter flight makes one final approach to the tarmac of Miami International Airport, one cannot help but acknowledge the empty hollows of the cabins interior. In a country that has only been minimally touched by the taint of the undead plague, it becomes apparent that recent events have detracted many individuals from entering what was once thought to be a Necro-Mortosis free nation.

The Boeing 747 –with a maximum capacity of 416 persons- currently has less than fifty travelers, excluding airline staff. The majority of these individuals are medical or military personnel for various global governmental organizations here to receive training and the first hand skills necessary to combating the Necro threat abroad.

The airport hub provides a stark contrast to the vacant airliner compartments as crowds swarm the various terminals, seeking to exit the country by any means available. From the Port of Miami to numerous seaside harbors, Miami’s infamous tourist economy may as well serve to spread the rate of infection at an unprecedented speed within a First World nation if not properly contained.

No doubt a coincidence that loses neither impact nor irony due to the dire situation, the city known as “The Gateway of the Americas” as opened its doors to the plight of the walking dead. It has become a literal doorway for the Necro-Mortosis virus to take hold of the United States.

However, strict quarantine procedures and a deeply ingrained survival instinct within the South Floridian populace might serve as the key to stopping the virus dead in its tracks.

Due to the high number of hurricanes and tropical storms experienced by Floridian residents on an annual basis, many analysts speculate that Miami may in fact be the most prepared metropolitan city to weather the zombie threat.

Many homes are equipped with the necessary disaster supplies from hurricane shutters able to withstand relentless Category 5 winds, to food rations for several days. With the recent surge in tropical storm activity in the Caribbean, residents in the area are able to operate and survive autonomously within their home without any outside supplies for 3 days up to a week before emergency crews may be able to reach them.

Stores recently swamped by the demand for emergency rations after the emergence of several Necro-Mortosis infected victims within the area are boosting their supply orders and are finally meeting the needs of the people. This very situation has been one well rehearsed year after year with each approaching hurricane season.

From the surf side recreation stores that litters the beach, owners are reporting that many die hard patrons have begun purchasing light weight shark proof bite suits which seem to have been disappearing from the shelves as quickly as nonperishable food items and lumber.

“Years of multiple hurricane strikes may have turned Miami into a city capable of weathering the undead storm if need be. Provisions of plywood, portable generators, flashlights, batteries, food, water, and gas have been collected early, fairly quickly, and with minimal disruption to normal city operations. Residents are buying supplies to supplement what they have stored from previous hurricanes instead of going out on a mad rush to horde survival items. Families are prepared to wait out the storm in their own fortified homes, keeping the streets clear for police and essential emergency workers.” Says Ruby Kencaid, spokeswoman for the mayor’s office.

The residents know the right numbers to call, the right authorities to contact, and the right steps to take in order to safeguard themselves, their families, and their communities from any outside threat. Be it natural disaster or undead.

City officials hope that it will be enough.

This is René Dupree, Foreign Corresponded for ZWN, reporting from the frontline of the war against Necro-Mortosis.
