temporary state of quarantine was imposed on the tourist town of Broome
late last night. This is following the confirmed report of 'as many
as' twenty undead having escaped from a shipping container at the Broome
Port. According to Port officials, the container, registered from Thailand,
was inventoried as carrying excavating machinery loaned to a Canberra
based Thai construction company.
Port Authority storage supervisor Carter Mason, was the first to open
the container. "We had a report of a moaning sound inside one of
our crates, we called Port Authorities and took a look. We noticed the
seal had not been broken since shipping from Thailand, so we figured
it may have been illegal's who were in bad shape. 'It was a huge shock'
he continued, "We opened it and instinctively I ran for it, we
all did". The eight workers at the port on night shift quickly
departed the dock and alerted the Broome police, who called in all available
police officers in the area. Port security was able to secure some of
the points of exit until police arrived, however, none of the undead
have as yet been traced.
It is believed the
reanimates may have moved into the scrub and beaches close by the port,
which is surrounded by water on three sides.
Residents were urged to remain indoors and roadblocks and detours have
been set up on all major intersections leading in and out of Broome.
Two Zombie Hunting Teams have been requested and are currently en route
from Perth to assist police in the neutralization of the infected. Chief
of Broome Police, Richard Southern,said there are plans to temporarily
lockdown the town if the situation dictates. 'We urge all residents
and tourists to stay indoors and call the police to anything suspicious'
he said. "A red alert usually used in tropical cyclones situations
has been declared, meaning any member of the public must stay indoors
until the alert is cancelled.
remain at this point, as to the intention behind smuggling reanimates
from Thailand. A police spokesperson said Thai police were assisting
in all investigations.
