We interrupt this broadcast with breaking news of the zombie apocalypse.

The Montana Television Network said that the Emergency Alert System of Great Falls affiliate KRTV and its local CW station were hacked Monday.

Pretty sure they’re correct. Watch it go down live below!

Hacker Warns of Zombies on Local News

The hacker(s) hilariously activated the emergency warning system to broadcast that "dead bodies are rising from their graves" in several Montana counties.


No word if the perp(s) were inspired by The Walking Dead Season 3 premiere the night before … or if they are actually rogue zombies themselves. Scary.

The alert claimed the bodies were "attacking the living" and warned people not to "approach or apprehend these bodies as they are extremely dangerous."

So we’ve heard.

The network says there is no emergency and its engineers are investigating. Whomever is responsible for this will surely be eaten alive … sorry.

The Great Falls Tribune reports the hoax alert generated at least four calls to police to see if it was true. Absurd, but it did use the actual alert system.
