Winter storm today!
Dr. Gale says this snowstorm will be the largest snowstorm before Christmas, thus the largest snow storm in 2014. Winds aren't going to be the worst part — 13 feet (4 metres) of snow will be dumped on Union City. This snow could fill up an entire floor of a building!
Snow plows and emergency units should be the only ones out during the storm. Once again, all survivors are advised to complete their scavenging missions before the storm, so they do not need to go out. Tune in to Dead Zone 99.9 FM Radio News for live, 24/7 updates on the situation.
Most zombies will be affected by the snow; only the larger zombies and the zombie dogs will be able to dig through the snow towards survivor compounds. More on page 3...

Zombies swarm Ireland
U.K. military reports that zombies hid aboard an illegal boat crossing the ocean from Great Britain to the Irish Republic. When the illegal emigrants disembarked, so did the zombies. Ireland is amongst the few large islands left that have not been infested with zombies.
A fence is being constructed across the western side of the island to stop the spread of zombies. The fence is patrolled 24/7 and nobody who isn't part of the military or government will be allowed to pass. More on page 11...
Auburn haunted by Lake Blakeridge ghost
The ghost of Lake Blakeridge moved to Auburn for whatever reason. 10 of Dane's followers have fled to Union City and another 4 went to Jonestown after reported sightings of the ghost within the walls of the fort. Wine bottles inside sealed bottles also turned cloudy, and fresh milk instantly turned sour.
Dane says he will remain put but hopes the ghost is friendly, or at least, "Not dangerous." More on page 14...
