A city power outage alert in Lake Worth on Sunday caused concern in residents for its mention of zombies.

That’s correct. Zombies.

The article goes on to state the following:

The message was sent during a power outage at about 1:45 a.m., but it also warned of “zombie alert for Lake Worth and Terminus,” potentially referencing the city in the zombie TV show “The Walking Dead.”

“There are now far less than seven-thousand-three-hundred-eighty customers involved due to extreme zombie activity,” the notice said.

Lake Worth Live, a community Facebook page, said an update from the city indicated the message was unintended.

“We are looking into reports that the system mentioned zombies,” said Ben Kerr, the city’s public information officer, in the post.

“I want to reiterate that Lake Worth does not have any zombie activity currently and apologize for the system message.”
