Will Hurricane Sandy unleash a zombie apocalypse? Don’t laugh at the idea, because this violent storm is pounding the hell out of the East Coast. In line of its attack is none other than the Plum Island Animal Disease Center — a testing facility. The facility is bracing itself against the raging hurricane, but what could happen if the place wasn’t secure? What about other facilities of similar natures in the area?
It’s being reported that safety is a top concern with the people at the disease center, so they are taking extra precautions to make sure nothing is destroyed or poses a threat to the public. There are also actions being taken to make sure everything inside of the facility is safe and well taken care of, including food and safety measures for the animals that are kept in the labs.
There are also several nuclear plants in the path of Hurricane Sandy as well as other facilities that could prove dangerous if damaged. A massive transformer explosion is already known to have occurred in New York this evening.
