"Nuclear Scare Finally Ebbed. --Daniel Weishaupt
Cityvale officals have finally conceeded today that the disasterous nuclear waste spill that forced half of the city's population from their homes has been successfully dealt with by emergency cleanup crews dispatched by FEMA's Special Deployments Division. The spill, caused by a major reactor leak in the Hartford Nuclear Power Provision plant just south of Shady Lane road, was cited as "a situation of incredible concern" by Emergency Response Unit Chief Patrick Hughes. In compliance with national safety laws, all residents within a large radius of the leak were forced to vacate their homes while the Special Deployments Division dealt with the difficult task of cleaning up.
Within three days time, the restrictions have been lifted and citizens are thankfully returning to their homes in relief. "We're just glad this is over for now," Chief of Police Roderick Grey said earlier this morning. "I don't want to see something of this scale anywhere near this place again, that's for sure." Exhibiting a somewhat apprehensive posture, he wished to extend his gratitude to those risking their lives to contain the problem.
Though the problem was speedily dealth with, there were some with strange feelings about the temporary, but harrowing affair.
"I don't recall hearing anything suspicious." said one woman who was asked to leave her home Saturday night. "One minute I was watching TV, the next I was being funneled out the door by a bunch of government guys. It was all kinda creepy."
"Funny, but I don't recall ever having painted this wall this way," Chuck Ford, a Cityvale resident suspiciously pointed out, showing us a section of the outside of his home that seemed to have been discolored, as if painted over or replaced. "I guess I just never noticed it, but it seems different somehow. Ever since I got back, that is. I don't know what the deal is."
Though the event was quite chilling for those involved, thankfully there were no significant injuries to report."
--Quiet cover-up for one of X-Corps anti-terror urban operations. What do you think?
