Event Date: 9-2-1986
Description: Morning finds Rio in utter chaos. The number of
"undead" is near 200. Survivors seek shelter in homes, churches,
office buildings and anywhere else they feel is safe. Looting is

help the situation. They are of little help because they don't know
that a shot to the torsea didn't work against them. Many are killed.
Even worse news comes from the Amazon. Hordes of "undead" are moving
out of the jungle.
