GREAT FALLS, Montana — Engineers at a TV station in Montana are trying to figure out who hacked into the Emergency Alert System.

According to a post on KRTV.com, someone announced on KRTV that there was an emergency in several Montana counties.

KRTV says the message did not originate from their TV station, and that there was no emergency.

The message calmly informed viewers that “dead bodies are rising from their graves.”

According to the Great Falls Tribune, at least four people called police to see if the message was true.
