‘Storm Area 51’ emergency as officials predict up to 40,000 will gather and warn clash with military ‘will get ugly’

OFFICIALS where “Storm Area 51” events will take place fear up to 40,000 may gather –

The two-million-strong Facebook event – “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All Of Us” – launched as a web prank in July to “see them aliens”.

It calls on gatherers to form en masse at 3am on September 20 to overrun the mysterious US air base – which is at the centre of alien conspiracy theories.

But the event has now morphed into a three-day alien-themed festival that local officials in sparse Lincoln County fear could overwhelm the area.

It’s due to take place in the tiny hamlet of Rachel, Nevada – which has a population of around just 50 and a small motel.
