The anomalous effects in Los Angeles County that accompanied the explosion in the desert also appear to have abated, though it is estimated over 100 supernaturals or those with supernatural abilities were injured or killed during the unexplained event.
In Los Angels, while the US Government has repeatedly stated that it believes a natural gas pocket was breeched during routine construction of an underground bunker facility, there are serious questions that have yet to be answered. Government officials have been unresponsive to further inquiries, however, first responders were finally allowed on scene to the site of the desert explosions which took place recently just outside the city. So far, no survivors have been found, the bodies recovered have been burned beyond recognition.
On site details are sketchy and the first responders have only been allowed to investigate the areas of the first basement level with other levels closed, supposedly for decontamination. It is unclear at this point how deep the facility goes, military personnel have been bringing out bodies in various states of being burned, though all of them are burned so bad that dental records will have to be used for identification.
The anomalous effects in Los Angeles County that accompanied the explosion in the desert also appear to have abated, though it is estimated over 100 supernaturals or those with supernatural abilities were injured or killed during the unexplained event. Investigators from the local government who deal with supernatural events have begun to look into possible explanations, but so far have found nothing.
Within hours of the explosion that ripped through desert tonight, supernatural entities have reported deaths as they fleet the city, unable to call upon their abilities. It seems the explosion has caused a swath of some 50 miles around the site to become some kind of area of exclusion to supernatural abilities, including magic and psionics. Creatures who rely on their supernatural abilities have scant time to leave as the effects begin to worsen over time. Undead creatures are the most susceptible as their supernatural nature keeps them alive.
Older and more powerful supernaturals seem to have more time, however, the exodus of the Los Angeles area continues, without access to their abilities many are scrambling to find conventional means of transportation.
First responders initial reports have been classified as top secret, and restricted from the public. Two recordings of the initial back-and-forth between 1st responders arriving on site and dispatch have leaked, though their authenticity has yet to be verified.
A massive underground explosion took place in the desert outside of Los Angeles at exactly 8:00 pm on Tuesday January 1st, 2019. Rescue teams were dispatched from Los Angeles immediately, however military units arrived on site shortly after and have declared an the area to be a restricted zone, rescue workers were not permitted entry, claiming national security.
The mayor of Los Angeles has filed an official protest with the United States Navy, who reportedly is somehow involved with how the land is used. However, the land itself is owned by a company RTL Holdings LLC, the CEO is named as one Edward Brass and has not responded to any contact attempts.
First responders initial reports have been classified as top secret, and restricted from the public. Two recordings of the initial back-and-forth between 1st responders arriving on site and dispatch have leaked, though their authenticity has yet to be verified. Both recordings are from different divisions, one from the California Department of Forestry and the other from the Los Angeles County Sheriffs Department. Both recordings have officers and firemen talking about a blue-green flame and waves of some unknown form of energy coming off of a massive glowing blue ball before the recordings are cut. If these recordings are true, experts remain unsure as to what kind of event could have caused such combustion and suggest that perhaps toxic fumes caused hallucinations.
Several murders throughout Los Angeles County have raised eyebrows as a pattern emerges of a vigilante taking care of low-level gang bangers. Slugs retrieved from the crime scenes all clearly link this to the same perpetrator through analysis of the bullets, which are unusually heavy and show trace evidence of motor oil and a number of other odd contaminants.
Police are theorizing that the perpetrator may have been caught doing some other crime and incarcerated, or perhaps left the area as several weeks have gone by without a new killing attributed to the killer. It is clear that the killer has a high amount of professional skill with the act of killing and evidence to date suggests a potential military background. This would certainly not be the first time Los Angeles had found military-trained killers in their midsts but the first time in a considerable time that such a killer was attacking these kinds of targets.
Many in the communities effected are praising the vigilante for doing what the police could not – keeping them safe.
