ATTENTION: THIS IS AN NOT A TEST
Authorities believe that a dangerous blood-borne virus is to blame for the sudden spike in both murders and deaths in recent weeks in and around Kansas City. It is thought to be the same virus discovered in River Grove, Oregon where at least twenty people were discovered dead in 2006. Scientists have made no comments about whether this is the same strain found in the Niveus Pharmaceuticals swine flu vaccine in 2010. Authorities are calling the virus “Croatoan.”
Speculation that this may be an premeditated attack of biological warfare has forced government officials to take action. By order of Acting Regional Command, residents of Kansas City and outline areas are required to evacuate by August 1st, 2014. Entry to the area will be prohibited and strictly enforced beginning that date. Displaced residents in need of shelter are urged to contact their local law enforcement. All evacuees will be asked to provide identification and may be subject to onsite medial testing. Any evacuees resisting official directives will be detained. Authorities urge residents to use marked evacuation routes to maintain efficiency.
Sources say that victims of the virus are known to be physically aggressive and show a drive to attack others. If you encounter an infected individual, DO NOT ENGAGE. Contact local law enforcement immediately and seek refuge.
Please, do your part and spread the word. Your safety, and the safety of your neighbors, is our number one concern.
Future Dean. Brought to you by Kansas City. August 1st, 2014. Welcome to the future.

For anyone who is confused about the chronology of the whole Croatoan thing in 5.04 ‘The End’, the uppermost screencap is what supernaturalwiki has to say on the subject. It boils down to this:
- The sign tells us that Kansas City was ruled a ‘Croatoan Virus Hot Zone’ on August 1st (hence our weeping and wailing today is justified).
- Assuming that the newspaper Zachariah leaves behind for Dean to look at is current to the day Dean pops up in 2014, he actually arrives on August 4th.
- He is in 2014 for three days; from the 4th to the 7th, and then he is sent home to 2009. (So technically, we could have a week-long Croatoan meltdown, from the 1st to the 7th…)
- On the Season 5 DVD commentary for ‘The End’, Eric Kripke and Ben Edlund state that this version of 2014 is an alternate universe, rather than time travel.
Hope that helps^.^
