A bizarre Montana story is making national news and is in the top ten most searched on Yahoo today.  Great Falls KRTV affiliate and its CW station's broadcast was interrupted by news of a zombie apocalypse Monday.

The Montana Television Network says hackers broke into the emergency alert system, warning people that "dead bodies were rising from their graves and attacking the living."

The Great Falls Tribune reports the hoax alert generated at least four calls to police.
A notice on KRTV's website says they're investigating.

Our producer has put in several calls to KRTV this morning, but was unable to get in touch with anyone for a comment.
