RACHEL, Nev. (KLAS) — It’s day three of “Storm Area 51”, and the festivities are continuing in the town of Rachel.
The “extraterrestrial” events have brought an estimated 3,000 people to the small town with a population of less than 60.
The Little A’Le’Inn planned the event after the “Storm Area 51” Facebook page went viral, despite the creator claiming it was a joke. All jokes aside, there were many who made the trek to try and “see them aliens.”
Lincoln County Emergency Management says it’s been relatively calm event. Law enforcement has reported a total of seven arrests, including three for trespassing. Police responded to three car crashes involving cars and animals, as well as a rollover incident this morning.
“Alienstock” continues in Rachel tonight, and it’s likely we’ll see more of the strange and unusual throughout the day.
