Angriff auf Bodega Bay

"...the bird attacks have subsided for the time being. Bodega Bay seems to be the center though there are reports of minor attacks on Sebastopol and a few on Santa Rosa. Bodega Bay has been courtened off by road blocks. Most of the town's people have managed to get out though there are still some isolated pockets of people. No decision has been arrived at yet as to what the next step will be, but there has been some discussion as to whether the military should go in. It appears that the bird attacks come in waves with long intervals between. The reason for this does not seem clear as yet."
