'Storm Area 51' spawns copycat campaigns

Inspired by the recent social media phenomenon, other people have started setting up their own 'storm' events.
Keen to ride the momentum of Matty Roberts' wildly successful (yet squarely tongue-in-cheek) campaign to see thousands of people storm the Area 51 facility in Nevada, Facebook user Anthony Carnovale has launched his own effort to solve another of the world's most enduring mysteries.

Entitled "Storm The Bermuda Triangle, It Can't Swallow All Of Us", the new endeavour seeks to send as many people in to the infamous 270,000-square-mile stretch of ocean as possible.

Carnovale has even set up a fundraiser to book live music performances for the event.

"I'm legit trying to throw a party for everyone so they'll come to my thing," he wrote. "This is the time for assembly to show this country we can organize. Let's go have a good time."
"Let's still clap these sea monster cheeks. Ok. Let's all just have fun."

The event is just one of several dozen to have cropped up in the wake of the success of the original 'Storm Area 51' campaign with others targeting everywhere from SeaWorld to the White House.

As things stand, a whopping 2.5 million have signed up to go to Area 51 on September 20th.

Exactly how many people will actually turn up on the day however remains unclear.

Poor Rachel but if visitors do bring a lot of cash it might turn out to be good in the end hehe

good point, but it is not just things they have to bring, it is what those thousands will leave behind.  like crap, urine and garbage, that will leave a lasting impression, lol

Sorry, I'm not one of those panicking or getting stressed by media. I can tell you right now that nothing will happen. Remind me to remind you when time is good.

If you visit poor Rachel's website, looks like any plans they had for this turning out well are done, and they are really scared of people coming. You can see them express it themselves: http://www.rachel-nevada.com/ I've actually been there years ago on an Area 51 trip myself, and it is such an unbelievably tiny community, and when I went there with none of this popularity back in 2013 or 2014, the locals already had signs out with "Private Property" and "No Tresspassing" everywhere. I hope they do okay and that most of this is just hype.

There will be a couple of morons showing up and getting sent home to their mother s basement with a 300 dollar fine or something. There wont be a storming of any kind.

The minimum fine is over $600 (or at least was in 2013). Here's my personal copy:

So like I said months ago, the "millions" were about 75 stoners, party goers and attention seekers that did it "for the lulz of being on TV". So no national threat, no bullets were fired. I think we all can say that panicking isn't worth it.

And it seems only about 100 showed up. https://heavy.com/news/2019/09/area-51-raid-how-many-showed-up/ The rest came for the alien festival.
