According to Mr. Redbody, guard number 3425 of the colony, rescue workers today searched for victims of a giant foot that tripped through several local colonies this weekend, killing at least 234 in Antville, where a devastating foot touched down and left trapped survivors still crying out for help this morning.
Queen Bigbutt declared a state of emergency Sunday evening and activated the Army Ants in response to the destruction.
The nursery in Antville was fully evacuated after it took a direct hit from the shoe. Every cavern in the facility was caved in and the roof pressed to the floor. Seven drones have been reported dead, according to guards.
In the city of about 550,000, 160 inches south of Insect City, the foot was reported to be a foot long, with a weight of nearly 300 lbs that ravaged the area.
Authorities estimate 25 to 30 percent of Antville has been damaged by the shoe, with highly populated areas having been hit by the stride.
Phrenological distress could be smelt early this morning from those trapped below the Earth, while crews have been pulling out bodies and lining them up in the tunnels for loved ones to identify, according to ANT news affiliate GagaX.
Even more damaging than the foot, there are unconfirmed reports of aspartame rain causing devastation even greater than the shoe in a neighboring colony.
