A blimp-shaped object has been spotted in the sky off the coast of Canada, prompting locals to flee in terror, stock up on essential supplies and build bomb shelters.
One eyewitness describes it as being 'blimp-shape' and hovering slowly over the countryside in a 'blimp-like' manner.
Another person said that they hadn't actually seen it but that they know of others who have and they described it as being very 'blimp-esque' and pink in color.
Canadian authorities are on high alert with Mounties being equipped with binoculars and whistles.
In the event of another sighting, people have been advised to stay indoors and to duck and cover beneath a table or other solid surface.
An alien invasion by UFO's has not been ruled out.
In other news, a worried Michigan businessman has reported missing a blimp he uses for advertising a Dolly Parton concert.
It appears that he was using twin balloons to promote the busty country singers visit to their State.
The craft was blown off-course and was last seen headed northwards. There have been no sightings thus far.
