The Space-Borne Contagion
A Timeline of Major Events Thus Far
November 28th, 2011: An asteroid the size of Mt. Everest crashes into central Manitoba
December 15th, 2011: The UN convenes and a nearly world-wide humanitarian effort is focused on Canada.
February 2nd, 2012: A violent riot wipes all life from a small shanty town near the 10 km crater. No explanation for the riot is given. Over the next two months, these riots spread throughout the country.
April 1st, 2012: What little remains of the Canadian government is either evacuated or killed by the still spreading wave of violence. All borders and international travel between Canada and every other country is closed.
April 18th, 2012: Chinese news stations begin reporting riots similar to those that occurred previously in Canada, reports that are quickly quashed by the government. The violence quickly spreads, and countries bordering China attempt in vain to keep their borders secured.
April 30th, 2012: The brutal violence extends from China to the Middle East. The United States military completely removes itself from the area and withdraws to American soil, leaving the Middle Eastern countries to fend for themselves.
August 19th, 2012: Violent outbursts begin occurring on the British Isles, news outlets report successful quarantine efforts, though the accuracy of these reports is not verified.
September 6th, 2012: Favorable air currents finally fail the United States as large amounts of debris from the impact begin falling on Canada’s closest neighbor.
December 20th, 2012: The quarantine at the northern border of the United States is breached, and news from the area is sparse at best.
Today is December 21st, 2012.
