What began as a joke — “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us,” Matty Roberts posted on June 27 — quickly spiraled out of hand.
“If we hadn’t had them (Clark County) on board, we would have been in trouble,” Lincoln County Commissioner Varlin Higbee said Saturday.
Check out Friday’s scene from the Storm Area 51 events in Rachel and Hiko, Nevada.
Two people were injured in the crash, which occurred Saturday morning in a dry lake bed in Rachel, near the Alienstock festival. One was airlifted to receive medical care.
The scheduled musical artists won’t be coming to Hiko, but speakers will still appear inside the Alien Research Center. A few vendors chose to stick around, too.
