So This Is How the Invasion Starts...

Mystery illness strikes after meteorite hits Peruvian village
Villagers in southern Peru were struck by a mysterious illness after a meteorite made a fiery crash to Earth in their area, regional authorities said Monday.

Around midday Saturday, villagers were startled by an explosion and a fireball that many were convinced was an airplane crashing near their remote village, located in the high Andes department of Puno in the Desaguadero region, near the border with Bolivia.

Residents complained of headaches and vomiting brought on by a "strange odor," local health department official Jorge Lopez told Peruvian radio RPP.

...

"Boiling water started coming out of the crater and particles of rock and cinders were found nearby. Residents are very concerned," he said.
Didn't War of the World's pretty much begin this way? Only this time, they're giving the illness to us...

Time to head for the hills!
