CAUTION. RADIATION HAZARD. NO TRESPASSING BEYOND RESTRICTED ZONES.
Scientists from the Panem Department of Homeland Safety (PDHS) have determined that ambient radiation levels throughout former District 13 have risen significantly over the past month, causing President Snow to issue strict new safety measures limiting citizens' exposure to the still-smoldering area.
PDHS Commissar General, Arulius Wrenner, publicly announced that all Panem citizens should keep at least five miles from the District 13 border to limit exposure to potentially deadly radiation. Peacekeepers have been dispatched to manage the new safety measures.
The former Northeastern District has been abandoned for over 74 years due to the Dark Days Anti-Panem terrorist insurgents' slaughter of countless citizens. Peacekeeper forces heroically liberated it and were successful in defeating the anti-Panem terrorists, but were forced to destroy the area to save it.
For decades scientists have doubted the possibility of human habitation in the former district due to its high levels of deadly radiation. Even the possibility of wildlife in the smoldering district has been questioned as very little sustainable ecology is said to exist there.
"Radiation levels in the former District 13 rise from time to time." Said Wrenner. "There is no need for citizens of Panem's surrounding Districts to panic as long as they expressly follow the Department's safety recommendations. "
Citizens! The Capitol and President Snow are issuing yet another warning about the radiation levels in the former District 13. Please re-read the PRECEEDING mandatory announcement!
