++Breaking news: only 10% of Romulus evacuated so far++

Reports from early listening probes indicate that Hobus has gone nova, and will strike the Romulan home system faster than expected: in the next week, worse than many scientists had feared. The Federation Council has confirmed a vessel of classified specification has been sent to attempt to create a black hole and absorb the shockwave. However, it is believed that no vessel will make the journey in time to prevent the destruction of Romulus.

The location of the Senate and Romulan leadership is unknown at this time.

Federation-wide reports are expected to be interrupted by the subspace effects of the explosion. Please keep connected to your local planetary news service for possible evacuation orders.
