Just in time for Halloween, Trulia has — literally — mapped out the worst places to be in the event of a zombie apocalypse. Using a combination of logic and paranormal capabilities, the residential real estate website has created public information maps which show areas that are most at risk during a zombie apocalypse, as well as other unnatural hazards such as a vampire attack or ghostly haunting.

Where To Avoid The Walking Dead

Whatever you call them– zombies, walkers, biters, cold bodies, creepers, dead ones, or roamers – it’s no laughing matter when a dead body becomes reanimated and wants to eat you for lunch.

To determine a specific location’s risk for a zombie infestation, Trulia used cemetery locations from the U.S. Census and combined that information with OpenStreetMap’s tagged cemeteries to create a detailed cemetery base map. From these data points, Trulia calculated degrees of risk based on the minimum distance to a cemetery for every block group in the country.

Office near a cemetery? Good luck – especially if you’re in Providence, RI. Looking at all major urban areas with more than 800,000 people, the worst places to be in the event of a zombie apocalypse were identified based on the number of cemeteries per 50,000 people.

Zombies aren’t the only threat taken into account: Based on the basic premise that vampires will congregate in areas where blood is readily available, Trulia created a vampire threat map. Examining all major urban areas with more than 800,000 people, Trulia identified the worst places to live if vampires start to walk the earth based on the number of hospitals and blood banks per 50,000 people.
