Pittsburgh has become the best city to survive the zombie apocalypse

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The zombie apocalypse may or may not be coming, depending on who you talk to.

Okay, while a zombie apocalypse might be an extreme scene out of a horror movie, that doesn’t mean people in the real world aren’t prepared to deal with the undead.

Website Lawn Love dug up the graves (and the facts) to find out which cities across America are best suited for a nightmare scenario. And Pittsburgh was named one of the best cities during the riots.

“Inspired by the CDC’s Zombie Preparedness 101 guide, Lawn Love has scoured the graveyard of data to rank the best cities in 2022 to survive a zombie apocalypse,” the website says.

The website compared the 200 largest US cities on 26 key indicators of preparedness for a zombie invasion, such as the proportion of the living population in poor health and access to “bunkers”, hunting tackle shops and supermarkets.

Pittsburgh ranks 9th on the list with an overall score of 51.48, highlighted by rankings for items such as grocery stores, drugstores and shopping centers. The website’s vulnerability assessment also positions the city as a strong base to defend against brain eaters.

Whether the zombies dig in or not, it’s nice to know that the Steel City is seen as a reliable resource in the event of an apocalyptic disaster.
