Ground Zero

If the zombie apocalypse hit each of our hometowns tomorrow, what would the world look like? While some of us live in huge cities like New York City and Los Angeles, many more of us come from smaller towns — ones that are strikingly similar to those in Class3.

As an experiment, we’re creating an “Undead Labs Outbreak Map” to visualize where all of us would be holed up during an outbreak. Help our research by adding your city, state, and country to our short form here. Next week we’ll share the results, so stay tuned!

Thanks, everyone!

    I’ve submitted my home town in the midlands in the UK and also a small island off the Welsh Coast close to where my girlfriend lives. It’s where we are planning to go when the reanimated sh*t hits the fan.

    A place with a lot of post apocalyptic potential!

      Not to mention the local wildlife/farmland for sustenance and a lighthouse which will be great for signalling inland supply runs, survivors or even military rescue parties (If we want to be found that is…)

      Im from wales and the perfect place would be in the neath valleys. There are plenty of small towns running through the valleys with many mountanous roads.

    Tiny town Warrenton Oregon is my zombified playground. with LOTS of forestry, swamps, and the ocean I’m quite sure it’d be the experience of a lifetime, and in some cases, two ;D

    Awesome, you guys! Thanks so much for putting your towns down. I’m seeing all KINDS of cool places come in, so the map is going to be a lot of fun :)

    Keep ‘em coming!

      I’m in a small town called Kerhonkson (NY) in the Hudson Valley.
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hudson_Valley

      Before colonists claimed the land, the native americans referred to the town I live in as “Shawangunk” which roughly means “hidden in the mist”.
      Fog formations are heavy and frequent during some parts of the year, and should a zombie outbreak occur during such a time… well low visibility when your fighting for your life I can only imagine would be scary as hell.
      Theres a vast amount of forest and back roads. Good amount of stream channels, and a large variety of wildlife.

      Dont know how much info you wanted (if even this much) but just thought I would share :D

      Taking my stand at Fort Jennings, Ohio. Just wait for it, my town has 432 people. Should be easy pickings come Z-Day, 432 zombies, and all the surrounding towns only have a few thousand a piece. Would probably take a few weeks to months for the zombies from the closest city of 50k to get here, well enough time to fortify my base.
