Zombie Apocalypse

If you're reading this right now, you're probably curious about your own survival should a zombie apocalypse actually break out. Before you chalk all this zombie talk up to just some Hollywood horror movie that could never happen, you should keep this in mind that zombie folklore has been around for centuries. Based in myth or truth, it's really up to you what you believe.

Here's a quick history of the zombie.

Perhaps based in some kind of truth, but evolving along the way into a twisted tale of fantasy? Sure, but what if it could happen?

Zombie Preparedness

So, if a zombie apocalypse were to occur, how prepared are you? How prepared is Killeen as a whole?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offered some tips back in 2011 should a zombie apocalypse take place. I highly recommend you take a few notes and strongly urge you to prepare a kit just incase. Better safe than sorry.

The Zombie Apocalypse in Texas

Can anybody or city be 100% ready for such an event? No, but turns out some cities are a bit more naturally prepared than others.

Lawn Love took their cue from the CDC's “Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocalypse” guide to list the top cities that are ready to survive a zombie apocalypse. Lawn Love looked at the top 200 cities in the country and compiled their list based on several factors that included vulnerability, hideouts, supplies, protection and mobility. Texas has 23 of the top 200 cities. Some are better prepared than others.

Is Killeen, Texas Ready for The Zombie Apocalypse?

Killeen did pretty good overall, ranking as the 10th best Texas city and the 91st city out of 200. Killeen scored best in "Hideout Rank" and "Mobility Rank". I'm no genius here but it seems we stand a pretty good chance of survival in Killeen.

Let's hope we never have to put these skills to use but if we do, some cities will be naturally better prepared than others. Killeen has a fighting chance.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State

To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery. Keep reading to find out what the best beer is in each of the 50 states and Washington D.C.
