In a blog post, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention agency urgesAmericans to prepare a kit if the Nightof the Living Dead ends up a reality, stating, "The rise of zombies inpop culture has given credence to the idea that a zombie apocalypse couldhappen."

The facetious post aims to prepare Americans for real potential disasters likehurricanes and floods. A spokesman says the agency used the zombie referencebecause staff noticed a surge in traffic on the CDC site when zombies werementioned in passing during a recent Twitter session on radiation following thenuclear plant meltdown in Japan.


The zombie disaster kit includes food, water, first aid, and your importantdocuments, but if you're going up against zombies, a blunt object may also beuseful.
