zombie apocalypse

Last year, the Foreign Policy magazine released an unclassified Pentagon document, entitled "Conplan 8888-11 counter-zombie dominance":

Here is the document:

My question is this: would the USVI be a good or a bad place to be, in the event such an apocalypse happens?

If you spend any amount of time dealing with the VI Govt the whole zombie thing should be a walk in the park for you.

I understand that the conventional zombies may appear like a nuisance compared to the USVI government bureaucrats, but the posted document contains references to special type of zombies, called CZ (chicken zombies). Given the number of wild chickens in USVI, it would be good to know the survival tactics when these chickens turn into CZs.

We would be better off than the states.

1. Zombies don't swim.
2. The sea provides a geographic boundary.
3. Most deaths in the apocalypse are from lack of food and water. We have food potential year round and self contained water storage through cisterns.
4. Zombies wouldn't go where the economy sucks.

I was thinking along the same lines. It would probably take a while before zombies reach USVI. However, once they make it here, it would be much more difficult to cope with them. There is simply nowhere to run and hide!

Here are two other factors to consider:

1. According to the Pentagon document, zombies are vulnerable to UV light. This makes USVI appealing for human survival.

2. According to the same document, asteroid strikes can cause the mutation of people into zombies. That's troubling, because in September of 2015, a big asteroid is expected to hit the Earth near Puerto Rico.

I googled point number 2.. Fun reading.

If an asteroid hits near PR, I don't think we will have to worry about zombies. There would be none of us left to do any worrying.
