Zombie Apocalypse Cdc Advice crashes website temporarily

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Georgia has released a set of "tongue-in-cheek" preparedness guidelines for a zombie attack.

CDC spokesman Dave Daigle said Assistant Surgeon General Ali Khan posted the "tongue-in-cheek" guidelines to the agency's blog after officials noticed a sharp increase in Web site traffic after zombies were mentioned on the site, the Chicago Tribune reported Friday.

"Plan your evacuation route. When zombies are hungry, they won't stop until they get food (i.e., brains), which means you need to get out of town fast," the blog post reads. "Plan where you would go and multiple routes you would take ahead of time so that the flesh eaters don't have a chance!"

Daigle said officials hope the post will draw in users to read the more serious advice on the Web site.

"Public health and preparedness are not sexy," Daigle said. "But it turns out, zombies are."
