CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Would Cincinnati be the best city to be in if a zombie apocalypse were to happen? Not really, according to Trulia. 

With Halloween around the corner, real estate website Trulia made the "Unnatural Hazards maps." The maps, meant to be in good fun, use local data surrounding proximity to cemeteries, blood banks to identify where you would most likely find zombies, ghosts and vampires.

According to Trulia's findings, Cincinnati is the No. 7  most vulnerable city for zombie attacks. 

Trulia found that there are 5.4 cemeteries per 50,000 people in Cincinnati. Providence, R.I. would see the most "walkers" with 11.5 cemeteries per 50,000 people. Cleveland also was the No. 10  most vulnerable city for zombie attacks. 

For determining a home’s risk for a zombie infestation, Trulia used cemetery locations from the U.S. Census and mashed it up with OpenStreetMap‘s tagged cemeteries to create a detailed cemetery base map. From those data points, they calculated degrees of risk based on the minimum distance to a cemetery for every block group in the country.

Regarding cities in close proximity to Cincinnati, Indianapolis wouldn't fare well, ranking No. 9 most vulnerable city for zombie attacks and No. 8 city in the country at risk for a ghost sighting, according to Trulia. Louisville, Ky ranked No. 4 likeliest place to get attacked by a vampire and No. 9  city at risk for a ghost sighting.

Start getting those zombie survival kits ready, just in case.
