Cobb County has an important message for Georgia drivers: Zombies ahead. Seriously. Officials are posting two message boards warning those behind the wheel that they may encounter zombies in the area, which is being used to film scenes from AMC's The Walking Dead on Monday, reports the Marietta Daily Journal. The show follows a sheriff who emerges from a coma to find the world overtaken by zombies.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution adds that residents of one office building got a second warning: "Simulated gunfire will be taking place during the filming of these scenes as actors are confronted by a horde of zombies."
