I live in SW Missouri and there are a lot of mines, mining towns and stuff like that (here and in NE Oklahoma) and there are actually a fair amount of ghost towns because of it. Most of the people had to leave these entire towns because the ground was shifting (due to the mining that had been taking place there for decades) There had even been additions recently. They are modern but completely empty towns, all that you can do is drive through. Anyone else have some of these around? These places would be perfect to film Zombie flicks.
