If ever there was a time for a zombie flash mob...

...this is that time.
"On Saturday, Aug 16, the city will conduct a "Weapons of Mass Destruction" emergency drill from 9 am to noon at the latest. Piers 30 and 32 are on board for the ride, though we've also heard that there will be two simulated nuclear attacks, the first around 10 a.m. at 555 California Street, and the second around 1 at 1 Post Street."

Update: More details.

    If they give an exact street address of a nuclear attack, does that preclude an air burst, or can we assume the explosion will take place at street level?

    I also like that they chose the Bank of America building (or whatever the hell they call it now) as one of the targets.

      Terrorists don't have planes.

    It conveniently finishes in time for the Zombie Flash Mob.

      Duh, the disaster planning folks forgot about the biological warfare component, which will create the zombie mob in the aftermath of the nuclear detonations.

    Made a quick call to the SF Redevelopment Agency, and they were as surprised to hear about this as we were. Mind you, as a promotion for nuclear zombies, it's not bad.

    Interesting that they choose the BofA building for the first and I think 1 Post is the McKesson building. . which is right across the street from where I work.

    The City of San Francisco has clearly forgotten the first two rules of Fight Club.

    The SFPD and Sheriff's department are refusing to give more information to non-press callers. I left a message for the FBI SF office, but they haven't called me back yet.

    The FCC hasn't received any related requests, but that's not so unusual.

    The fire department isn't taking calls either. Hmm.
