San Diego is a city in the state of California located south of Los Angeles. It was only mentioned in passing. When the remaining members of a National Guard unit flee from the West View Library after been overrun, they said that their destination was San Diego. The reason for this could be the fact that San Diego hosts a large military presence such as the San Diego Naval Base and a training depot for the U.S. Marine Corp.
San Diego was mentioned again during Season 2 as a possible destination for the survivors aboard The Abigail. However, George Geary mentions to Travis that San Diego was bombed by the military. This action seems to fit with the overall aims and objectives of Operation Cobalt, as the military were trying to stem the flow of infected streaming out of major urban centers.
It is currently unknown what effect the bombing of San Diego has had on the Mexican city of Tijuana, given the shared boarder crossing between the two cities.
Indeed, it is unknown even if the city was bombed. When Brandon's Group mentioned they were heading to San Diego, Travis said the city was bombed, Chris said they never went to the city, so they don't actually know IF the city was bombed.
- San Diego is Spanish for Saint Diego.
- San Diego shares a boarder with the city of Tijuana in Mexico.
