Where should you live to avoid natural disasters?
This seemed like a great follow-on question to yesterday’s one about Moore, OK; since so many people in that thread mentioed relocating to safer ground. Where is the safe ground? According to this I’m living in one of the safest parts of the USA when it comes to escaping nature’s wrath. But one massive, winter coastal-storm with hurricane force winds, extremes of snow and ice, could black out electricity to the area for weeks and bring sub-zero temperatures that would leave many dead in its wake. Where do you think is the safest spot to live in order to avoid natural disasters? Is it safe from man-made disasters as well? How about crime? What do you see as acceptable risk?
