Top 5 Cities Safest from Natural Disasters
You really can do something about the weather – move to places that are far less prone to the severe varieties of it. We’ve ranked the 23 most populous cities in the U.S. based on their safety from weather and other natural disasters. These may include flood, hail, tornadoes, wildfires, hurricanes, earthquakes, and winter storms.
We can’t predict the weather, but living in these cities can help you avoid it:
1) Detroit, MI
Don’t rule out the Motor City. Detroit came out way ahead in all of our criteria, with only 3 major disaster declarations and four total declarations from the Federal Emergency Management Agency during the last 10 years. Detroit’s position on the Detroit River regulates extreme weather patterns and also subjects it to colder temperatures. When there are weather ‘events,’ the most likely are hail – still only 1 in every 4 of them – and flooding (also 1 in 4). Both are products of occasionally intense spring and summer thunderstorms. Detroit residents may have several concerns, but natural disasters don’t top the list!
