Where you need to live to AVOID natural disasters

I found this article from LifeHacker - a DIY blog that I follow. It's definitely geared towards our American cousins, but a good reference altogether. See link above to get the full scoop - but here's a slice... sorry for the food metaphors, haven't had dinner yet.

More than 300 people were killed last week by monstrous storms that swept through the South. Flattened communities resembled scenes from war zones. “I have never seen devastation like this,” President Obama said Friday after visiting a neighborhood blown apart by a tornado in Tuscaloosa, Ala.

Unnerved by those violent storms? Or the prospect of an earthquake rumbling through California with the force of the one that devastated Japan? Or a hurricane as deadly as Katrinain 2005 battering an American coastline again?

  1. Are we safe in Canada? I feel Im safe where the wife and I live. Although we live extremely close to a Lake, we are on a hill way above the tree line at the top of a hill. unknowing to my wife, that was a standard when we bought. A place beside the lake would have been beautiful but would have gone against my nature to prep for the worst. We may be screwed if a tornado hits though due to being exposed to NW winds. Hope for the best, prepare for the worst...
