Greetings From the Natural Disaster Capitol of the World!

According to this I live in the epicenter. I suppose that map was put together by the same folks who justify hour homeowner's insurance rates.

I find this odd because the maps below the main one only show our tornado risk on the low end of the moderate scale. Yes, we have droughts. And yep, it's windy. But we don't have earthquakes. We get few deadly tornadoes. By the time a hurricane reaches us, it's just a nice soaking rain. 

Now if you count the risk from wacky politicians... ;-)
