If I were planning to relocate, I would have a difficult time with choosing to live in a state where mother nature has so much potential power to destroy. Having an exciting adventurous life is one thing, but experiencing a flattened home is another. Where I live here in Bisbee Az is so ideal.
It's pleasant day after day after day.
I just met some folks who live in Lakeland, Florida who have decided to move here because they have been threatened one too many times.
So, here is one place has been totally left alone ( except for summer thunder storms which are no big deal).

That sounds like a safe place. But with mother nature and the earthquakes out west, you just never know if you are safe anywhere.

Talking Madrid Fault Line

If anybody is not moving to Florida because of hurricanes then why would they want to move to, let's say to the midwest where there are TORNADOS, FLOODS, SNOW STORMS ETC.

How about California??? wild FIRES
They can happen out west in many of those states btw...

OK, now if buyers are concerned about the hurricanes, you can have them up along the whole East Coast
States: Georgia, S. Carolina, N. Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Delware, Jersey,
New York!!!!

Gulf Coast: New Orleans, Mississippi, Texas are a few states that can get hit.

Now at least with a HURRICANE we get notified way in advance of the storms approach.

With Earthquakes and Tornados there is no warning at all.

FLOODING: Who knew how bad Pa and NJ and NY and Maryland, West Virginia were going to get hit a month ago??? Homes were swept away in some parts.

A Tornado came through New York last week and demolished homes in Westchester.

So, if you are wondering about moving to Florida but are unsure about the hurricanes, remember this, bad weather happens everywhere
Just in Florida you have great weather almost 365 days a year
You forgot to mention the Madrid Fault Line in Tennessee one of the most active earth quake fault lines in the world

John, we've noticed that AZ has no bad weather, only a lot of summer high temps. It's probably not much warmer then other areas since you have no humidity. We've never been to Az. and wondered if you have plushness there? Do you have palm trees and flowers and grass or is it mainly cactii and barren desert?

Question Come to Florida!

Why? Because it still is a great place to be. Period. People are having hard times in alot of states with high taxes. New Jersey's taxes are crazy. So are New York's.
I know Massachusetts has very high taxes too. I hear they call it Taxachusetts there or Massataxes...
Come on, the Carolina's are going to get crowded too. Everybody is running from somewhere.
Do you think Florida is going to be a ghost town? I don't think so.
Yes the price of homes are higher than years before, taxes are going up.
But where do you ever here that taxes stay the same forever?
If you find a place like that, I wonder how great it is..
You could choose to move to a remote little town in Somewhere USA, but how long will it be before you run from there?
