Typically, the Washington DC/Baltimore area's biggest disasters come from either derecho events (we had one just this June), the remnants of Hurricanes (Sandy just gave us some rain and some minor wind damage down here, but Agnes in 1972 had tremendous flooding), Winter Storms (Snowmaggedon was the most recent one), and occassionally a Tornado, though they tend to be weak.

Hurricanes
Tornadoes
Blizzards
Nor'Easters
Erosion
Earthquakes (minor)
Flooding

I think that covers most of it. Otherwise, it's a great place to live!

We have been drought conditions for several years. We started this year with water restrictions, and even though we have received more than our annual average rainfall we are still in Stage 2 water restrictions. SA residents will likely start 2013 with similar restrictions unless we receive significant rainfall between now and the first of the year. We have to sustain water levels for 30 consecutive days before restrictions are lifted. Its doubtful we will get the rainfall required to bring us out of stage 2, into stage one, then restriction free.

In Phoenix we have Monsoon season which usually has a ton of lightning, dust storms, and high winds. Other than that we just have EXTREME heat...in July and August it is between 110-118 a good portion of the days. And I don't want to see any rebuttals about "dry heat." When it is 118 degrees it doesn't matter how dry it is!!! It feels like your skin is melting! lol
