What is your area prone to if anything in the way of natural disastors?

Portland had a slight 3.2 quake this a.m but hardly anyone felt it according to a news poll. We are in the midst of a big rain storm with some power outages and downed trees. A few places without electricty which is par for the course this time of year.

We are still waiting for "The Big One."

I've had a few tornados in my town. A few were pretty intense with damage and one time a little girl died

Right up there with you-I live in Washington so we see the same weather patterns/natural disasters as you.

San Antonio/central Texas - severe Thunderstorms and rare small tornadoes, but biggest threat is flash flooding.
