I've lived in Santa Clara, CA for 9 years and there have only been minor earthquakes - no damage. A couple of good windy rainstorms, but no major damage.

In Ohio we have a rare tornado, occasional blizzards and one or two yearly derechos. Floods also occur from time to time.

Pretty much any or the mentioned natural disasters are possible in Kentucky for the exception of hurricanes. Tornadoes seem to be the most devastating disaster that occurs here. Kentucky also sits on the border of the New Madrid Fault Line so southwestern Kentucky will eventually have a severe earthquake. Sometimes flooding is a issue here as well.

Tsunami of liberals here in St. Paul. That city on the other side of the river is full of them.

Very seldomly, hurricane force winds and urban flooding from torrential summer rains. The latter phenomenon, torrential, convective summer rain is very new.

Wildfires and earthquakes in Los Angeles, though we haven't had a major earthquake since the Northridge in 1994.

Nothing severe in Milwaukee. Some flooding during big downpours, but it's usually basement issues or big puddles on the road/lawn. Tornados aren't a concern in the city itself or anywhere along Lake Michigan on the Wisconsin side. No earthquakes or hurricanes, though there is a fault over near St Louis that was mentioned above - I've never even felt a tremor in my lifetime, though. No poisonous snakes or spiders or bear or really any animal worries in the area. Blizzards?

Phoenix... err... Haboobs? Does the heat count?

Arizona really misses out on terrible natural disasters that other states get. Northern Arizona gets a ton of wildfires but that's about it.

Last weekend Tucson got an earthquake. I believe it was like a 5.2 or something, don't quote me on that. Anyway, that's extremely rare for Arizona.

Louisville

Flooding: both Ohio River floods (only a problem every few decades), and flash floods, especially in the flood plain

Tornadoes: City and urban areas across the river in Indiana were hit by several tornadoes in the late 1800s and early 1990s that combined killed over 200 people.

Earthquakes: major earthquake occurred when the area was sparsely populated in the early 1800s. New Madrid fault could give way again
