natural disasters are not something that will keep me from moving a place b/c pretty much every corner of this country has them. I don't expect the threat of hurricanes to substantially affect my life just like the threat of wildfires and earthquakes in CA has not either.

And you can expect a few replies when someone posts something along the lines of "Texas would assuredly be ahead of California beaches and things are just nicer over here.", especially in a thread about CA vs. FL beaches and not CA vs TX beaches; I don't even get why TX was even brought up at all in the first place.

We do not. We have blue "hurricane evacuation route" signs, but we have almost zero risk of earthquakes within hundreds of miles and thus an extremely low chance of tsunami.

No problem at all. If you have any other questions please ask as I actually enjoy it. Every time I go out to CA they ask me all of these questions about the roaches, beaches, hurricanes, etc .
