Yup. We also have this thing called mine subsidence where shafts from mining activities 100+ years ago collapse. Sometimes they release toxins in the air, sometimes in the water. Sometimes, because of the growth since then that has expanded outward into areas previously uninhabited, these collapses swallow houses, not unlike sink holes in FL. We also have an underground coal seam fire that has been burning since 1859.

Oh, lets not forget our proximity to the Yellowstone Super Volcano, although when that one goes, no where in the US will be safe so I'd rather die in the first day from the super heated air and toxic gas.

How long do you want to live?
Every place has some risk over the long term.
I chose New Mexico but it is very dry, we have rattlesnakes but I've never seen one, forest fires in the mountains most years, a few cases of bubonic plague, risk of sun stroke of skin cancer, rumors of crime but that's overblown, spiders, nasty centipedes, scorpions, and tumbleweed stampedes. Apart from that it is almost perfect. A Chinese space station could fall on you.

Oh also I'd like it to be approximately 70 degrees year round

I'm mostly kidding but only kindof.

Help me decide where to move!

I am looking for something with milder seasons, a family town, decent Real Estate since that's my job, nice people, good schools, not massively densely populated (like 1500 per sq foot is cool with me),..

Whatcha got???
I'd hate to tell you , but when the sky falls, it falls everywhere. You're doomed.

Or a bunker, you can find those out on the Great Planes.

The human body's cooling systems do not function well in high humidity.

How about Hawaii? Buy a place high up in the hills to reduce tsunami risk. Hurricanes are rare. Your only major death threat might be Kim Jong Un!

It's not, actually quite the opposite versus oppressively dry climates. Just too many delicate flowers apparently that can't handle it for some reason.
