Now...where else can I move in the USA that isn't going to kill me from either hurricanes, humidity, alligators and pythons on the loose, tornado zones, fires, earthquakes, radioactive water, radiation, etc...

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???

The interior south-east or the south-west is probably your best bet. Although either way you're still going to have some of the stuff you listed. Just avoid the Atlantic coast, the fart west and any where north of 40 degrees latitude.

Eliminating humidity leaves you with very few choices.

Anywhere in Arizona. Its not so humid, but it gets hot six months of the year. Otherwise California.

California has earthquakes and fires. Two things OP doesn't seem to want to deal with.

Right, but no perfect place and he can find niches to minimize the risk. To avoid fires don't live directly in the hills (instead live in valleys). Earthquakes are tricky, but you'll generally be okay if you live away from water, dwell in earthquake safer buildings, and don't live in an overly urban area. But as I also stated, Arizona.

And you can't live life in fear. The chance of an earthquake badly affecting your life is pretty slim. I agree with avoiding fire risky areas.

The least disaster-prone areas are not 70 degrees year-round, mainly in the Great Lakes and Northeastern US.

Western NY outside of the cities. The state has a ban on drilling which has helped to preserve the water quality. Very little chance of natural disasters. Low humidity.

Something like 12 people died when 7 feet of snow hit the southtowns of Buffalo in November 2014. Note my location. I know that WNY does well on 'susceptibility to natural disaster' rankings but I don't see why debilitating snowstorms shouldn't qualify as 'natural disasters'
