Don't have a lot of fears being a big guy (6'3/250) but that is one contender I am not sure I want to face

Most of the tornadoes on the coast are water spouts that never touch ground (or water). It's very rare for a tornado to cause damage on the coast.

lol, I know. You are moving to Union Co. right? Well, then I don't think you should be TOO worried. According to that map, in 50 years, only 16 tornadoes have touched down and only killed one person. Odds are that person was doing something very stupid.
