Sure Seattle doesn't have much risk of weather-related disasters (tornadoes, hurricanes, etc.) But it also doesn't have uncomfortable/unpleasant weather. Its summers are arguably the best in the entire country with sun, low humidity, and upper 70's being the norm. And winter is more mild than any of the rest of the northern half of the country.
I agree that it is not actively uncomfortable, but a lot of people like moderate heat, and they are unhappy with a climate that doesn't have a hot summer.

Lol @ Seattle being unpleasant. I mean sure, they get rained on a lot during the winter, but then at this point I'd candidate my own city for having too many foggy days with heavy particle pollution during otherwise rather manageable winters.

Washington state apparently has a location that ranks as 8th foggiest in the world

8. Cape Disappointment - Washington
Located at the southwest corner of the state of Washington, Cape Disappointment is one of the foggiest regions in the United States. The cape experiences over 2,552 hours of fog annually which is approximately 106 foggy days.

Seattle is going to top this list for me. So is Fresno.

Please don't say Buffalo. People keep saying Buffalo has hardly any natural disasters. Yeah, like a blizzard is not a natural disaster.
A blizzard is certainly not a natural disaster. In a big city it can be extremely inconvenient if airport/highways are shut down but what long term damage is done to your property?

Ketchikan, Alaska doesn't suffer any disasters while also not subject to blizzards. Annual rainfall 155 inches and cool most of the year, so perhaps that could be considered uncomfortable/unpleasant.

Definitely Turpan unless droughts count as natural disasters. Thankfully summer humidity is low, and at least winters are sunny, but those winters are too long and way too cold!

Also, there's literally not even two-thirds of an inch of rain annually. Any crops have to be irrigated. At least there's an ancient irrigation system that supports some of the sweetest temperate fruit you'll ever eat!

I'd say somewhere like the Northwest coast of France. Always mild but too overcast and not enough sun. Summer doesn't feel like it most days and winter is stormy. It's not extreme in any way but just too maritime for my liking. The Western Coast of BC is similar. Mild but too much rain.

The winters are mild, hardly any snow, sure. But the fact that its winters are even gloomier than places like Chicago is a deal breaker.

Don't you get hurricanes and flooding?

How on Earth does a blizzard count as a natural disaster ?

I'm experiencing one, right this moment, in ND, so would appreciate some explanation as to what I am missing here.

All you need to do is to make sure you can comfortably survive in car for up to 36 hours at -20 C, once you run out of gas.

Surely, that's not a rocket science?
