As you can see, mortality ratios due to natural hazards are lower in the western United States (California) than the southeastern United States (Florida).



In terms of California, severe earthquakes are few and far between, and less damaging, unlike hurricanes. And most of the fires, besides the recent 2007 fires (san diego county and parts of LA county), are fought in state park regions and other natural areas rather than urban areas, unlike hurricanes that affect all regions. The fires were at the fringes of the metros.

CA natural disasters have been seriously exaggerated in some of these posts. The news media just hypes them more, simply because it is California.
The damage from fires, mudslides & earthquakes combined probably come nowhere near the damage of the hurricanes & tornadoes in other areas of the US.

I know the news/media lies so you dont have to educate me on that...but I just don't understand why they would say a fire is still burning when its not.The media has an agenda but I doubt there is some conspiracy against California..but its all good and your right you do live there.

SoCal very easily! South Florida is nice, but too humid, too flat, and too hurricane-prone for me.
