I agree that the annual Hurricane season is a lot worse than the less frequent earthquakes in SoCal, but the last big one was much less than a century ago. Northridge was huge (I was raised in socal), and it brought about as much damage as say Hurricane Andrew (it's not Katrina, but Katrina's a bit special).

Id take a hurricane that I can see coming to an earthquake

Id take SoFla. Not for Miami, but the FL keys are amazing.

Yea, but you're also taking hurricanes that are far more frequent and longer lasting. It doesn't seem like a particularly great trade.

I'd take my chances with a hurricane. Evacuation is always an option. Not with an earthquake

Humidity/heat in S.FL=awful. I'll take SoCal, thank you.

Forget the hurricanes. I would take my chances with an earthquake over this brutal HEAT and HUMIDITY.
