Cities Most at Risk From Mother Nature

Is your city safe? According to SustainLane, a website that ranks the top 50 American cities based on their natural disaster risks, Miami is the place most likely to feel the wrath of Mother Nature. They, with help from Risk Management Solutions (RMS) look at a city’s risk from hurricanes, major flooding, catastrophic hail, tornado super-outbreaks, and earthquakes.

According to the site:

Cities at Greatest Risk

Based on these criteria, the cities with the greatest natural disaster risk are Miami (#50), which is sited on a peninsula between two prolific hurricane zones; New Orleans (#49); Oakland (#48), which straddles the Hayward Earthquake Fault; San Francisco (#47), on the San Andreas Fault and at risk for tsunamis; Honolulu (#46), subject to hurricanes, storm surge flooding, and tsunamis; and San Jose (#45), which is also near the San Andreas Fault.
