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:
