  1. Surprised that Christchurch, New Zealand didn’t at least appear in honourable mentions. Three devastating earthquakes in the space of 10 months and some 7 years later the city is still not rebuilt.

  2. My family and I live in Los Angeles for 9 years and we didn’t experience any earthquakes before

  3. Well, not a stretch to predict my home city of New Orleans to be here… let’s see.

    Edit; well, ok then

  4. I’m a little surprised that New Orleans wasn’t mentioned anywhere. It’s a city below sea level next to the sea! It’s home to the costliest storm damage in United States history!

  5. Any state inside Tornado Alley. IDK why I just find Tornadoes to be more terrifying right next to earthquakes. Earthquakes being more so since you never fucking know when it will happen.
