Natural Disaster Hot Zones

0


Hurricanes, floods, tornadoes, earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions - it seems there's no end to the hazards that threaten to befall us. What areas are most at risk of experiencing a natural disaster? By looking at a region's history of disasters,  fault lines and underground magma the io9 team has compiled a map of the world's hot zones. Much to my relief the area that I call home around the Great Lakes in Canada looks relatively risk-free.

Did anyone else notice that the site says you have to "Click the map to embiggen."? It's a very cromulant choice of word, if i do say so myself.

That ice storm was wicked. I couldn't believe the number of trees that were destroyed. Here in Niagara it was warmer and we just got a lot of rain.

We rarely have natural disasters here in Montreal. Except that Ice Storm of '98, of course.

I was really spooked this summer when we had a really minor earthquake.
