Natural Disaster Risk

You’ve seen the news – Dallas, Texas has been hit hard by major tornado activity.

I can’t say I’m surprised, because about this time last year the New York Times published my rankings of Natural Disaster Risk.

And my top pick of the 379 metros areas in the United States?  Yes, Dallas.

Check out the link to the story.  The New York Times creates beautiful and insightful infographics.

I hope this all this tornado activity and unseasonably warm weather isn’t a precursor to a summer of extreme weather.  Meanwhile, I’ll hunker down here in the soggy Northwest, and feel lucky that the most we usually suffer from are unrelenting gray days and drizzle.
