Deaths Caused by Natural Disasters in the US

Via Yahoo:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Heat is more likely to kill an American than an earthquake, and thunderstorms kill more than hurricanes do, according to a "death map" published on Tuesday.

Researchers who compiled the county-by-county look at what natural disasters kill Americans said they hope their study will help emergency preparedness officials plan better.

This is definitely worth a look.  It will help you see what the most likely natural disasters are in your area, or an area you'll be visiting, and assist you in preparing accordingly.

We cannot prevent natural disasters. That is why to have ourselves be ready for them is securing our lives.
