Local Natural Disasters

Growing up in California, I’ve experienced several earthquakes when I was younger, then when I was in Japan, we had earthquakes and typhoons, and now in Texas, we have severe thunderstorms and tornadoes. I’m wondering what places don’t have much extreme weather. Maybe the Scandinavian countries are relatively free from natural disasters, but I personally think anywhere that gets snow on the ground for more than a week is too extreme for me. 😆

How about South American countries? Do they have hurricanes or earthquakes? I have no idea…

Anyways, we had a powerful storm blow through, with lightning, hail, and even a tornado in the area. Luckily, our neighborhood only experienced high winds and heavy rain… but it’s always a bit scary when the weatherman says, “Now’s the time for you to go to your safe space.” 😨

I hope you had a nice-weather day!


One thought on “Local Natural Disasters

  1. South America definitely similar with earthquakes, storms, hurricanes, flooding, etc. Scandinavian countries get bad storms, esp finally winter storms, sometimes. Iceland has an occasional volcano eruption. There’s definitely something everywhere. A good reminder of how powerful this earth is.

    Stay safe,
