Are you finding all these tornadoes, earthquakes and floods a bit stressful? If so, the New York Times has a helpful graphic to ease your pain, Where to Live to Avoid a Natural Disaster:

The analysis below, by Sperling's Best Places, a publisher of city rankings, is an attempt to assess a combination of those risks in 379 American metro areas.

Risks for twisters and hurricanes (including storms from hurricane remnants) are based on historical data showing where storms occurred.

Additional hazards included in this analysis: flooding, drought, hail and other extreme weather.
