  • Hurricane season - at least you get a notice that something is coming, unlike tornado alley where I live now.

  • I grew up in earthquake country, and now live in hurricane country! So my choice is hurricanes by a mile. Why? You get days if not weeks of notice, and you can evacuate! What notice do you get of an earthquake? None! I would definitely choose a few days of notice, and time to prepare my house and leave over bam! Your house is shaking and falling apart with you in it. :0)

  • Earthquakes 100%! Hurricanes scare me to death, probably because I've never been on one. But earthquakes are no big deal and are often over just as you are realizing you are having one. No biggie :)

  • Well, here in the Midwest we usually have neither. However if we do get an earthquake it has the ability to cover a much larger area and be much more devastating than it would out west.
