    What's YOUR region's natural disaster of choice?

    Well I'm in California, so earthquakes and brush fires for me.
    Goddamn Santa Ana winds. I have to pack up my laptop before I sleep just incase I have to evacuate in the middle of the night. (bigass fire inching along.)

    Bushfires. It's coming up to that time of year again; the months of haze and smoke when the sun turns red. Most of you guys get snowstorms for Christmas, I get burninations :p

    The worst we get here are icestorms, big nasty icestorms. Could be much worst.

    [EDIT] Moysturfurmer, I *do* hope that you weather the fires safely. Santa Anna's not withstanding, those things are scary as all hell.

    I *LOVE* the Santa Anna's winds. God, I miss them. They're not to blame for the fires, though they do fan them.

    I'm guessing you've got to living down near L.A. someplace if you're getting those. I used to live in the Ventura/Oxnard/Hueneme area.

    The Santa Anna's and the smell of the citrus in the early morning. Beh.

    Anyway, living up here in the North now, our distasters include, but are not limited to:

    Wind Storms (up 100mph+ at times)
    Earthquakes (Still part of the Ring of Fire)
    Tsunami (I'm assuming those Tsunami evacuation signs aren't there to attract the tourists....).
    Loggers
    Tourists
    Drug smuggling
    and stupid politicians...

    I think that about covers it.

    We don't have much earthquakes here in Sweden (just some very very small ones), but we recently had a nasty storm that took down a lot of forest (which is one of our national resources). Sometimes we get a meter or so of snow.

    We also have some man made disasters, like algae blooming and occasional radioactive fallout from russia (I couldn't eat anything from my garden that year).

    Here in New Jersey, I think our biggest disaster is too many cars... and out-of-staters that feel compelled to make comments about our car problem. We know, ok?


    Sometimes there's small-scale flooding, but nothing like what's been going on down south.

    qitsune beat me to it. But it's pretty tame around here. I'm just waiting for the water to rise tho... Growing in the mountains, I get a little skittish thinking we're only 23m above sea level.

    ICESTORM!

    Wake up one day, get outside your home and then you have to climb over trees and skate to the bus station. No wonder Canada is home of Hockey!

    BTW. Alot of that happened overnight!
    Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die.
