But there are other possible natural disasters, that can result in catastrophic damage and loss of life. Floods, hurricanes, and tornados can all wreak havoc, and occur far more often than earthquakes and tidal waves. There are also other parts of the US that have had major earthquakes in the past, and a strong possibility of future big ones, too.
