    Here in Seattle, we've been told we're gonna fall into the Pacific since day one. Can't wait.

    What about areas with poor black people? Port-Au-Prince, Haiti? New Orleans? This list needs to be revised there’s some obvious bias. New Orleans is literally below sea level.

    Any state inside Tornado Alley. IDK why I just find Tornadoes to be more terrifying right next to earthquakes. Earthquakes being more so since you never fucking know when it will happen.

    I'm a little surprised that New Orleans wasn't mentioned anywhere. It's a city below sea level next to the sea! It's home to the costliest storm damage in United States history!

    Well, not a stretch to predict my home city of New Orleans to be here… let’s see.

    Edit; well, ok then

    My family and I live in Los Angeles for 9 years and we didn’t experience any earthquakes before

    Surprised that Christchurch, New Zealand didn’t at least appear in honourable mentions. Three devastating earthquakes in the space of 10 months and some 7 years later the city is still not rebuilt.

    People who build their homes under the sea level and wonder why they're flooded. People who "build their homes at the base of a volcano and wonder why there's lava in the living room" (Carlin)

    I am surprised they didn't include Oklahoma City, which is the most tornado prone city in the US.

    I’m surprised Port-Au-Prince, Hati wasn’t number one

    5:24 Guangzhou and Shenzhen are much more populous than Hong Kong so I guess she gave HK as an example because it is better known?

    What about Dhaka or Chittagong, Bangladesh?

    Flooding almost every year and prone to annual cyclones?
