We're in a very boring area where it comes to natural disasters.

We get a huge number of tornadoes every year, apparently - but they're
tiny and seldom do any damage (one damaged a couple of roofs a few years

The biggest earthquake I remember rattled the plates in the kitchen.

We're not on a flood plain or even near a river.
