Countries with Fewest Natural Disasters

331 comments

2638014857_c1deb02782_o A view of Volcan Baru, the volcano that may erupt all over my organic coffee farm fantasy.

It’s interesting how the crisis in Japan coupled with the fear of impending doom of 2012 will cause people to reconsider living near a fault line or a volcano.

Even my husband, the biggest 2012 skeptic, emailed me an article about a place in Panama I really like, enlightening me about the volcano there that just happens to be “due for an eruption anytime.” (My guess is that he thinks the area is too expensive and is just using the volcano eruption to steer me toward a cheaper, flatter, area of the country. Ha!)

Tonight we were talking about places in the world that don’t seem to be as riddled with natural disasters, and what do you know, Slate.com compiled a list a few years ago.

In case you were wondering, here’s a list of countries in the world with the fewest natural disasters:

  • Estonia
  • Qatar
  • Bahrain
  • United Arab Emirates
  • Andorra

On second thought, I suppose I can face a hurricane or flash flood once in a while. Though it’s not the nicest idea enduring an emergency while living in an RV. (If you happen to be living in an RV, check out my tips for preparing for a disaster here.)

Want to take a guess about the safest states in the U.S.? There’s list for that, too.

  1. Rhode Island
  2. Utah
  3. Wyoming
  4. District of Columbia
  5. Delaware
  6. Connecticut
  7. South Carolina
  8. Colorado
  9. Nevada
  10. Montana

If you want to know which is the most dangerous state (with a whopping 84 disasters since 1953), just ask me where I happen to be at the moment.

It’s Texas.

Of course.

I wonder how the weather is in Rhode Island this time of year?
