An occasional tornado but We are in prime Hurricane territory. I remember Hurricane Hugo very well. And though few realize it Charleston, South Carolina sits on an earthquake fault. The last major one in the 1880s prompted a cable from Queen Victoria to the President of the United States offering condolences on the destruction of the city. (They say we're overdue as well!)

Earthquakes. But I've been here 49 years and have only experienced 2 or 3 that were at all memorable.

Thankfully...none. I live in a pretty moderate area. No earthquakes, tornados, or hurricanes around here. Some years we have less rainfall than needed and wter conservation is always an issue but I don't think that counts.

Earthquakes and volcanoes would be the biggest one here, but minor flooding in some areas are more common. Occasionally we get twisters in the form of water spouts, but that's nothing hazardous. Of course if or rather when Mt. Rainier goes up, the lahars would be the real danger, but that's mostly a threat to those in the valley on the other side of the hill from where I live.

Those that live closer to the coast from where I am also have to contend with the tsunami threat.
