Texas Is The Most Dangerous State In The U.S. For Natural Disasters
The Lone Star State has the bragging rights to being “Number One” at a lot of things, live stock production and oil and natural gas are among them. If you’re curious, you can see a list of Texas’ “number ones” here.
While being number one is usually the ultimate ranking to attain, there’s a “number one” spot no one wants: the number one least safest state in which to live when it comes to natural disasters.
Given the land mass and the water on two borders, it makes sense that Texas is ranked the number one state least safe from natural disasters. But it doesn’t make it any easier for Texans to assume the heavy responsibility of being number one in natural disaster risks.
