  1. Yep. When I was a kid, we had to ride out Hurricane Frederick in Mobile, AL. It wasn’t a huge storm, but it was a wild ride. After that, I don’t think I’d ever stay through one again. And with our frequency of being in New Orleans and Mississippi, I’m acutely aware of the devastation that can happen. 13 years later, and things still aren’t back to normal. Wouldn’t wish that on my worst enemy.

      • It was rocking and rolling and we called it land surfing. When I got outside when the shaking stopped, I saw the program’s big passenger van still bouncing all four wheels off the ground. We had 19 kids there, most of them from the SF Bay area, all worried about family, specially one girl whose mother would have been heading home from work about that time across the Bay Bridge which was reported to have partly collapsed. Of course the phones and power were out for days. I didn’t get home for three days because other staff were unable to get in and the main roads between Watsonville and Santa Cruz were damaged.

  2. Although it can get very hot here in the desert (105-110 degrees in the summer), thankfully no. Some parts of town get flooded here but nothing like Hurricane Harvey or Katrina. We have sunshine around 300 days out of the year. I would not do well in a city where it rains or snows a lot. Lol.

  3. Yes, an earthquake three years ago but it was a very mild one. I was in school (class 8) when all the desks and chairs started shaking. It was the first time we experienced a natural disaster, all my classmates got so excited that we termed it as an ‘adventure’. We even got to go home early so all of us thought that we should have these kind of ‘adventures’ once in a while. We were dumb!

  4. I live in Florida so hurricanes and tornadoes are a common occurrence. In our 23 years here we’ve evacuated once and have had flooding from two hurricanes that didn’t reach our house but made it impossible to get out of our neighborhood for a few days. Still, I haven’t had to shovel snow.

  5. I’ve been lucky. I’ve been through hurricane’s but we were so far inland, it was just downpours and once I had to call off work because I wasn’t driving in it. Several years ago, my home in NY was hit bad by a hurricane. The willow tree that I grew up with was uprooted and some minor damage. They had no power for a bit.

  6. Yes, I was born and raised in Florida so I’ve gone through hurricane Andrew in the 90’s all the way through hurricanes Charlie and Wilma that devastated Southwest Florida. We never evacuated and have been without power for over 10 days. To survive, you prepare the best you can, say a prepare and bunker down. It’s terrible! I hope soon God’s Kingdom will rid this world f natural disasters like these (Mark 4:37-41, Revelation 21:3,4).
