South: hurricanes.
West: tornadoes and (these days) all sorts of intense weather year round
West Coast: Between fires and earthquakes, the weather's fine (especially in the Northern areas if you really really like rain) or stay south for extended droughts.

Here, Long Island, NY, we have a small chance of hurricanes, warmer winters and cooler summers than would be expected (thanks to big bathtub called "Atlantic Ocean") and, if you don't count Superstorm Sandy (cough cough) then we don't flood as the water runs off our island into the sea.

So - I thought I'd want to move away to somewhere better - but it's really an endless trade-off.

Really - no place to hide - just a classic case of "pick your poison".
