We had a Red Cross presentation at my school last week, and among the materials provided to us was a hazard map produced by the US Geological Survey and the American Red Cross.
Unable to duplicate it, since I do not own a camera, I searched for the map for a couple of hours on the internet, before admitting defeat.
It was a map of all 50 states, showing where tsunamis, volcanos, earthquakes, wildfires, tornadoes, and hurricanes, and/or any combination of the above are most likely to occur.
(A really cool, if somewhat unsettling map!)
I am sad to report from studying that map that there is not one "safe" state in the US which has no threat from a natural disaster of one type or another.
Many states are at threat from multiple disasters!
Take my home state of Florida, for example. It made the list for both tornadoes and hurricanes.
Flooding, thunderstorms and lightning, and extreme winter storms were not even included!
Here's another hazard map, showing the multiple issues facing every state and region of the United States. (Apparently, the spread of infectious disease, and economic issues are potential problems everywhere, in today's world.)
This was an interesting map, showing the deadliest natural or man-made disasters in history, state-by-state.
My point here is that, as affiliate marketers, making our living on the internet, we can work anywhere we wish. We are not restricted to a specific geographical location.
But, after perusing these hazard maps...Where do we go??
We weren't even considering nuclear reactor sites, for goodness sakes! (Meltdown, anyone?)
And, of course, Heaven forbid, in the event of a zombie apocalypse...
At least part of our country would have a chance to survive the brain-eating living dead!
For the rest of us, the predictions are dire, indeed...
So, facing the difficult decision to have to relocate outside the US, my question to my friends here from around the globe is this:
Is there a place, anywhere on Earth, where we can go to live and work, and be free of threats from all natural disasters, potential meltdowns from nuclear reactors, and with a reasonable probability of survival if or when the zombie apocalypse finally hits?
I'm open to suggestions!
