NC... Whats your geographic risk assessment?

<< < (2/2)

I live nearby a huge chemical plant called Corning.  They make glass for computers and cell phones, glass for cooking on, fiber optics, and damn near everything else.  Along with that there is a railroad that comes by every so often carrying damn near everything, and not to mention I live within 30 minutes of downtown Charlotte and 12 miles from Concord.  So my risk assessment has brought me to a panic a few times.

As far as a geographic risk, the only thing I have to worry about is part of my back yard is on a 100 year flood plane.  But there is a huge hill my house sits on so if it floods enough to get up here, we have much more problems.

Puget Sound:  earthquake, volcano, flooding, wind, riots (HUGH risk of that!)
