The No. 1 city in the U.S. least likely to be destroyed by a natural disaster is?
Tapping data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, U.S. Forest Service and FEMA’s National Flood Insurance Program, “MoneyWatch” compiled a list of the cities around the country with the lowest risk of being flooded, rocked by earthquakes, battered by hurricanes, struck with tornadoes or burned by wildfires. And that city is … SYRACUSE, N.Y.
Syracuse is located in a pocket of upstate New York that just doesn’t see much in the way of natural disasters. There’s little flooding, no wildfires, no hurricanes, no earthquakes and no tornadoes. The area was recently hit with heavy storms that caused some damage, but even then the National Weather Service debunked the idea of a tornado touching down.
