Last year I did a Neighborhood Assessment. It covers natural and manmade disasters.
I gave it a score of 1-10. One (1) most likely would not occur but I wouldn't rule it out and ten (10) which has already occurred and more than likely will occur again. It's just a rough outline, so I thought I'd pass it on. Maybe it’s something to work with. Raise awareness of your surroundings. Some things you can reduce the risk, others you cannot. This is my neighborhood. You can do it for your neighborhood.
