What types of natural disasters does Austin, Texas get?
I am considering moving to Austin, Texas. I would like to know which natural disasters a person might be exposed to. Tornadoes? Hurricanes? Earthquake? Anything else?
Basically anything. They have tornadoes a few times a year. Hurricanes come up from the coast. I don't know about earthquakes though.
I lived in Austin for 6 years. There might have been some minor tornadoes, but nothing major. You can get rain and wind from hurricanes but nothing like being on the coast. No earthquakes that I was aware of.
The weather that most often affects people is flash flooding, which is a risk any time of the year when it rains. Fire is also a risk in the areas around Austin. A huge fire went through the Bastrop area last year.
Austin is a great city. I think you will love it.

I've seen comments by people saying to pray when there are natural disasters. Some also doing their 'end-time' rant. What use is prayer? How does it help any?
