Named the most dangerous district to live in the United States: it is located in California

Los Angeles County is the most life-threatening area in the United States, according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

FEMA has calculated the risk for each county in America for 18 types of natural disasters, including earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, volcanoes, and even tsunamis. The pandemic was not counted, but Los Angeles has been called the "epicenter" for the coronavirus.

FEMA found that Los Angeles ranks first on the National Risk Index of more than 3000 counties surveyed.

Often, this index highlights places that have long been known for their danger, such as the same Los Angeles. But a few other places are contrary to what most people think of them. For example, eastern cities like New York and Philadelphia have a much higher tornado risk than serial tornado stalwarts Oklahoma and Kansas.

And the county with the greatest risk of coastal flooding is in Washington State, which is not even on the ocean, although its river is tidal.

Calculations are made using an index that determines how often natural disasters occur, how many people and how much property are at risk, how socially vulnerable the population is, and how well the area can return to normal. This defines the risk, which estimates how serious the situation will be.

Los Angeles, as a dense urban environment, is a prime target. The FEMA 10 Riskiest Locations, besides Los Angeles, include three counties in the New York area - the Bronx, New York County (Manhattan) and Kings County (Brooklyn), as well as Miami, Philadelphia, Dallas, St. Louis and Riverside, and San Bernardino in California.

Loudon County, an outer suburb of Washington, DC, has the lowest risk, according to FEMA. Three other suburban Washington counties, along with the suburbs of Boston, Long Island, Detroit and Pittsburgh, are among the most risky of the larger counties.
