For me it's an EF5 tornado, nothing more terrifying than having a beast like that chase you down and rip you out of the ground.
I live almost on top of the New Madrid fault so an earthquake there would pretty much end me and everyone I know. In terms of event most likely to strike, flash flooding definitely.
Definitely with you on this. I live near Portland, OR and we're anticipating a gigantic earthquake that scientists have been predicting for some time, one that's rumored to hit and take out most of the city. It's been acknowledged by local government, but the attitude is essentially, "Enh, what can you do?"
I sometimes wake up in the middle of the night, for no reason, terrified that I felt shaking.
Yeah that's pretty much my view on it. If I'm not mistaken someone estimated that the big one at the New Madrid here would kill 100k people immediately then displace millions more after that...and we all know it. But because it hasn't happened in 200 years we just sort of forget. Maybe I should move :\
Speaking of waking up and thinking you feel shaking, it happened to me a couple of days ago. So weird!
are the buildings there that poorly built or something?
Those things can rip your life out the ground with no remorse!
Being stuck in a volcano eruption area being chased and surrounded by lava like in Dante's Peak I know it's extremely unrealistic, but it does happen.
Shiit, that's a good one. Completely forgot about that movie, should rewatch it.
Yeah, I have to say that when I was taking a bus tour around Sakurajima I was feeling nervous after hearing that the volcano usually has an eruption every day or so, but hadn't had one in a few days. I have a nice picture of cloud plume from the centre of Kagoshima. We arrived at Kagoshima shopping district and were just walking around when I started poking my GF and pointing to the skyline. Amusing thing was that my friend and his soon to be wife (as in the next day) were on the volcano at the same time as the event.
Probably a flash flood or something along the lines of the Japan Tsunami... Drowning freaks me right out, being sweapt away by a wall of water is even scarier.
I've gone through the opposite, sort of. 2010 Queensland Floods. I've seen pictures of flooding in a major city near where I grew up, but I'd never been in one. Brisbane isn't a city that you would expect to flood, nor would you expect the areas hit to be flooded either. The scary part was my commute to and from work put me in the path of the water as it came down from Toowoomba. I remember seeing news crosses showing the major road that I travelled daily totally under water, here is the McDonalds I drive by.
Anyhow, where I live we were fairly safe, water level was getting close, but the loss of power and isolation was terrifying. The news said that it was over, but what if it wasn't. What if the water went up a few more feet.. I don't think I'm scared of a certain type of weather, just the isolation that comes with an event like that. The worst thing of all was the loss of power and conservation of phone battery to make sure we had some form of communication.

Fun thing happened while watching the news during the floods this plane is on top of a roof more as a sign (and it's opposite the McDonalds I posted about before). It was just above the waterline and when the news helicopters were surveying the damage, they had to tell viewers that it wasn't a plane floating away (airport is near this area). - All in all, not an amusing thing to live through, and it really makes you dislike the media organisations as some didn't want to help those stranded, just wanted to take footage.
I understand that reporting helicopters may not be equipped to help, but if you are going to report on a thing of this magnitude, have some sort of backup plan if you see someone needing assistance. I think this was the flood where they left someone to come back for them with help and when they got back they couldn't find the person.
That would be my second choice and is why I never lived along the coast line or rivers.
Avalanche. I've read that if you ever get stuck you can't move an inch and don't even know up from down. I have minor claustrophobia so that adds a ton of extra fear.
Those suck... unless youre a rabbit
I'd have to agree with you. I'm not sure if you've seen it or not but I posted this close encounter video a while back.
Yeah I remember this post. I would have freaked right out.
Tornadoes are bad but extreme blizzards with extreme cold for me are the worst.
Yea me too in Ohio and no power for 3 days!
Sounded like an adventure waiting to happen, would have even given you a chance to build that igloo they talk about so much about us Canadians living in :) On a serious note, yeah I don't doubt it was scary as hell.
