According to an April 2019 analysis conducted by Redfin, Austin is ranked 5th in a list of the 50 most hazardous U.S. metro areas, right behind Los Angeles, New York City and Washington D.C. We live in a town that tops the list of cities most frequented by fires, floods, tornadoes, earthquakes, and hurricanes. Since 2009, the greater Austin area has seen more large disasters than in the last 100 years combined.
