How dangerous is it to live in Oklahoma? See just how disaster-prone the Sooner State is
OKLAHOMA CITY — It is no surprise that Oklahoma is a dangerous place to live. After all, “Tornado Alley” isn’t a nickname that was given for the safe beautiful weather.
The Washington Post has broken down the amount of natural disasters in our great country and made interactive maps to show exactly how many fires, floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, and snow storms each state has.
From 1964 to 2013, Oklahoma County had 39 federally declared weather disasters. That makes Oklahoma the 4th most disaster-prone state in the country.
