Mother Nature’s Danger Zones for Massachusetts homes

We’re constantly hearing about major hurricanes in Florida, devastating earthquakes in California, and crazy tornadoes in the Midwest.

But we didn’t know that large portions of Massachusetts – i.e. Worcester and Middlesex counties – are actually among the most risky areas of the country in terms of natural disasters destroying homes via hurricanes, tornados and earthquakes, etc., according to Realty Trac.

It appears major snow blizzards are included in the risk factors. OK, we can understand that. But central Massachusetts is more risky than the Cape or Islands? Now that’s surprising. And the Cape has Great White Sharks too!

Btw: Alabama, Georgia and Mississippi have the riskiest areas.
