Los Angeles has been dealing with the news of coronavirus taking a stronghold on the city and county, and now FEMA has reportedly declared that Los Angeles County is the most dangerous place to live in the United States.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency noted the reasoning behind the declaration was due to Los Angeles County being so prone to natural disasters occurring. FEMA went into more detail on their website, saying: “The National Risk Index is a new, online mapping application from FEMA that identifies communities most at risk to 18 natural hazards. This application visualizes natural hazard risk metrics and includes data about expected annual losses, social vulnerabilities, and community resilience.”
The index reportedly focuses on natural disasters like earthquakes, floods, tornadoes, tsunamis, and more.
