Would you move your family to Oklahoma City if you knew you would loose your home every 5 or 10 years? Logic would say, no, but many live in the "Perfect Storm" areas. I guess tragedy is a drawing card for Oklahoma folks. But again, logic would tell me it is time to move out of there, well that's my opinion.

Many of us loose our homes in the states that flood every year, on the coast many of the homes slide into the sea,,,,,is it a " I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed" thing with folks ....

Sliding into the sea is a risk of living by the sea. There's an upside to the risk.

NO east coast OR west coast garbage to put up with. I guess they like it there. No different than living on a active fault line.

All 3 of my kids, and grand kids, live here. I'm down on Lake Texoma for 3 weeks .. thankfully the devastation, (thankfully for me and mine that is), is centered farther north. I t has indeed been a rough 2 weeks down here, but it seems the threat is over for now, the cold front pushed on east.

Millions of us live on a fault line, or close to it. New Madrid is indeed an active fault, and WILL let loose soon, according to geological records. And those of us living mostly southwest of Yellowstone are at peril also.

The earth is truly dynamic, adapt and adjust, or perish.

There are few places where there are no worries, in fact, there are none. Some areas have fewer issues but all have some.

That is why we live were we do. No active fault lines, no hurricanes. Few blizzards, no floods. Not TOO hot very often and seldom too cold. We do get tornadoes, mainly small ones. Too bad it's near Detroit and Toledo. All of our problems are people caused.

You have the danger of Michigan roads.

Of course, it's way too hot there in the summer, but spring comes early.
But the main reason is the people are pretty normal. Normal stops about Detroit. Couldn't imagine living there or anywhere east of there because of the people. People in Oklahoma are normal, and traditional, biblical morality is relatively common.

My guess is it's the same reason most of us want to live where we do: because it's where our loved ones are, and it's home.
