Why some areas are more vulnerable to hazards than others?

    Because there is so much variance in the Earth, including different geology, weather, climate and vegetation, there are also different levels of vulnerability. For example, living on a fault line greatly increases likelihood of exposure to earthquakes. Most places are vulnerable to a potential threat. Low laying areas experience floods, while dry areas may experience threat from fire or drought. Air temperature and patterns create specific paths for hurricanes, tornadoes, thunderstorms and blizzards. Some areas share common threats all over, such as all coastlines being at risk from increasing sea levels.
