    I’m with you .. Tornado’s … we’ve had some teeny tiny ones, nothing like the midwest, and the destruction they caused is amazingly terrifying.   I’ve been thru blizzards and hurricanes but the tornado’s scare the crap out of me.

    Tsunami’s – They leave such widespread devastation/disease and when the surge goes out so many people think it is safe and venture out to the beach and WHAM! get swept away.

    I am weird and LOVE tornadoes. They are awe inspiring. I hate for people to lose everything or die but in unpopulated areas they are amazing.

    Storms scare me to begin with, and tornados are real fear here in the midwest!

    I would say tornados for the same reason! They are sooo fast and come out of no where. As for blizzard, being from WI I’m sort of used to them, and actually I get excited when I’m in a blizzard 🙂 weird….I know!

    Depends where I am.  I am an easterner living in California and while I am totally fine with earthquakes out west, they terrify me back east.  The buildings there just aren’t made for it.

    Tornados terrify me anywhere, probably because I’ve never lived through one.

    @MsBrewer: I love blizzards!!! February 2010 was awesome. Two 25″ blizzards in one week here in PA. It was awesome. 🙂

    Tsunamis for me.  I agree with the PP that they leave such widespread destruction and disease.

    I actually find tornados to be really neat (obviously I hate to see people killed by them or lose their homes though).  I just find them kind of majestic with all of their power.  Tornado watches don’t even phase me.

    They typically aren’t very large in Florida, but they always hit at like 2 am. I love storms, but something about one popping up in the middle of the night gives me the willies. 

    I love hurricanes…something about being able to watch the wind like that.

    For me personally, based on where I live, I voted for wild fires.  I know that seems strange, but I grew up in the country and every summer there were grassfires and at least twice that I remember, they came frighteningly close to our house.  Fire scares the crap out me, my biggest fear is losing my house to a fire.

    However, I am convinced we are due for a big earthquake in Northern CA and that scares me.  I try not to think about it and just be prepared for if/when it happens.

    Almost all of them! But especially earthquakes, tsunamis and tornados.

    I’ve been through some pretty big blizzards, those don’t scare me. You pretty much know they are coming — the others give no warning.
