Common Natural Disasters in the USA are:
Hurricanes are tropical storms similar to tornadoes. Tropical storms form hurricanes, thats why they hit cities and states located on the coasts by the ocean. Wisconsin is a state in the midwest far away from oceans.
Green Bay, Wisconsin isn’t in tornado ally. In fact Green Bay rarely experience tornados. The 4 times Green Bay has had a tornado in the last 48 years caused little damage and were on the outskirts of town. Our datacenter is located on the east side city of Green Bay.
Earthquakes are caused by a sudden release of energy. This burst of energy is cause by two plate tectonics after they release the tension that built up. Green Bay isn’t located on any plate tectonics.
Flooding rarely happens in Green Bay. When we designed our datacenter we made sure it wasn’t in the basement. That way if we did get the rare and occasional flooding our datacenter wouldn’t be affected.
