I live in the city, and assume disasters happen to people who don't live here because they're dirty, disgusting, bad people. Yes we have storms, typhoons they're called, the bad ones batter the city with winds that would barely make the news in more relevant nations. It's not an issue. It stops the trains from running due to trees falling on the tracks, but that's all I know or care about because who cares what happens to the roads and houses of the great unwashed who don't live in cities. For completeness, I'll point out the obvious fact that the underground trains continue service even under those weather conditions-- too bad that's of no help to the farmers who lost their crops or the townspeople whose houses were destroyed.
