Across the country, we have experienced some of the worst natural disasters in the last 60 days from tornadoes, flooding and wildfires.  I came across this article today and thought it might be of interest to some of us.

1Portland-Vancouver-Hillsboro, OR-WA
2Salt Lake City, UT
3Sacramento–Roseville–Arden-Arcade, CA
4San Francisco-Oakland-Hayward, CA
