We're Alive on the Death Map

At first glance, this map looks like it could be the breakdown from the last presidential election, but it is actually something far more sinister. Meet the death map! But it doesn't take all deaths into account -- just ones caused by natural hazards.

White represents the average, blue equals relatively safe, and red means dead. Surprisingly, even with the occasional strong hurricane and other crazy weather, South Florida is safely blue. So while there's a lot of things that can kill you in this town, natural hazards apparently shouldn't be at the top of your list of things to worry about.
