Top Ten Worst States In the U.S. To Be In When a Hurricane Hits

The Top Ten
1 Florida Florida is a state located in the southeastern region of the United States. Florida is the southeasternmost U.S. state, with the Atlantic on one side and the Gulf of Mexico on the other.

The only reason why Louisiana is number 1 is because of hurricane katrina, a bunch of hurricanes devastated Florida, like hurricane Irma, Andrew, Matthew...

Matthew hit florida and other states too.-KyokoKuchisakeSuccubi

Katrina, Charley, Remnants of Erika, etc.

This is very true.

2 Texas Texas is a state in the Southern USA. It is the second largest by area and population. Its largest city is Houston.
3 Louisiana

Hurricane Katrina was a hurricane that impacted New Orleans. The city was flooded, and I hope to see what hurricanes look like in the future.

Well this lost depends on what magnitude

Mississippi did get worst

4 North Carolina North Carolina is a state in the southeastern region of the United States. The state borders South Carolina and Georgia to the south, Tennessee to the west, Virginia to the north, and the Atlantic Ocean to the east.

Hurricane Sandy hit north Carolina too

7 New Jersey New Jersey is a state in the northeastern and mid-Atlantic regions of the United States. It is bordered on the north and east by New York, on the southeast and south by the Atlantic Ocean, on the west by Pennsylvania, and on the southwest by Delaware.

High population density will make harder to evacuate before storm...

One word: Sandy

8 Arkansas Arkansas is a state located in the Southeastern region of the United States. Its name is of Siouan derivation, denoting the Quapaw Indians.
9 Alabama Alabama is a state located in the southeastern region of the United States. It is bordered by Tennessee to the north, Georgia to the east, Florida and the Gulf of Mexico to the south, and Mississippi to the west.
10 Mississippi Mississippi is a southern U.S. state with the Mississippi River to its west, the state of Alabama to its east, and the Gulf of Mexico to the south.

I SWEAR EVERYONE SAYS THAT STUPID NEW ORLEANS GOT THE WORST PART OF KATRINA, BUT IT WAS Mississippi! THE WORST PART OF THE HURRICANE IS THE EAST PART AROUND THE EYE AND THAT IS WHAT Mississippi GOT! NEW ORLEANS DID NOT GET THE WORST OF IT! THEY'RE JUST DUMB HIPPIES THAT DON'T KNOW ANYTHING!
