I'll scratch "no earthquakes" off the list of benefits for the east
coast over the west coast. ;)
A very early blogger buddy of mine owned a stake, for a while, in a colo in
Knoxville TN, which was, they said, out of *all* the hazard planes: too
far inland for hurricanes, not in the tornado belt,

Knoxville might not be in the "tornado belt" but it definitely gets tornadoes:

Significant-damage-causing earthquakes in California are a once-every-30-to-100-years type of event for any given location. You need to build and plan for them, but they don't occur with anywhere near the same frequency as tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, ice storms, etc. Plus, you don't have to deal with hours or days of warnings, or false warnings (as is often the case with hurricanes, which may change course, after hours or days of warning people "in the path" who end up entirely unscathed). Just get prepared, stay prepared, know what to do if^W when it happens.
