Haha, ya I'd agree with that, Highway 4x4. I'd simply stay away from those problematic areas of the country during those problematic times of the year. My "territory" of travel is ~Rocky Mountain Front to the west coast, and move with the seasons north to south.
And as suggested in posts above, watch weather forecasts religiously, daily. If it looks like serious weather will be a disrupter in a few days, being aware of where the weather system is coming from and where it's going to, one can easily hitch up the house and move out of the path. Part of the beauty of RVing.

In So Cal we have that dreaded "earthquake season". It can hit with no warning.

I have been to the west coast twice and have to admit the scenery is beautiful. Not so easy when you are not a full-timer and your base is in Ohio :-) guess getting there is half the enjoyment though!

1. We have a hand held CB with the emergency weather channel.
2. Always be aware of the nearest, secure shelter.
3. Other than pulling the plug on your RV, just leave it. It can be replaced.

I have a portable Weather Radio I bought at radio shack. It gives off alert tone if sever weather is threatening . It's similar to this one but, my model has been discontinued I think. Or, at least I don't see it doing a quick search.

As for the west coast idea. I suppose you do get away from the weather but, the earthquakes / volcanos / and crime , maybe make it a wash in the end.
