Most Dangerous Places to Live

San Francisco, California, USA
The San Francisco tectonic plates run a length of 810 miles through California. The fault motion is in horizontal motion. It forms the tectonic boundary between the North American Plate and the Pacific Plate.
This town, is highly populated with 13,216,221Residents. All of the buildings are close together, and also they are so high up. the Metropolis is located on the edge of three plates. They do have some volcanic activity close to them, and also they have had really bad earthquakes before, one killing 142,000 people that day. The housing has become mainly made with earthquakes in mind.
It has been about ninety years since a huge earthquake happened. Which may mean that its leading up to a huge burst of energy. Causing maybe a 9.0 magnitude, this would be insane, since it would cause loads of damage towards the city, and may even cause a tsunami, since it is quite close to an ocean.
In that statement. I conclude that Tokyo, is one of most dangerous places to live in thoughts of earthquakes and seismic shocks. Besides, the community there is very safe with a crime rate 1.4 Murders per 100,000 People. It is quite safe there and there was even reports of losing a wallet and getting it back in an hour or too, with every-single yen that was left in it. So In deduction, Tokyo is a quite safe place, if there wasn’t any earthquakes, but with the earthquakes. It makes it one of the worst places to live.
