Waynesboro ranked #5 on list of safest weather cities in Virginia
The Old Dominion can handle its fair share of severe weather. In 2004, Virginia experienced high winds, flooding, and tornadoes resulting from six hurricanes – Hurricane Alex, Hurricane Charley, Hurricane Gaston, Hurricane Frances, Hurricane Ivan, and Hurricane Jeanne – that struck over a two-month period.
Hurricane Gaston hit Richmond, causing a major flash flood and killing eight people. After that, 13 tornadoes were produced, ripping through the state and resulting in about $130 million in damage.
HomeownersInsurance.com researchers decided to take a look at occurrences of flood, wind, lightning, and hail to determine the cities in Virginia that are the safest from severe weather.
Manassas Park ranked #1 overall, with Waynesboro at #5, with a lightning score of zero and one of the lowest hail scores overall. Harrisonburg was #6, with one of the lowest hail scores and a lightning score of zero.
Among other cities on the list were Staunton at #7 and Charlottesville at #10.
