How well could your state handle a disaster?
In an infographic posted earlier this year, Foodstorage.com's "Prepper Feed" blog came up with a measure of each state's disaster-preparedness by analyzing the risks each state faces from different natural calamities and stacking that against each state's per-capita disaster budget.
As you might expect, those criteria led to a ranking system that favors lower-population, bigger-government states.
The worst-prepared state, according to the rankings: Texas, which faces threats from hurricanes, flooding and tornadoes but which has a fairly low per-capita disaster budget for its 26.5 million people.
Meanwhile, states with smaller populations fared much better: Wyoming, North Dakota and Delaware nabbed the top three spots.
