Does the weather situation in California make you feel nervous about living on the West Coast?

I live on the West Coast, and I'm not too worried about it. I'd honestly be more nervous living on the East Coast because of the hurricanes.

I think being in the PNW helps a bit because we don't get the coastal storm systems, but climate change is going to impact everyone in some way. We don't get the flooding, but the fires seem to have gotten worse in the last decade. At least we have fairly moderate temps (most of the time.)

Ummm not really because that's not something that's normal in California especially southern California.

I would be more nervous about living somewhere like Florida honestly. The West Coast usually has great weather.
