Rock and a hard place

Which are worse:

Tornadoes or hurricanes?

Monthly comparison
of hurricane and tornado 

Tornadoes strike with little warning and leave you little safe haven to hide. Not to mention they strike every year, too.

Florida hasn't had a hurricane make landfall since 2005.

But what really sticks out in my mind is this:

Hurricanes weaken over land compared to tornadoes which top out at full strength over the flat expanse of the Great Plains.

Tidal surge not withstanding, hurricanes seem like the safer bet.
