Wow, my score on that one was an un-natural disaster. Surprised the Maldives and Tuvalu aren't on it if sea level rise is considered. Was sure Indonesia and Bangladesh would be up there, as there are always reports of catastrophes there. I guessed Saudi Arabia as a "Most" candidate based on drought because of the desert, and it came up as a "Least"!

Interesting that Iceland is among the least dangerous despite being one of the most volcanically active.

This was so random, I typed so many countries before even getting one right. So strange that there are Caribbean countries on both sides. I thought that Iceland would have volcanic eruptions, earthquakes and avalanches.

I thought so, too. Checking the source, the list seems much more focused on measuring infrastructure and disaster preparedness than exposure to natural disasters per se. The omission of countries with the most deaths from natural disasters in absolute and per capita terms (e.g., Haiti) seems odd.
