Conejos currently ranks as the third “safest” county in the country when it comes to property insurance claims from natural disasters and by 2050 it is expected to move up to second under a severe climate change scenario, predicts CoreLogic, a real estate data analysis firm. Of the 10 U.S. counties that CoreLogic expects will be the “safest places to live in the U.S. for natural disasters” by 2050, half are located in Colorado.
Surprisingly, heavily forested Summit County comes in as the third safest place by 2050, with Eagle, San Juan and Chaffee counties holding spots 8 to 10.
