According to both WorldAtlas and World Population Review, Michigan is the safest state in the United States of America when it comes to natural disasters.

Michigan is a state in the mid-western region of the United States. Data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and other sources show that Michigan, whose largest city is Detroit and is bordered by four of the Great Lakes, is ranked as one of the safest states in the US as it is shielded from natural catastrophes. In Michigan, the risk of hurricanes, tornadoes, or earthquakes is minimal. Even though the past has seen Michigan experiencing a few earthquakes and tornadoes, they were not as severe as other parts of the US...WorldAtlas

Sure, Michigan does have tornadoes and blizzards, but those aren't as bad as they can be in other parts of the country. I suppose we should all stop complaining about the weather and just be happy that we don't have to deal with earthquakes, hurricanes, and other craziness.
