Looks like I more or less am in a relatively safe place here in southeastern Utah. Though it seems I'm always looking for a little safer place.

Morgan, I feel Utah where you are is safer than a lot of places...you aren't near oceans or large bodies of water.
It may take more research to know for sure..
All The Best,
Yowbarb

Morgan, a P.S. here is the seismicity map of Utah. Things could change in the future but the map shows, for now the southeast corner of Utah is not a seismic zone. - Yowbarb

also think of level compared to sea level, volcanoes, and quality fresh water. Earthquakes do suck, but theirs more then just that to consider, I'd figure Utah may do well as there r several communities off the main grid down there, and most of the folks r not as dependent on tech.

True in Nevada and Utah you will find alternative living, domes, communes and probably quite a few people looking to form up groups. People will have to know how to get wells put in and so on...
All The Best,

Personally I prefer high ground to bunkers but i may change my mind depending on the atmosphere, i just worry about underground places in events of plenty of seismic activity :(

There are problems to sort out with underground structures but it is the only way to be safe from wind, solar etc.
Any underground structure would need to be really well reinforced. Ventilation plus some innovative ideas on how to deal with earth or smoke etc. which may get into system. Some simple manual ways to clean it out from inside the bunker. Takes some thought. Another thing I posted a couple times in other topics: Have a big digging tool inside the bunker and battery operated if necessary. People should be prepared to dig out. All I know is very few structures will survive above ground. The dome designs I keep seeing are not adequate. Bear in mind that the Church dome which survived Katrina had few windows. Those windows were really thick plastic, recessed into the structure. Walls need to be thick, monolithic structure reinforced. IMHO at aleast part of the dome should have earth bermed over it. Also - steel cables set into the concrete underneath, for an additional strengthening...
I know this is not THE dome topic  ;) but anyway...wanted to mention that. Image is the Church which survived Katrina, Biloxi MS.

After Katrina
 
Somewhere between 24 to 36 hours after Katrina made landfall, Pastor Jeff Ulmer of New Life Family Church returned to the 150-foot diameter dome church to assess damages.
 
After finding the building to be structurally sound, he quickly opened church doors to relief workers. New Life is located just two blocks from the beach in Biloxi, Mississippi and is now serving as a shelter for Relief Workers.
 
The 20-year old Monolithic Dome did receive cosmetic damage. The Airform was sheared off the dome, but according to the official FEMA inspection, the dome is structurally sound.
 
The main concern for any buildings left standing is mold. Due to power outages and excessive moisture, all buildings are susceptible to mold growth at this time. Church Administrator Holly Wilson wasn’t complaining though. She said, “The dome is the second tallest building still standing in Biloxi.”
