Although the Atlantic Ocean does not get anywhere near as many tsunamis as the Pacific, there is a real danger for very occasional truly major ones. Also, the northwestern Atlantic Ocean frequently gets these things called 'hurricanes'. As for the USA's east coast region, yes, there are many more people, the distances between them are fairly short and it isn't all that hard nor time-consuming to get around, but highway tolls are a KILLER!
Seems to me the Third Coast is getting short changed here!

Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
From Kelly's Heroes (1970)

No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
Broke parts take a little longer, though.
From Electric Horseman (1979)
I thought that the Arctic Ocean coast was the USA's 'Third' coast....

Ain't no party like a west coast party cause a west coast party don't stop. Reason enough for me.
