I am considering moving to Florida.

What cities and regions of Florida rarely get hurricanes?

Northeastern Florida (Jacksonville area) doesn't get much in the way of hurricanes.

From about Cape Canaveral northwards. Statistically, JAX is overdue for a storm, while the Cocoa-Daytona area has seen more than it's (statistical) fair share of storms (2004-2005). So if I'm a gambling man, I'd go for the central east coast up to Daytona, but not as far north as JAX.

Truthfully, all of them. You would not think it to watch the news but direct hits by hurricanes are rare occurrences. I don't lay awake at night worrying about them. Having said that, you still want your property properly prepared. The biggest reason to stay out of the higher probably areas are the insurance rates.

Very true! Definitely stay away from South Florida, the Keys, and coastal Southwest Florida if you want reasonable (but still high) insurance rates.

NE Florida is the best place. Doesn't guarantee it couldn't happen but the odds are against a direct hit.

NE FL is just as vulnerable is Miami. They have been lucky and have not had a major storm hit in decades. New Orleans was lucky until Katrina came through. Miami was lucky until Andrew hit. It is all based on luck.

WRONG......

South East Florida is by far, more vulnerable of being hit by a hurriance than N.E. Florida....

Stike Probabiliy.....
Jacksonville 1 in 100
Miami 1 in 6
