Re: Least hit ?



What area of Florida is hit the least by hurricanes, north, south, etc. ? We think it could be North Central but we're not sure. Thanks.

Assuming your question is related to historical hurricane threat, I think the Jacksonville/First Coast area has been the least impacted historically of any location in Florida. Look at a map for why---the curve in the coast from Cape Canaveral north past Savannah tends to isolate this coast from the typical hurricane path.

If you are wanting to relocate to Florida and looking for a safe spot, the Jax-St. Augustine area is about as good as they come, plus since Jax cleaned up its act a few years ago, it's maybe the most livable metro area in the state by a lot of measures.
