Nowhere in Florida is truly "safe"....although inland is a bit safer...but it's still a crap shoot whether you will eventually get hit or NOT in what remains of your lifetime: Course: Map Interpretation and Analysis
If buying in Florida, what I would look for is a high enough elevation to avoid flooding and damage from storm surges and rising sea levels. Being inland a few miles can mitigate wind damage as hurricanes lose power as they hi land. No part of Florida is immune from hurricanes. It can be hit by Atlantic storms as well as gulf storms. As mentioned, hurricanes can spin off tornadoes which are much more destructive but affect much smaller areas.
Interactive Map for Sea Level Rise Impact to selected Coastal Cities (incl. Sarasota, FL) shows barrier islands (e.g. Siesta Key) being somewhat impacted with "only" 3-ft Rise...and seriously impacted at "only" 4-ft Rise [relative to current coastline]: https://ss2.climatecentral.org/#12/2...feet&pois=hide
As much as a 3-ft (nearly 1-meter) MEAN Sea Level Rise could occur by 2070 [incl. recent estimate for more rapid Antarctic melting]...or perhaps even SOONER, since recent data shows a more rapid increase....Max Levels during Hurricane Surge conditions would be even HIGHER: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sea_level_rise
BTW: The original Climate Change Study Reports were intentional in presenting overly CONSERVATIVE estimates [i.e. Firmly supported by incontrovertible FACTS]....ignoring several important factors since at the time they weren't able to ACCURATELY estimate their impact....such as the effect of MASSIVE amounts of Methane being released "soonish" as the Tundra Melts....and how FAST the Antarctic and Iceland would melt....which we NOW see is MUCH more rapid than originally estimated.
We ALL should be VERY CONCERNED....just take a look as the HUGE SPIKE in the Atmospheric CO2 Level CONTINUES to SKYROCKET [as measured at top of Mauna Loa in Hawaii]...and way too politicians poo-poo any plans to reduce and/or sequester Carbon Emissions: https://climate.nasa.gov/evidence
The last time CO2 was this high (before that chart starts,) the oceans were several meters above current levels and the earth was significantly hotter. It may take several centuries for the full effects to be seen and it may trigger a runaway effect as massive amounts of CO2 could be released from permafrost and other CO2 sinks. In the meantime, hurricanes and other weather extremes are likely to become much more severe. I won't be moving to Florida. It may not even exist in its current form 50 years from now. Parts of some low lying cities are already being flooded at low tide.
