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.
