During a hurricane, many people think of Florida as not safe anywhere, well, a new study concludes that is false.

Many inland cities are actually quite safe from a storm based off of geographical location and amount of well built structures.

HomeInsurance.com has ranked Florida’s cities based on their evaluation of NOAA-identified storms from 1965 to October 2014, doling out scores based on the number of storm events, number of storm-related deaths, property damage and storm-related injuries.

Here’s a list of the top 10 safest cities in Florida to weather a hurricane.

Notice, 5 of the cities are located in central/north central Florida.

Leesburg
Orlando
Sanford
Kissimmee
Palatka
Lake City
Naples
Ocala
Gainesville
Fernandina Beach
