Good luck with your search!
I recommend you open up a FREE listingbook acct at http://www.leecountyrealtor.listingbook.com - This will allow you to access to public side of the MLS (multiple listing service) where you can search all of the active homes for sale regardless of which real estate office has the property listed. When you find a property you would like more information on, there is a link that sends you straight to that communityâ€™s information and demographics.
Feel free to email me or give me a call if I can be of further assistance.

There have been others. Cape Coral's web site even has a web site on hurricanes. See http://whatsupcapecoral.com/hurricaneinfo.asp
And here's a link to YouTube Videos on Hurricane Charley: http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=57968A053B65E536
So while I'm sure that Cape Coral gets fewer hurricanes than areas on the east coast, you'll still have a chance of being hit.
Not too many hurricanes in California. But you might get an earthquake.
Not too many hurricanes in Minnesota. But you'll get plenty of snow.
OK. Somewhat more seriously . . .
Any place in Florida is going to be susceptible to hurricanes. In fact the whole area from Texas and Louisiana (remember Katrina) up around Florida at least to the Carolinas will get some. I live in Virginia, and while actual hurricanes are rare, we end up with some pretty big storms as the remnants of the hurricanes come over.
There's a really neat site at http://csc-s-maps-q.csc.noaa.gov/hurricanes/ that lets you plot hurricanes by zip code, name of hurricane, etc.
And here's a static map that shows the paths of all tropical storms: http://photos.mongabay.com/06/1107nasa2.jpg From that, it looks like you might want to consider Oregon, or North or South Dakota.
Hope that helps.
As for hurricanes, between 1960 and 2004, there were no hurricanes to hit this area of Florida. The west coast is not as much as target as the east coast of Florida.
