​WASHINGTON – Plano took the number three spot on WalletHub's rankings of 2019's safest cities in America, trailing only Columbia, Md., and Yonkers, N.Y.

The Collin County city ranked second in home and community safety, 44th in financial safety, and 113th in natural disaster risk. 

No. 17 Laredo, No. 23 Brownsville, No. 36 Irving, and No. 39 Grand Prairie also made the top 25 percent of the 180 cities WalletHub analyzed. 

Brownsville and No. 63 Corpus Christi were second and third in lowest natural disaster risk, respectively. Brownsville, however, had the fifth-highest unemployment rate. 

Brownsville and Laredo had the two highest percentages of uninsured residents. No. 157 Dallas and No. 126 Houston ranked fourth and fifth in that metric, respectively. 

Earlier this year, WalletHub ranked Plano as the fourth-best city for families and the sixth-most relaxed city.
