FLORIDA — It's official, Florida is now considered the 3rd most dangerous state in America.

A recent WalletHub report lists Florida as the 48th safest state in the country — making it the 3rd most dangerous state, but it's not because of gators or flesh-eating bacteria.

Wallet Hub looked at five different kinds of safety: Personal & Residential Safety, Financial Safety, Road Safety, Workplace Safety, and Emergency Preparedness. For a full breakdown of the findings, click here.

Louisiana and Mississippi are the only two states with a worse safety score. Minnesota topped the list as the safest state.

Florida did however get a high score among states with the lowest bullying-incidence rate.
