BOSTON (WHDH) - Massachusetts’ two most populated cities rank among the 100 safest cities in America, according to a new WalletHub study.

The personal finance website released its 2019 “Safest Cities in America” list, which included Worcester and Boston.

Worcester checked in at 26th on the list, earning a top 50 ranking in categories including “home and community safety” and “natural disaster risk.”

Boston came in at 99th on the list, ranking inside the top 10 for “financial safety.”

Nashua, New Hampshire, earned an eighth-place ranking on the list.
