 Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale

THE SAFFIR–SIMPSON HURRICANE SCALE IS A CLASSIFICATION USED FOR SOME WESTERN HEMISPHERE TROPICAL CYCLONES THAT EXCEED THE INTENSITIES OF TROPICAL DEPRESSIONS AND TROPICAL STORMS. THE SCALE DIVIDES HURRICANES INTO FIVE CATEGORIES DISTINGUISHED BY THE INTENSITIES OF THEIR SUSTAINED WINDS. IN ORDER TO BE CLASSIFIED AS A HURRICANE, A TROPICAL CYCLONE MUST HAVE MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS OF AT LEAST 74 MPH (33 M/S); 74 MPH (64 KN; 119 KM/H). THE HIGHEST CLASSIFICATION IN THE SCALE, CATEGORY 5, IS RESERVED FOR STORMS WITH WINDS EXCEEDING 155 MPH (69 M/S); 155 MPH (135 KN; 249 KM/H)

These Weather Forecasts have no official status and should not be used for emergency response decision making under any circumstances. 

While tropical weather can produce extremely powerful hurricane force winds and torrential rain, they are also able to produce high waves and damaging storm surge as well as spawning tornadoes. They develop over large bodies of warm water, and lose their strength if they move over land due to increased surface friction and loss of the warm ocean as an energy source. This is why coastal regions can receive significant damage from a tropical storm, while inland regions are relatively safe from receiving strong winds. Heavy rains, however, can produce significant flooding inland, and storm surges can produce extensive coastal flooding up to 40 kilometers (25 mi) from the coastline.

The tropical cyclone data presented at this site are intended to convey only general information on current storms and must not be used to make life or death decisions or decisions relating to the protection of property: the data may not be accurate. If you are in the path of a storm you should be listening to official information sources.
