Hurricane Features

  • What is the Saffir-Simpson Wind Scale?

    The Saffir-Simpson Wind Scale is a categorical classification of hurricanes based on their wind speed, used by the U.S. government's National Hurricane Center.

  • Atlantic Category 5 Storms

    To qualify as a Category 5 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson hurricane intensity scale, maximum sustained winds must exceed 155 mph (135 kt).

  • Retired Hurricane Names

    Hurricanes that have a severe impact on lives or the economy are remembered by generations after the devastation they caused, and some go into weather history.

  • Download Hurricane Tracking Maps

    AccuWeather.com has created a number of specialty maps designed for tracking the progress of tropical storms and hurricanes. Use these maps in conjunction with our Hurricane Position graphic, as well as statements issued by the NHC with storm positions.

  • When and Where Do Hurricanes Occur?

    Hurricanes (by whatever name) are by far most common in the Pacific Ocean, with the western Pacific being most active. In some years, the Philippines are struck by more than 20 tropical storms and typhoons.
