Title: The Saffir-Simpson Scale
Concept: The 5 categories/levels of wind intensity for tropical cyclones.
Detail: There is a distinct life cycle for tropical disturbances. They often begin as small thunderstorms, then gradually become more organized into what is called a tropical depression as pressures begin to drop. As circulation develops, and wind speed increases to 39+ miles per hour, it may then be designated as a "tropical storm" and given a name. Hurricane force implies sustained winds of >74 mph. In 1979, the Saffir-Simpson tropical cyclone intensity scale was introduced. Category 4 and especially Category 5 storms are very rare. Only three storms have struck the US coastline while rated at Category 5. It should be remembered that here we are referring to sustained two-minute winds. Gusts in a hurricane wind can range from 25 to even 50 percent higher than the average velocity.
