Hurricane Categories, Explained

It doesn’t matter if a storm is on its way or not, being educated about the different types of hurricanes is always a good idea. Watching the local news and seeing all of the threats blooming out at sea, it’s important to be knowledgeable about the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale, which assigns a number to every storm that reaches hurricane status. This number will help you prepare for the level of damage that is expected to occur, thus helping to keep you and your family as safe as possible.

So, when it comes to the level of destruction each hurricane category carries with it, here are the hurricane categories, explained.
