Calculating Hurricane strength -
The Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale system is a 1 to 5 rating system on a hurricane's current intensity. This is used to give an
estimate of the possible property damage and area flooding that may occur along the coast from where the hurricane landfall is. Wind speed is the determining
level factor in the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane scale.
