Physical locations

The National Weather Service defines a hurricane as "an intense tropical weather system with well-defined circulation and sustained winds of 74 mph (64 knots) or higher."

Hurricanes are rated according to intensity on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale.

The 1-5 scale estimates potential property damage.

A Category 3 or higher is considered a major hurricane.

The National Hurricane Center advises Preparedness:

A hurricane watch indicates the possibility that a region could experience hurricane conditions within 48 hours.

A hurricane warning indicates that tropical-storm-force winds of at least 74 mph are expected within 36 hours.

Predictions:
April 10, 2013 - Forecasters William Gray and Phil Klotzbach of Colorado State University release their 2013 hurricane season prediction. They predict 18 named storms and nine hurricanes, four of them major.

May 23, 2013 - The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration forecasts an active or extremely active hurricane season, predicting that there is a 70 percent chance of having 13 to 20 named storms, of which seven to 11 could become hurricanes, including three to six major hurricanes (categories 3-5).
