Saffir-Simpson scale

A rating scale used by hurricane forecasters based on the hurricane's present intensity. The hurricane's wind speed is the determining factor in the scale, with category five having the highest and most damaging wind speed and category one having the lowest and least damaging wind speed. This scale provides an indicator of the potential property damage (PD) and flooding expected along the coast from a hurricane landfall.
