There are 5 different categories of hurricanes and they are based on how fast the winds are going. A category 1 hurricane has winds from 74-95 mph while a category 5 hurricane has winds from 156 mph and up. Here are a few examples of hurricanes; Hurricane Danny (1985, Category 1, winds at 80 mph), Hurricane Erin (1985, Category 2, winds at 100mph), Hurricane Katrina (2005, Category 3, winds at 120mph), The Great Galveston Hurricane (1990, Category 4 winds at 145mph), and finally Hurricane Andrew (1992, Category 5, winds at 165mph).
