Part 1: Tropical Storms and Hurricanes 1) a) The point where Hurricane Andrew was at its’ maximum wind speed was at 175 mph and had a minimum central pressure of 922. These values occurred on August 23, 1992 7 days after the tropical depression formed. b) The point where Hurricane Mitch was at its’ maximum wind speed was at 180 mph and had a minimum central pressure of 910. These values occurred on October, 26, 1998 4 days after the tropical depression formed. c) Before it reached its maximum strength Hurricane Andrew moved approximately 1592.8 km latitudinal and 3,996 km longitudinal. Before it reached its maximum strength Hurricane Mitch moved approximately 694.7 km latitudinal and 767 km longitudinal d) Strong Winds determines the intensity of a hurricane.The intensity of a tropical cyclone is measured by the highest sustained wind speed found within it. Once it becomes a hurricane, the relative strength of that hurricane is also measured on a scale based on its greatest wind speed. This scale is named the Saffir-Simpson scale for the men who invented it. 2)
