Lab 5: Hurricanes Last Modified 12/17/2008 Key Concepts: multiple selection, logical operators, branch coverage and boundary testing Meteorologists use a system called the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale to classify hurricanes. For maximum sustained wind speeds measured in miles/hour, the categories of hurricanes, tropical storms, and tropical depressions are (data retrieved from Wikipedia link on 7/17/2008): Classification Wind Speeds (mph) Category 5 Hurricane 156 or greater Category 4 Hurricane 131-155
