 As a reminder, hurricanes are rated from 1 to 5 based on their intensity.  In general, the potential for damage rises by a factor of 4x for every category increase. The weather experts are forecasting up to four Category 3 hurricanes (like Sandy) this season, which can have wind speeds up to 129 mph.

We will be posting more about hurricanes every few days.
