Will Hurricane Igor Turn?

Hurricane Igor could develop into a category 5 hurricane with winds of up to 160 miles per hour.

Igor was at Category 4 strength with maximum sustained winds near 150 mph (240 kph). But the National Hurricane Center in Miami said Igor could reach Category 5 strength later in the day.

Igor was located about 940 miles (1,515 kilometers) east of the Northern Leeward Islands and was moving west near 13 mph (20 kph).

A turn toward the west-northwest was expected Monday night or Tuesday, the hurricane center said. – This is what we are waiting for…

The latest news says that Igor will pass to our North West, but viewers of Young Frankenstein know that Igor has a penchant for the abnormal.

This is a list of all recorded Atlantic hurricanes that have reached Category 5, the highest classification of tropical cyclone intensity on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale. Category 5 storms are the most catastrophic hurricanes that can form, and occur only about once every three years on average in the Atlantic basin. Only four times — in the 1960, 1961, 2005 and 2007 hurricane seasons — have multiple Category 5 hurricanes formed. Only in 2005 have more than two Category 5 storms formed, and only in 2007 has more than one made landfall at Category 5 strength.
