Category 3 and above are considered major hurricanes, but precautions should still be taken for Category 1 and Category 2 storms. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and Weather.gov have compiled the following information that explains how each storm category is defined and the type of damage to expect. less. Tropical Storm A tropical storm is a tropical cyclone with maximum sustained surface winds between 39-73 mph. Category 1: Sustained winds of 74-95 mph Very dangerous winds will produce some damage: Well-built homes can sustain damage to roof, shingles, vinyl siding and gutters. Large branches from trees will break and trees with shallow roots may fall. Severe damage to power lines and poles will likely result in power outages that may last from a few to several days. Category 2: 96-110 mph Very dangerous winds will cause significant damage: Well-built homes can sustain significant roof and siding damage. Many trees with shallow roots will be cut down or uprooted and many roads will be closed. An almost complete loss of power is expected, with outages that could last from several days to weeks. Category 3: 111-129 mph (major hurricane) Devastating damage will occur: Well-constructed frame homes may experience severe damage or removal of roof deck and gable ends. Many trees will be cut down or uprooted, blocking many roads. Electricity and water will not be available for several days to weeks after the storm passes. Category 4: 130-156 mph (major hurricane) Catastrophic damage will occur: Well-built frame homes can sustain significant damage with most of the roof structure and/or some exterior walls lost. Most trees will be snapped or uprooted and power poles will be down. Fallen trees and power poles will isolate residential areas. Power outages will last from weeks to months. Most of the area will be uninhabitable for weeks or months. Category 5: 157 mph or higher (major hurricane) Catastrophic damage will occur: A high percentage of framed homes will be destroyed, with complete roof failure and wall collapse. Fallen trees and power poles will isolate residential areas. Power outages will last for weeks, perhaps months. Most of the area will be uninhabitable for weeks or months.
