500 AM EDT Fri Oct 07 2022

The structure of the depression has not changed much this morning.
Based on surface observations and radar data from Curacao, it
appears the center of the system has passed south of Aruba and moved
over the far northern Gulf of Venezuela. The deepest convection is
still confined to the southern and western portions of the
circulation. There has been a slight increase in convection well to
the north of the center during the past several hours, but it lacks
organization at this time. Unfortunately, the center of the
depression was not sampled by overnight ASCAT data swaths. Recent

The Saffir-Simpson Scale

The Saffir-Simpson Scale is the scale used to measure the intensity of hurricanes. It has 5 categories with a category 5 being the strongest and most destructive marked by sustained winds exceeding 157mph.

Saffir-Simpson Scale | Hurricane Season 2017

Category 1 - Sustained winds 74-95mph
Very dangerous winds will produce some damage: Well-constructed frame homes could have damage to roof, shingles, vinyl siding and gutters. Large branches of trees will snap and shallowly rooted trees may be toppled. Extensive damage to power lines and poles likely will result in power outages that could last a few to several days.

Category 2 - Sustained winds 96-110mph
Extremely dangerous winds will cause extensive damage: Well-constructed frame homes could sustain major roof and siding damage. Many shallowly rooted trees will be snapped or uprooted and block numerous roads. Near-total power loss is expected with outages that could last from several days to weeks.

Category 3 - Sustained winds 111-129mph
Devastating damage will occur: Well-built framed homes may incur major damage or removal of roof decking and gable ends. Many trees will be snapped or uprooted, blocking numerous roads. Electricity and water will be unavailable for several days to weeks after the storm passes.

Category 4 - Sustained winds 130-156mph
Catastrophic damage will occur: Well-built framed homes can sustain severe damage with loss of most of the roof structure and/or some exterior walls. Most trees will be snapped or uprooted and power poles downed. Fallen trees and power poles will isolate residential areas. Power outages will last weeks to possibly months. Most of the area will be uninhabitable for weeks or months.

Category 5 - Sustained winds 157mph+
Catastrophic damage will occur: A high percentage of framed homes will be destroyed, with total roof failure and wall collapse. Fallen trees and power poles will isolate residential areas. Power outages will last for weeks to possibly months. Most of the area will be uninhabitable for weeks or months.
