Tropical Depression Peter Discussion Number 14
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL

AL162021
1100 PM AST Tue Sep 21 2021

The last visible satellite images of Peter this evening indicated
that its low-level center was losing definition and becoming even
more elongated. Earlier, new bursts of convection associated with
Peter had become oriented along a northeast to southwest axis, a
possible sign that Peter may no longer have a well-defined center
and could be opening up into a trough. But the estimated center
position is now obscured by convective debris, and without recent
scatterometer data to prove otherwise, Peter is maintained as a
sheared tropical depression for this advisory. The initial intensity

Tropical Depression Rose Discussion Number 12
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL

AL172021
1100 PM AST Tue Sep 21 2021

Strong northwesterly shear has continued to take a toll on Rose
this evening with the remaining deep convection becoming further
separated from the low-level center. Unfortunately Rose fell
within the gaps of the ASCAT satellite instruments this evening, so
there has been no recent scatterometer data. Dvorak T-numbers from
TAFB and SAB have continued to decline, and these subjective
estimates support lowering Rose's initial intensity to 30 kt. The
environment ahead of the cyclone is expected to remain quite
hostile with moderate westerly to northwesterly shear and a dry
mid-level atmosp...

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.
