Another take on the Saffir-Simpson hurricane wind scale
I don’t know why the Americans opted for a French name in their list of tropical cyclones this year, perhaps they have partnered up with Meteo France in another name that storm collaboration.

Scientists at NOAA’s National Hurricane Center conducted a detailed post-storm analysis on all the data available for Hurricane Michael and have determined that the storm’s estimated intensity at landfall was 140 knots (160 mph). This final wind intensity is a 5 knot (5 mph) increase over the operational estimate and...
