From 2009 the Hong Kong Observatory started to further divide typhoons into three different classifications: typhoon, severe typhoon and super typhoon.A typhoon has wind speed of 64-79 knots (73-91 mph; 118–149 km/h), a severe typhoon has winds of at least 80 knots (92 mph; 150 km/h), and a super typhoon has winds of at least 100 knots (120 mph; 190 km/h).The United States' Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) unofficially classifies typhoons with wind speeds of at least 130 knots (67 m/s; 150 mph; 241 km/h)—the equivalent of a strong Category 4 storm in the Saffir-Simpson scale—as super typhoons. However, the maximum sustained wind speed measurements that the JTWC uses are based on a 1-minute averaging period, akin to the U.S.' National Hurricane Center and Central Pacific Hurricane Center. As a result, the JTWC's wind reports are higher than JMA's measurements, as the latter are based on a 10-minute averaging interval.

Florida preps for mass evacuations, braces for possible gridlock
Updated 5:09 PM ET, Wed September 6, 2017


Based on Irma's projected path, which includes Florida's heavily populated eastern coast, the enormous storm could create one of the largest mass evacuations in US history, CNN senior meteorologist Dave Hennen said. Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties combined have about 6 million people

Hopefully we have military/aircraft ready to lift people off blocked roads.

These evacs don't go well unless people start now. Texas takes the water front first and move the zone inward.

Rita years back here was a disaster of an evac.

People reporting gas shortages already. At a time when evacuations are ordered.

It’s easy to find out if your home is in an evacuation zone by entering your ZIP Code on a Miami-Dade map. Residents who live near the shoreline and some inland areas — all of zone A and parts of zone B — were told Wednesday evening they should leave.
