The National Weather Service classifies tropical storms as low pressure systems forming over tropical areas, with winds of a minimum of 40 mph. Hurricanes are classified by using the Saffir/Simpson intensity scale which measures atmospheric pressure in terms of millibars (mb) or inches of mercury, along with wind speeds, storm surge and damage:
