INTENSE HURRICANES IN THE U.S. 19001996 site.
 Using the graphs you made in the "Get Info" section, determine the
approximate maximum sustained wind speed of the following hurricanes.
 Camille (#2) = miles per hour
 Donna (#6) = miles per hour
 Opal (#16) = miles per hour
 Allen (#18) = miles per hour
 Connie (#59) = miles per hour
 Using the graphs you made in the "Get Info" section, determine the
approximate storm tide of the following hurricanes.
 Camille (#2) = feet
 Donna (#6) = feet
 Opan (#16) = feet
 Allen (#18) = feet
 Connie (#59) = feet
 What difference does the timing of the tide make on the damage done
by a hurricane?
 Describe the types of damage that would happen if a hurricane with
an intensity of 3 on the SaffirSimpson Scale hit your city.
