Saffir Simpson is a classification of tropical cyclones, in five categories, based on measured wind speed and used to estimate potential damage. The Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale (SSHS for short) was developed in 1969 by Herbert Saffir and Bob Simpson, a former director of the US National Hurricane Center, on studies of the effects of hurricanes, specifically hurricane Camille, and from 1972 onwards officially launched by the National Hurricane Center.[1]
