About Hurricane, UT

Hurricane (pronounced /hɜrɨkən/) is a city in Washington County, Utah. Its population was 8,250 at the 2000 U.S. Census. Along with several other areas of southwestern Utah, the Hurricane area has seen a large population growth since the 1970s, and it has blended in with neighboring city of St. George, Utah.

Hurricane received its name after a whirlwind blew the top off of a buggy that Erastus Snow was riding in. Snow exclaimed, "Well, that was a Hurricane. We'll name this 'Hurricane Hill'."

Hurricane was first settled in 1896. Excerpted from Wikipedia
