Question ID: 586169
According to recorded weather history a class 5 hurricane is the biggest so the media says. How big is the biggest hurricane according to geology and anthropology? Specifically has the gulf of mexico seen a migration in maya culture because of a major hurricane preserved in the anthropologic and rock record that was pre recorded weather history and how big have these pre historical hurricanes been?? Perhaps what we would call a class twenty hurricane? Does the Smithsonian institute in Tuxtla and Papantla headed by Dr. Jeffrey Wilkerson profess there was a lost mayan city that was evacuated because of a massive hurricane?

check this out for an explaination of the scale http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/aboutsshs.shtml As you can see the scale is as follows: 74-95 mph cat 1 96-110 mph cat 2 111-130 mph cat 3 131-155 mph cat 4 155- or greater MPH Cat 5 So by definition there is no such thing as a cat 20 since everything above 156 mph is cat 5. That being said this scale averages about 20 mph per catagory, if we extrapolate that out to a cat 20, the wind speed woudl be in the range of 450-500 mph. to get that kind of speed you have to start talking about other planets. See: http://www.space.com/scienceastronomy/solarsystem/solar_system_weather_010306-1.html Finally here is a NOAA site that talks about the highest winds in a tropical cycolne http://www.aoml.noaa.gov/hrd/tcfaq/E1.html Hope that helps.
