The top five types of hurricanes in the Atlantic Ocean have a maximum sustained wind speed of at least 157 miles per hour (252 kilometers per hour).

On Saturday, the National Hurricane Center of the United States called Lorenzo the "strongest hurricane in the waters of northeast the Atlantic".


NASA (NASA) and NASA (NOAA) followed the storm with infrared cameras from the Suomi NPP satellite.

On Monday, NASA said in a press release that Lorenzo reached five winds at a distance of 600 miles (966 kilometers) from the last record.


Over the weekend, Colorado state meteorologist Philip Klotzbach said in a tweet that Laurenzo (Lorenzo) broke Hugo (Hugoric Hugo) 's 1989 category five hurricane record.

Since then, it has weakened to a 2 level storm, but the energy of the hurricane is still strong, which is expected to have an impact on this week.


The rapid growth of Lorenz to Category 5 has attracted close attention from all walks of life, especially thinking about how climate change affects storm patterns.

In August this year, NOAA combed this year's research and concluded that the intensity of tropical cyclones may increase with global warming.

According to NASA, previous record years of Category 5 hurricanes included 1932, 1933, 1961, 2005, 2007, and 2017 (now 2019).
