Hurricane is a city in Washington County, Utah, United States. The population was 8,250 at the 2000 census. Hurricane has seen tremendous population growth along with many other areas of southwest Utah since the 1970s and has blended into neighboring St. George. The town's name is traditionally pronounced IPA: /ˈhʌrɨkən/ "HUR ih kun", (the emphasis of the first syllable and the pronunciation of the last two syllables resemble the British pronunciation of the word "hurricane") by many of its residents. However, newer residents often pronounce it as the usual American pronunciation of the word ("hur ih KANE"). Hurricane received its name after a whirlwind blew the top off a buggy Erastus Snow was riding in. Snow exclaimed, "Well, that was a Hurricane. We'll name this Hurricane Hill." (from wikipedia)
