About Hurricane City, Utah

Hurricane is a city in Washington County, Utah. It lies approximately 3,200 feet in elevation, and is located in the extreme southwest corner of Utah - near both the Arizona and Nevada borders.

Hurricane is nestled in the Hurricane Valley along with two other towns, LaVerkin and Toquerville. Services available locally include grocery stores such as WalMart, hardware stores, banking, a pharmacy, natural foods, churches, medical access with urgent care, plus so much more.

Cafés and fast food are available in Hurricane, but when the local spots aren't enough, residents utilize the nearby city of St. George for further shopping, entertainment and dining services. St. George is located about a 25 minute drive south west, along I-15. This beautiful city is 

First settled in 1896, Hurricane allegedly received its name after a strong wind blew the top off a buggy in which Erastus Snow was riding. Snow exclaimed, "Well, that was a Hurricane. We'll name this Hurricane Hill!". It’s most likely named for the Hurricane Fault that runs along the city’s northeast edge - but, either way, the city is aptly named!

Hurricane is pronounced "Her-ah-kun" by the local residents, mimicking the accent of early Liverpudlian settlers. Like many areas of southwestern Utah, such as St. George, the Hurricane area has undergone large population growth since the 1970s.

Several Washington County School District Schools serve Hurricane including two elementary schools, an intermediate school, a middle school and Hurricane High School.
