Hurricane City Background
Though most likely named for the Hurricane Fault that runs along the city’s northeast edge, Mormon legend reports that Hurricane was named by pioneer Erastus Snow when the area’s unruly wind gusts ripped the top off of his buggy during a visit. Either way, the city is aptly named.
The city’s population estimate as of 2008 is just over 13,000, but Hurricane is nestled in the Hurricane Valley along with two other towns, LaVerkin and Toquerville. Altogether, the valley population is nearly 20,000.
