# Wind speeds are sometimes given in knots (nautical miles per hour) instead of statute miles per hour. A nautical mile (used mainly by sailors and pilots) equals 6,080 feet, slightly longer than a statute mile at 5,280 feet. Being longer than a statute mile, a knot is a little faster than one mile per hour. The conversion from miles per hour to knots is: Knots = mph × 1.151 Using Table 6.2, convert the ranges of wind speeds for hurricane categories 1 through 5 from miles per hour to knots.
