Hurricane /ˈhɜrɨkən/ is a city in Washington County, Utah and is a part of the St. George Metropolitan Area. Hurricane was first settled in 1896, and received its name after a whirlwind blew the top off of a buggy that Erastus Snow was riding in. Snow exclaimed, "Well, that was a Hurricane. We'll name this 'Hurricane Hill'."

Hurricane; which is pronounced 'Hur-kan" by local residents, is on the far eastern edge of Washington County, UT. The town still operates a large peach and apricot orchard for the LDS Church, and is historically known for growing; peaches, pecans, pistachio nuts as well as small farms.
