Hurricane is a city in Washington County, Utah and is a part of the St. George Metropolitan Area. Its population was 13,748 at the 2010 U.S. Census. Along with several other areas of southwestern Utah, the Hurricane area has seen a large population growth since the 1970s, and it has blended in with neighboring St. George.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-a-kin" by local residents, is on the far eastern edge of Washington County, UT. The community was settled as part of LDS Church President Brigham Young's 'Cotton Mission', intended to establish the southern end of Utah for agricultural purposes. The town once operated 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. The town boasts multiple parks, a new dog park, a city pool and large community center, several ranked golf courses, two reservoir lakes noted for bass fishing (Sand Hollow Recreation Area and Quail Lake State Park), as well as a small municipal airfield. There are several medical clinics in the area.Shopping includes a single large grocer(Lin's), several national chain stores, fast food restaurants, family dining, elite sports related stores and an antiques mall.On the town's periphery there is; Walmart, Washington County Fair Grounds and Equestrian Center. Also; State DMV offices, Washington County Sheriff's Offices, Purgatory Correctional Facility and Dixie Area Juvenile Detention Center.On the south-east edge of town, known locally as 'the south fields', there is a subdivision of executive homes with a private landing strip, which allows commuting residents the luxury of taxi'ing to their home's private garage. Geographically, the town is less than 100 miles from the Grand Canyon (north rim) which makes it a popular destination for sport para-gliders.
