160 kilometers per hour is about one-and-one-third times as fast as a Hurricane
In other words, the speed of a Hurricane is 0.7460 times that amount.
(formally: Topical cyclone; a.k.a. typhoon)
A hurricane is defined by the US National Hurricane Center as a Northern Hemisphere tropical storm having one-minute average wind-speeds of at least 119 kph. Typhoons Tip (October, 1979) and Keith (October, 1997) and Hurricanes Camille (August, 1969) and Allen (August, 1980) jointly hold the record for highest tropical storm wind speeds at 310 kph (192.63 mph).
