Hurricane Utah is a growing community located between St. George Utah and Zion National Park. Hurricane sits at the junction of roads that lead to Zion National Park, Grand Canyon National Park, Lake Powell and to St. George. 
The community has the most space for expansion of any city in the Washington County area, and therefore may eventually become the largest city.

Hurricane Road


This picture shows the view heading east into the downtown area of Hurricane Utah.   The town was formed as a canal was completed to bring water from seven miles above Hurricane into the valley. It took 11 years to complete the canal and the first water hit the valley in 1904. Permanent residents came in 1906. 

The name Hurricane is pronounced by most locals as "Her-ah-kin". The town name comes from a reference made by prominent leaders who indicated the winds they experienced on the bluffs of the area were much like a Hurricane.
