Hurricane is pronounced "Hur-a-kin" by local residents and is on the far eastern edge of Washington County, Utah and is part of the St. George Metropolitan Area about 19 miles north east of St. George. The community was settled as part of the 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 and pecan nuts on small farms. There are several medical clinics in the area.
On the southeast 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 taxing to their home' private garages. Geographically, the town is less than 100 miles from the north rim of the Grand Canyon, which make it a popular destination for sport para-gliders.
The area supports the Sand Hollow Lake with boating, fishing and water activities. Nearby is the Sand Hollow Championship Golf Course.
