Category 1 hurricane

On the Saffir–Simpson hurricane wind scale (SSHWS), a Category 1 hurricane has 1-minute maximum sustained winds of 74-95 mph (119-153 km/h). This is the lowest level for a hurricane, so a tropical cyclone must have 1-minute maximum sustained winds of at least 74 mph (118 km/h) to be classified as a hurricane. It has very dangerous winds and will produce some damage.
