that's also only measuring wind speed and not rainfall.  I wonder how the graph changes if you look beyond wind speed (the deciding factor in whether or not it's a hurricane).

According to the AGW crowd we should be seeing more frequent and stronger hurricanes however they are measured.

Hurricane categories are just determined by sustained wind speed. The amount of rainfall is usually determined by how fast the hurricane is moving. Slow moving storms generally have more rain which seems pretty obvious as it is always raining in them.
