I'm sorry, I am having trouble seeing the error.  
The storm was a tropical depression at the valid time for that XML, and the SaffirSimpsonCategory  is -2.

So on Dec 05 at 7:00 PM EST it shows a wind speed of 140 MPH - yet the Simpson Cat is -2?

apologies, that portion of the response was cut off.  

I have identified a possible issue, and put in a fix for it.   Thank you for pointing this out. It will go out when we have some more hurricane activity and can test with live data.

No worries - how confident are you that it is resolved?

Also, if I may - is there a way to determine Category, for example "Tropical Cyclone" from the Track?  I don't see it as a value that is available.

Thx.

It will be resolved as soon as I can test a live storm.  

For the record, this is an xml only problem.  The JSON responses are correct and have the category.  I will get the feature add request into our development pipleline, but no promises on a timeline.
