Related: Any particular reason why "Hurricane Sandy" keeps getting referred to as "Super Storm Sandy?"

Because it became non-tropical and thus was no longer a hurricane before it made landfall. The distinction is important for people filing storm-related insurance claims.

Nope. Hurricanes (tropical cyclones) remain hurricanes (tropical cyclones) as long as the originated in the tropical oceans and maintain there hurricane like qualities.

no they become post-tropical

storms that originate outside of the triopics are classified "extra-tropical"
