What is a hurricane?
A hurricane is a huge storm! It can be up to 600 miles across and have strong winds spiraling inward and upward at speeds of 75 to 200 mph. Each hurricane usually lasts for over a week, moving 10-20 miles per hour over the open ocean. Hurricanes gather heat and energy through contact with warm ocean waters. Evaporation from the seawater increases their power. Hurricanes rotate in a counter-clockwise direction around an "eye." The center of the storm or "eye" is the calmest part. It has only light winds and fair weather. When they come onto land, the heavy rain, strong winds and large waves can damage buildings, trees and cars.

are severe tropical storms that form in the southern Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea, Gulf of Mexico, and in the eastern Pacific Ocean. Hurricanes gather heat and energy through contact with warm ocean waters. Evaporation from the seawater increases their power. Hurricanes rotate in a counter-clockwise direction around an "eye." Hurricanes have winds at least 74 miles per hour. When they come onto land, the heavy rain, strong winds and heavy waves can damage buildings, trees and cars. The heavy waves are called a storm surge. Storm surges are very dangerous and a major reason why you MUST stay away from the ocean during a hurricane warning or hurricane.

"Hurricane" redirects here. For other uses, see Hurricane (disambiguation) A tropical cyclone is a storm system characterized by a low pressure center and numerous thunderstorms that produce strong winds and flooding rain . A tropical cyclone feeds on heat released when moist air rises, resulting in condensation of water vapour contained in the moist air. They are fueled by a different heat mechanism than other cyclonic windstorms such as nor'easters European windstorms , and polar lows , leading to their classification as "warm core" storm systems. The term "tropical" refers to both the geographic origin of these systems, which form almost exclusively in tropical regions of the globe, and their formation in

Hurricanes are cyclones that develop over the warm tropical oceans and have sustained winds in excess of 64 knots (74 miles/hour). These storms are capable of producing dangerous winds, torrential rains and flooding, all of which may result in tremendous property damage and loss of life in coastal populations. One memorable storm was Hurricane Andrew (pictured above), which was responsible for at least 50 deaths and more than $30 billion in property damage. The purpose of this module is to introduce hurricanes and their associated features, to show where hurricanes develop, and to explain the atmospheric conditions necessary for hurricane development. The Hurricane module has been organized into the following sections: Sections

The Basics
In-Depth Experiments Witness Account ... Quiz Challenge The Basics In this photo of a hurricane from space, the eye of the storm shows up blue in the middle of circling clouds. (Photo: NOAA) What is it? A tropical wave that begins spinning around a center of low pressure is called a tropical depression. Tropical depressions have maximum sustained wind speeds of less than 40 mph at the ocean's surface. When the maximum winds reach 40 mph or greater, the storm changes into a tropical storm, and it's given a name. Once the maximum winds reach 74 mph or greater, the storm becomes a hurricane. Each hurricane has an eye of calm winds and low pressure, surrounded by an eyewall of intense thunderstorms with high winds and heavy rain. Spiral bands of intense thunderstorms spiral into the eyewall of the hurricane from the outer parts of the storm. The generic name for a hurricane is tropical cyclone. These storms are called typhoons when they occur in the western Pacific Ocean, and cyclones in the Indian and southern Pacific Oceans.

... HURRICANE PATHS FLYING INTO THE EYE OF A HURRICANE A monster storm with 150-mile- (241-kilometer-) an-hour winds churns west across the Atlantic Ocean. Scientists at the National Hurricane Center in Miami have tracked it for days using satellite images. Now they're worried it may threaten the United States. It's time for the "hurricane hunters" to go to work! All ships and airplanes have been warned away from this monster. But two four-engine airplanes, each carrying a flight crew and several scientists, now head toward the storm. Their mission? To collect data inside the hurricane that will tell meteorologists where the storm is going, when it will get there, and how violent it will be. As the planes struggle toward the eye, the pilots fight intense updrafts and downdrafts. The hurricane pelts the planes with rain and hail. Static electricity builds up and then discharges with a flash and a loud bang, causing the crew's hair to literally stand on end. "About the last 15 to 20 miles (24 to 32 kilometers) we get into the eye wall," says Greg Bast, a flight engineer, whose job it is to keep the plane's systems operating properly. "That's where we get banged around a lot."

Hurricane Dean is now petering out in the Mexican heartland, with winds down to 100 miles per hour. Dean cut a devastating path across Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, where its eye passed slightly south of the resort capital of Cancun. The category 5 hurricane was the strongest to strike the Atlantic Coast since 1988, and caused widespread destruction from the Yucatan to Belize. Major damage was previously reported in Jamaica, even though the eye passed south of the island.
ORIGINALLY POSTED 16 SEPTEMBER 2004 Hurricanes are born over water, driven by solar energy stored in the ocean. Hurricanes, properly called tropical cyclones, can travel for weeks across the ocean, blasting islands and coastlines with fierce winds, torrential rains and swollen seas.

Hurricanes rotate in a counterclockwise direction. A hurricane is a powerful, rotating storm that forms over warm oceans near the Equator . Another name for a hurricane is a tropical cyclone. Hurricanes have strong, rotating winds (at least 74 miles per hour or 119 kilometers per hour), a huge amount of rain, low air pressure, thunder and lightning. The cyclonic winds of a hurricane rotate in a counterclockwise direction around a central, calm eye. If this type of storm forms in the western Pacific Ocean, it is called a typhoon. Hurricanes often travel from the ocean to the coast and on to land, where the wind, rain, and huge waves can cause extensive destruction. Generally, when a hurricane moves over land (or over cold ocean waters) the storm begins to weaken and quickly dies down because the storm is fueled by warm water.

Hurricanes occur in the tropical regions of the world in 7 distinct basins, and are called Hurricanes in the Carribean, Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico, and eastern Pacific, Typhoons in the western Pacific, and Cyclones in the Indian Ocean. A hurricane "watch" is issued when the threat of storm conditions is expected between 24-36 hours. A "warning" is issued when the storm is expected within 24 hours or less. Objectives
  • Students will learn what a hurricane is, and how and where they are formed. Students will learn how to prepare for a hurricane and what to do in the event of a storm. Students will be taken to some of the best hurricane resources available on the Web where they can research and retrieve all kinds of storm data including historical storms, careers, tracking instruments, current weather maps, and much more.
