A hurricane forms over seas and starts with warm water at least 80 degrees Fahrenheit. It rises up into the atmosphere and keeps going up and up. Then the there is a big funnel. The wind will blow in a certain direction and that's the way the hurricane will go.
80% of Hurricane Katrina was flooded. Hurricane Sandy was not as flooded. Hurricane Sandy's high for wind was 125 mph. Hurricane Katrina's wind was up to 175 mph. It was similar because a lot of people lost power.
We evacuate and also watch the news forecast for things ahead and we will be able to leave before it happens. We use a radar to see if the hurricane is coming.
