What Makes A Hurricane?

They start forming near the equator where the most warm water is once the storm starts moving the wind and rain hit the land and slows down further in the land the storm gets. hurricanes need at least three conditions. First, the ocean waters must be warm enough at the surface to put enough heat and moisture in the hurricanes. Second, atmospheric moisture from sea water evaporation must combine with that heat and energy to form the powerful engine needed to propel a hurricane.Third, a wind pattern must be near the ocean surface to spirals air inward.
