What is it?/How does it form?

A Hurricane is a deadly storm that wrecks everything in its path, it destroys houses people wild life etc. A Hurricane can only form in waters 80 degrees or warmer and anywhere between 5-15 degrees latitude/near the equator. It forms in the water when to warm fronts go in a upward motion at the same time and at the same speed because hot air goes up because it is less dense/ ways less then it turns back into cold air and falls then it turns back into hot and rises then they just keep cycling through getting faster and faster as they go.

Historical Example.
