Hurricanes

Hurricanes are violent storms on the Earth.

How they form

     Hurricanes form near the equator, and they usually form in the Atlantic and Pacific ocean. There are 3 things a hurricane needs to form - ocean waters must be warm enough at the surface, atmospheric moisture from sea water evaporation must combine with that heat and energy to form the powerful engine needed to propel a hurricane, and lastly, a wind pattern must be near the ocean surface to spirals air inward. It has to be at least 80 degrees F or more for a hurricane to form, or else it wouldn't be warm enough.

     The minimum wind speed of a hurricane is usually 75 - 200 mph. The maximum wind speed of a hurricane could be about 200 mph. A hurricane is usually about maybe

Historical Hurricanes

     Between the last decade *10 years*, Hurricane Katrina happened. That hurricane cost so much money, but didn't cost many people their lives. As you see from below, this hurricane really did a lot of damage. Katrina was a category 5 hurricane. It's highest wind were about 174 mph.

     Hurricane Galveston was a hurricane from 1900, which is about 115 years ago. This hurricane didn't do as much damage as Katrina, it's highest wind speed was 143 mph. Hurricane Galveston was a category 4 hurricane. It affected a few areas like Atlantic Canada, Puerto Rico Texas etc.

Impacts On Human Life

     The impacts that hurricanes have on humans are that we need to pay a lot of money due to the damage they bring. Of course, we are pretty prepared now a days because we have the technology, but of course it still does cost us a lot of money.

     Another impact on us humans is our lives! Hurricanes kill many people, and I don't mean like 20 people, I mean like 1 million people! And as we know, that is a very bad thing! So that is one huge impact that hurricanes impact on our lives.
