Hurricanes: The Most Violent And Massive Storm

Decent Essays
When a tropical cyclone forms over the Atlantic or Pacific Ocean it earns the name “hurricane.” Hurricanes are the most violent and massive storms that occur on the planet. Most often hurricanes form near the equator where the warmer air acts as a fuel that drives engine of these potentially devastating super storms. The warm air rises which causes an area of low pressure below. Then air from the surrounding areas higher air pressure pushes into the low pressure area. The new air becomes moist and warm and then rises as well. This begins a repeating cycle of air rising and cooling off forming clouds. The entire system of wind and clouds spins and grows constantly being fed by ocean’s heat and water evaporating from the surface. Hurricanes
