10 facts about hurricanes
- A hurricane is a tropical storm that forms in the sea and produces very heavy rains and super strong winds.
- Hurricanes form when warm moist air over water begins to rise, then the rising air is replaced by cooler air. This creates large clouds and thunderstorms, which turn into hurricanes.
- The word “Hurricane” comes from the Mayan word “Huracan” which was the God of wind, storm, and fires.
- The eye of a hurricane is the centre, and it’s the safest part; everything around is considered the eye wall, where there are dark clouds, strong winds, and rain.
- Most hurricanes happen out at sea, however, when they get close to land they can be very dangerous and cause grave damage.
- Hurricanes can reach speeds of up to 320kmph (almost 200mph!).
- Hurricanes spin in different directions depending on where they are – this is due to the Coriolis Force, produced by the Earth’s rotation.
- Hurricanes are also called cyclones and typhoons depending on where they occur.
- The largest hurricane recorded is Typhoon Tip, which occurred in 1979 in the northwest Pacific. It was nearly half the size of the U.S. with a diameter of 2,220km (1380 miles)
- All hurricanes are given names by the World Meteorological Organisation so they can be distinguished from each other.
