Hurricane Wilma developed in the Caribbean Sea. October 21st, 2015 was Hurricane Wilma's first land fall which was in Cozumel. October 24th was when it hit the Gulf of Mexico and the coast of Florida.
How do Hurricanes form and what happens to them afterwards?
First, you must know that hurricanes form over water at 27°C or even hotter. Next, there must be winds coming together so it could be forced upwards. Then, the winds should flow over the storm to let the winds underneath to rise. Then, the humid air makes clouds. Lastly, the winds on the outside of the hurricane steers it, and lets it grow. It takes time for the hurricane to slowly die down.

It takes about 5 years to recover all the plants. In about 24 hours after Wilma dissipated, a few people in Miami regained electricity. “It will be days or weeks before we are back to normal,” Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Alvarez said. People recovered slowly but managed to recover. "The Department of State actively sought to ensure that U.S. citizens in the region were safe, had access to basic services, and were able to return to the United States as quickly as possible."1.
