"A hurricane is an intense, rotating oceanic weather system that possesses maximum sustained winds exceeding 119km/hr (74mph). It forms and intensifies over tropical oceanic regions." About Hurricanes "When air heats up, its molecules move farther apart, making it less dense. This air then rises to higher altitudes where air molecules are less compressed by gravity." Hurricane Damage Hurricanes cause strong winds, storm surges, flooding, and tornados. Hurrican Video The End Hurricanes release more than 2.4 trillion gallons of rain a day. "When warm, low-pressure air rises, cool, high-pressure air seizes the opportunity to move in underneath it." "The "eye" is a roughly circular area of comparatively light winds and fair weather found at the center of a severe tropical cyclone." These can also cause houses to knocked down, cars to flip over, rising of sea level, and many more dangerous and deadly after effects. http://video.nationalgeographic.com/video/environment/environment-natural-disasters/hurricanes/hurricane-montage/ http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/26/sandy-from-space-2012-hurricane-frankenstorm-video_n_2024665.html
