#Hurricanes form in areas of intense low pressure and throughout their cycle can build up #energy levels equivalent to 10,000 #nuclear bombs.
Usually occurring in each hemisphere's summer months, hurricanes are also known as #cyclones or #typhoons. They form over warm #ocean waters:
When sea temperature is 26.6 degrees Celsius or higher at a depth of some 50 metres.
When there is enough humidity.
And when surface #winds meet.
When warm air comes into contact with the ocean's surface it heats up and starts to rise, creating an area of low pressure underneath. New cooler air swirls in to take its place.
As the heated, moist air rises and then cools off the resulting water vapour forms clouds. Fed by the ocean's heat and surface #evaporation the swirls of air gather pace, whipping up a storm.
Moving at about 30 kilometres an hour, generally from east to west, the storm's diameter ranges from 300 metres to a thousand kilometres. In just over a week it can travel thousands of kilometres.
