How does a hurricane erupt?
A hurricane is a huge storm that starts as water, it then joins in with air and
How is a hurricane formed?
Firstly, It starts off with sea water, the water has to be at least 27 ° celcius in order for a hurricane to form.
Next, The water then causes the air above it to warm up, and as the water warms up, the air starts to rise all the way up to the sky. The air that is above the water is very humid, so it has a lot of water stored in it. As the air rises, more air comes and takes its place. The cycle continues to repeat. When all of the humid air has raised, it starts to cool down and become clouds.
After that, the clouds then start to join in with the wind. In order for them to join, the wind has to be calm and steady. It can’t be the type of wind that becomes calm, then harsh and then calm again. If the wind is too harsh, the storm can be blown away. If there is warm damp air within the wind, and it can stay like that for a few days, this is when the hurricane's pieces, start to form.
The steady winds push the developing storm over the ocean and the warm water gives the storm more energy. The air rises into the growing storm and it continued to feed it more energy and inside of the hurricane, the winds power starts to improve.
As the hurricane grows, it starts to turn. It continues to spin with the eye in the centre, The longer the warm air gives the storm energy, the longer the hurricane can continue to travel.
Hurricanes usually die down when they reach cooler, colder water or land and that is because the warm sea water is not longer able to give the storm more fuel or energy. Hurricanes usually leave behind a lot of rain, the rain can even last a few days before dying down. It also can push a lot of ocean water to land which can cause a lot floods!
Did you know…?
The centre of the hurricane which is referred to the ‘Eye’ is the calmest place throughout the storm, even though it is right in the centre!?
Hurricanes usually appear around the topical islands and ocean, so I do not recommend going around those areas during June 1 to November 30 (Summer Time)
