Storyboard Text

  • For hurricanes to form, heated ocean water is needed to provide the energy for the storm to become a hurricane, they need high levels of humidity. Hurricanes start with a low breeze and hot water. The water evaporates and creates a low pressure point which after is filled by the cooler breeze. Then the air cools and drops with rain and the cycle repeats.
  • .
  • As the hurricane starts to form the evaporation which pumps water into the lower atmosphere…. At higher altitudes, water vapor starts to condense into clouds and rain, releasing heat that warms the surrounding air, causing it to rise as well. This cloud is named cloud cover, it surrounds the hurricane, the clouds have a high precipitation causing rain, snow or drizzle. After the cloud cover has completely surrounded the hurricane, there will be no more sunlight until the hurricane ends
  • .
  • The temperature is also a very important factor for a hurricane to form. As warm ocean water is needed to provide the energy. Commonly, the surface water temperature must be 26 degrees Celsius or higher for a hurricane to form.
  • .
  • At the center of the hurricane is the eye. The eye is an area of very lowpressure. There are generally no clouds in the eye and the wind is calm. What surrounds the eye is called the eye walls. The eye wall is made up of very heavy clouds. This is the most dangerous part of the hurricane and where the highest speed winds are.
  • .
  • When a hurricane travels over land or cold water, its energy source (warm water) is gone and the storm weakens, quickly dying.
