Hi! My name is Matthew. Last night, I saw a news about natural disasters! I am here to tell you about how dangerous hurricanes can be.
When warm, moist air rises up, the rising air is replaced by cooler air above. If this keeps repeating multiple times, it forms large massive clouds and thunderstorms. If these progress keeps growing, and starts to rotate it forms a hurricane.
A hurricane is a large storm with strong winds that forms over warm waters close the equator areas. Hurricanes have winds of at least 74 miles per hour and an area of low air pressure in the eye! The wind's strong! Oh! And just to tell you! I'm under a bridge so that is why I am not blown away!
When a hurricane strikes a area, it makes serious hazards. The hazards have heavy rains, strong winds, a storm, and even tornadoes. Storms pushes seawater on shore during a hurricane, flooding towns near the coast. Heavy rains cause flooding in inland places as well. It's a lot to clean up!
Hurricanes usually form in the Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic, and Pacific ocean.
Well! hope you learned a lot about hurricanes! Bye!
