However, hurricanes actually only refer to tropical cyclones over the Atlantic Ocean with one-minute maximum sustained winds of at least 74 mph. But how are hurricanes formed?How do Hurricanes work?
How Hurricanes Work. Every year, the world experiences hurricane season. During this period, hundreds of storm systems spiral out from the tropical regions surrounding the equator, and between 40 and 50 of these storms intensify to hurricane levels. In the Northern Hemisphere, the season runs from June 1 to Nov.What are the characteristics of a hurricane?
Hurricanes are steered by larger-scale, global winds, such as the trade winds and the Bermuda/Azores High, which is an area of high pressure that exists over the Atlantic Ocean. A hurricane interacts with the ocean before landfall and with the land after landfall. Land interaction generally causes a hurricane to decay.Who invented the hurricane?
As far as human records go, the ancient Mayans of South America made some of the earliest mentions of hurricanes in their hieroglyphics. The centuries that follow are littered with accounts of hurricanes affecting the outcomes of wars, colonization efforts and an untold number of personal lives.
