A hurricane is a severe tropical cyclone usually with heavy rains and winds moving a 73-136 knots (12 on the Beaufort scale). A hurricane feeds on heat released when moist air rises, resulting in condensation of water vapor contained in the moist air.

A hurricane is a powerful, spiraling storm that begins over a warm sea, near the equator. When a hurricane hits land, it can do great damage through its fierce winds, torrential rains, inland flooding, and huge waves crashing ashore. A powerful hurricane can kill more people and destroy more property than any other natural disaster.
