Dangers of Storms

Hurricanes can destroy entire houses. They can also kill thousands of people (alone.) A hurricane always has an eye. The eye is the middle of the hurricane. Hurricanes formed in the Indian Ocean are called cyclones. Water has to be at least 80 Fahrenheit to form a hurricane. How people name a hurricane is very interesting. The first storm or hurricane begins with an a. The second starts with a b and so on. In other places hurricanes are called typhoons. Now we have sirens to warn us.

I had no idea that the water temperature had to be that high to have a hurricane. I learn new things every day [smile].
