hurricanes can cause terrible disasters. To begin hurricanes are massives storms. The eye or the center is 20-40 miles wide. Near the eye are rainbands which spiral in towards the eye. Although if you are underneath the eye it is calm. That doesn't last long, hurricanes have lots of rain and last a few days.

Hurricanes are one of the most popular natural disasters that there are.

To begin hurricanes are big thunderstorms that are created over big land masses like an ocean.

Hurricanes are very powerful and destructive.

In fact there was a hurricane in Taiwan that rained 114 inches in just three days.

That much water could create serious flooding and landslides.

That storm was very powerful with very high winds.

Lucky for us meteorologists can predict a hurricane so that can prepare us.

Hurricanes have many different parts to them.

One of the most known is the eye which can be as big as 20-40 miles long!

To exaggerate they are like as big as north America.

The eye is the center and least powerful.

Other parts include the eye wall which is much more powerful.

Winds can be around 200 miles per hour.

Rain bands are storm clouds that spiral toward the eye.
