Hurricanes Developing in the Atlantic
Hurricanes form in the Atlantic Ocean by using the warm and moist air. The warm air over the ocean moves up from the surface. When that air rises up, it causes an area of low pressure below. It keeps using the air around it, making more air warm and moist too. Then, when the warm air in the Atlantic Ocean it begins the swirl. Also, the warm, moist air forms clouds when it cools off. The clouds grow and so does the wind speed, forming a hurricane.
