The Great Miami Hurricane of 1926
Some Information About Hurricanes
In the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico, and Eastern, Pacific Ocean, the people there called the storms hurricanes. In the Western Pacific Ocean, the people there call them typhoons.
The wind speeds determines the category of a hurricane. The Saffir Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale is used to categorize hurricanes. These are the wind speeds of each category. Category 1 74-95 mph, category 2 96-110 mph, category 3 111-129 mph, category 4 130-156 mph, and category 5 157 mph or higher.
The hurricane season starts in mid-August and ends in late October. The names of hurricanes are recycled every six years. The hurricanes are named by The World Meteorological Organization. If a storm forms in the off-season, it will take the next name in the list based on the current calendar.
My Hurricanes History
Hurricanes are very dangerous. They kill and injure people all the time. If you ever see a hurricane, be smart. Don`t let it kill you.
This is the trial it left. I can`t believe how far it went.
This was a lovely home untill the hurricane came through. Everything went down hill from there.
This hurricane of 1926 destroyed lots of homes. Mostly on the coast.
