Hurricanes: The Tropical Problem
By: Camden McMillan & Peyton Bennett
What are the effects?
Hurricanes can cause various things. For example they cause heavy rainfall, storm surges, high winds, riptides, and a lot of damage.
How is it measured?
it is measured on the Saffir-Simpson scale with categories 1-5. 1 is the slowest winds, while 5 is the fastest winds
In todays time we are fortunate enough to have satellites that can track storm systems. Satellites can track hurricanes and can tell when they will hit a piece of land.
