Hurricanes develop over moist, warm ocean water (atleast 80 degrees F.) Warm air rises which leaves lower pressure air below. Winds surrounding the area then push higher pressure air into the lower pressure area. That "new" air also becomes moist and warm and rises. The warm, moist air rises and creates clouds. Overtime, clouds continue to grow, while wind flows outward above the storm. Outside winds blow inward,narrating a funnel shaped cloud.
