HURRICANES WITH POWER
HURRICANE FLOYD SEPTEMBER 16,1999 BY: Daniel Owen
Hurricanes form off the coast of Africa. They start out as a tropical depression. The tropical depression gains strength over the warm water. Then once the the wind speeds reach 39 miles per hour it becomes a tropical storm. As it gains more and more strength the wind speeds increase to 74 miles per hour. Then it becomes a hurricane. Then once it becomes a hurricane it is then named a categorized.
