The Storm From the Sea
How is a hurricane formed?
A hurricane is formed because of the Weather Machine which is the energy from the sun, earth, air, and water to make weather.
The first step to make a hurricane is to have a whole lot of thunder storm make a tropical depression. Next is that the depression becomes a disturbance. Third is that the disturbance becomes a tropical storm. Finally when wind speeds go higher then 75 mph. And then you have your self a hurricane.
Not all storms become hurricanes usually they get to tropical storm then they start to lose power.
The name of the storm changes because if a hurricane forms in the Indian Ocean they are called tropical cyclones, if they form over the Pacific Ocean and head twordes Asia it is called a typhone
