Hurricane Andrew of 1992
What is a Hurricane ?
They start out on the west coast of Africa. The warm waters of the Atlantic ocean gives them energy. the water temperature has to be at least 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Hurricanes tend to lose power though as they hit land because they are not over the warm waters of the Atlantic ocean any more.
Categorizing and Naming
Hurricanes names were originally just girls names. But then in 1979 they changed it to boy and girl names. They make six new lists every year, each containing twenty names boy and girls. If that hurricane was destructive enough its name would be retired. But it would have to be a really powerful and deadly storm.
