How Hurricanes Form

Hurricanes are large destructive storms that destroy everything in their paths. Hurricanes start out as large masses of air that collect heat and energy from the ocean.(HINTS: that is why hurricanes loose power when they make landfall.Once this heat and energy is collected the hurricane can reach speeds up to 100mph.
