Inside A Monster Storm

By: Maddie and Aishwarya

  • Hurricane=Massive, whirling storm with very powerful winds that release a lot of energy.
  • 3 key parts
  1. The eye=calm spot in center of storm.
  2. The eye wall=thunderstorms surrounding the eye (5-30mph winds)
  3. Rainbands=bands of dense clouds that swirl around eye wall (make rain)
  • Atlantic hurricanes are born off the coast of Africa (trade winds blow it from east to west across Atlantic)
  • The exact track/path of a hurricane is unpredictable
