How do Hurricanes form?

Hurricanes only form over warm ocean water. The Corilis Force has to create the spin in the hurricane so it can become weak near the equator. Winds flow outward above the storm allowing the air to rise. Hurricanes typically form between 5 to 15 degrees latitude north and south of the equator.

Most hurricanes start during the fall season. Hurricanes have occurred in many different places such as, Hurricane Katrina in 2005 developed in the Atlantic Ocean then hit land devasting New Orleans.
