Hurricane usually refer to strong and deep tropical cyclones in the Atlantic and Eastern Pacific regions. It also generally refers to squally winds, any tropical cyclones, and any strong winds with force 12. There is a wind eye at the center of a hurricane. The smaller the wind eye, the greater the destructive power. Hurricane is similar to that of a typhoon, except the location of its origin.
In the northern hemisphere, the typhoon rotates counterclockwise, while in the southern hemisphere it rotates clockwise. One reason why a hurricane occurs in the tropical ocean is that warm sea water “fuels” it. It is usually accompanied by strong winds and heavy rains, which seriously threaten people’s lives and property, and cause great impact on people’s livelihood, agriculture, and economy. This is a natural disaster with greater impact and serious harm.
