WHAT IS A HURRICANE?
• A hurricane is defined as a tropical storm
  with sustained winds equaling or exceeding
  seventy-four miles per hour
  (approximately64.3 knots).
HURRICANES AND FLORIDA
• Southwest Florida has been identified by the
  National Weather Service as one of the most
  hurricane-vulnerable areas of the United States.
  The potential for large-scale loss of life and
  property during a hurricane is great. The analysis
  of hurricane probability is based upon historical
  occurrences in Southwest Florida, as showed in
  data available from the National Climatic Center.
FLORIDA’S HURRICANE
      HISTORY
          • From 1873 to 1993,
            Southwest Florida
            experienced forty-nine
            tropical cyclones of
            hurricane intensity. Eight
            of these typical cyclones
            prior to 1885 were thought
            to be tropical storms or
            hurricanes. Therefore,
            some of these early storms
            could have been below
            hurricane intensity.
HURRICANE TRACKING JET
           • A jet called the
             Gulfstream-IV flies
             around tropical
             cyclones to enable a
             better picture of the
             upper atmosphere of
             the storm and better
             predict landfall time
             and intensity.
WHAT HURRICANES BRING!


   oWind and Rain
   oTornadoes
   oLightning
WIND AND RAIN

      • Hurricanes bring 75+
        MPH winds with
        heavy rains and
        flooding.
TORNADOES

    • With hurricanes comes
      the strong possibility
      of tornadoes so pay
      close attention to those
      clouds during a
      hurricane!!
LIGHTNING

     • During a hurricane or
       any other storm you
       can almost bet there is
       going be lightning.
       Sometimes what is
       known as reverse
       lightning like seen
       here can occur.
CAUTION!!


• Remember that during any storm you
  should stay indoors and not be on the roads
  unless evacuation is necessary.
• Be sure to have plenty of food and drink
  available incase you can’t get to a store.
