  1. 1. Hurricane Facts and Information By: Chris Brickey Forward
  2. 2. Menu 1. Names, Formations and Results 2. Interesting Facts About Hurricanes 3. The Eye and Eye Wall 4. Conclusion forward 5. References
  3. 3. Names • There are many different names that Hurricanes go by all across the World. • They can be called Tropical Cyclones, Typhoons, Cyclonic Storms, and Tropical Depressions. • All of these names are valid for the destructive for we call a “Hurricane.” Backwards
  4. 4. Names continued • It is an intense tropical weather system of strong thunderstorms with a well-defined surface circulation and sustained winds of at least 74 mph (64 knots). Hurricane: the North Atlantic Ocean Typhoon: the Northwest Pacific Ocean Cyclone: the Southwest Pacific Ocean and the Indian Ocean
  5. 5. Results of The Hurricane • The main result of the Hurricane is the condensation of water vapor fuels the formation of cyclonic windstorms and polar lows. • With this combination, many destructive things can happen.
  6. 6. Formation of Hurricanes • Hurricanes are formed when heat is released as moist air rises during evaporation. • They usually form along the equator. • Northern Hemisphere winds rotate counter clockwise as Southern Hemisphere winds rotate clockwise.
  7. 7. Interesting Facts • May is the LEAST active month for Hurricanes to occur, but September is the MOST active. • Hurricanes are mostly observed in the late Summer and early fall months. • One advantage of a Hurricane is that it can end droughts that countries may be going through at that period of time.
  8. 8. Interesting Facts Continued… • Hurricanes can generate mass flooding and storm surges up to 40 Kilometers. • Hurricanes are characterized by powerful winds, torrential rain, formation of high waves and tornadoes. • The first Hurricane recorded was, “ Hurricane Santa Ana,” on July 26th 1825.
  9. 9. The Eye & Eye Wall of a Hurricane • The eye of a Hurricane is a very calm center. • They eye of the Hurricane is usually circular in shape with a diameter ranging from 35 to 65 Kilometers and runs through the center of the storm. • eVs&feature=related Go Forward
  10. 10. Focusing on the Eye Wall • The Eye of a Hurricane is encircled by the Eye Wall, which is a huge ring of very dense Thunderstorms. • Out of the whole Hurricane the Eye wall is the most Destructive part. • Eye walls tend to sport a circular shape, but sometimes are triangular.
  11. 11. More facts about the Eye Wall • The lowest atmospheric pressure is felt inside the eye of the Hurricane and can be 15% lower than the pressure outside the storm. • Normally, a typical mature hurricane has an eye with a diameter of 30 to 65 kilometers, but in severe cases, the violent storms can form a very small, clear eye, which is circular in shape. • Zc Backwards
  12. 12. References • Below is where I got all my information about the eye of the Hurricane. • • This is where I received all information about The interesting Facts, Formations, Results and some information on Names. • facts-about-hurricanes.html
  13. 13. • With doing this research Power Point about Hurricanes I feel that I have a lot more knowledge about one of the worlds natural disasters. I think it’s important that everyone knows information about Natural Disasters that we, the U.S can have occur at any time. I really liked learning all this information so that I can one day use it when I decide on where I want to live. Not having to deal with Hurricanes every year, may trigger my decision on living somewhere certain. Learning about Hurricanes was very interesting and fun at the same time. I think that Hurricanes may be my favorite Natural disaster because of all the Science involved.
