  1. 1. Hurricanes By Rowan Dinneen
  2. 2. How Are Hurricanes Formed? <ul><li>Higher pressure areas meet lower pressure areas. </li></ul><ul><li>Air becomes warm and moist then rises into a cloud. </li></ul><ul><li>Fed by warm evaporating ocean water, it keeps growing. </li></ul><ul><li>Cool air rotates around the low pressure area, increasing speed. </li></ul><ul><li>It becomes stronger from the wind and water inside keeps making clouds. </li></ul><ul><li>The eye is formed in the center and is very clear. </li></ul><ul><li>It becomes a violent tropical cyclone. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Precipitation, Wind, and Destruction <ul><li>Hurricanes bring flooding, torrential rain, storm surge and high winds. </li></ul><ul><li>The wind speed of a hurricane ranges from 74mph- 155mph. </li></ul><ul><li>Hurricanes are categorized by wind speed, damage, and storm surge. </li></ul><ul><li>They ruin buildings, pick up cars, and cause millions of dollars worth of damage. </li></ul>

  5. 5. Quote 1 <ul><li>“ She’s comin’ on boys, and she’s comin’ on strong.” Radioed Captain Billy Tyne </li></ul><ul><li>Connection </li></ul><ul><li>Captain Tyne is talking about the hurricane to his crew.

  6. 6. Quote 2 <ul><li>“ After I lost contact with the raft I was by myself and I realized my only chance of survival was to make it until the storm subsided.” </li></ul><ul><li>Connection </li></ul><ul><li>This shows the damage and loss of life that can occur from a hurricane. It also illustrates the length of time that a hurricane can last. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Quote 3 <ul><li>“ If the boats flip over- even with everything dogged down- water is going to get in. The boat’s upside- down, the plywood’s buckling, that’s the end. </li></ul><ul><li>Connection </li></ul><ul><li>They know their lives are on the line and the hurricane’s strength is strong enough to ruin their boat and leave them stranded. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Quote 4 <ul><li>“ The dangerous storm previously forecast was now fact. ” </li></ul><ul><li>Connection </li></ul><ul><li>This shows that even when we have prior knowledge of a storm we don’t always heed the warnings, and that can lead to severe consequences. </li></ul>
