Where do hurricanes occur?
When we examine where all the hurricanes occur in the world and the paths they travel, a few similarities stand out. Two similarities are that all the cyclones occur along the warmest region of the planet known as the tropical convergence zone and that they travel from east to west. In the Northern Hemisphere, these storms occur during the months of June through November which are the warmest months of the year there. In the Southern Hemisphere, the cyclones occur during the months of December to May which are the warmest months of the year there.
