Hurricanes feed off warm air. Once it moves into cold climates it evaporates or in other terms, just stops. Hurricanes start where the ocean is the warmest. The warmest part of the sea is where the sun shines the most. That's why there aren't too many hurricanes in the North or South Pole's.
Hurricanes happen near the equator, that's an imaginary line that goes around the center of the earth. This is where it is the warmest, so people living near the Carribean Sea should watch out. Some parts of the equator get more sunlight than the other parts. The amount of light that streams in from fall to spring isn't as direct as the amount of sunlight during the summer.
Rays from the sun are what makes the sunlight feel so hot in the summer . But since the sunlight isn't as direct in the summer,it hits different rays that are cold on its way down and can't hit the water directly.
Usually the hurricanes that hit the east coast of the U.S.A. are separated into two different groups. One of the most common ones is Cape Verde. These are born over the Atlantic by the Cape Verde Islands. These are by the West Coast of Africa. The hurricanes from there follow a circular path toward our country. First they head west, then move slightly northwest . Then swing totally north then east and die out. The other group of hurricanes is called the Carribean Family. They are usually born in the western part of the Carribean Sea. First they go northwest into the Gulf of Mexico then turn up northeast and somtimes pass through Florida into the Atlantic Ocean.
This disaster is very deadly.If a hurricane warning is issued, people should evacuate the area.
