What is "Hurricane Season"?

June 1st marks the beginning of Hurricane Season in The Atlantic Ocean and it goes until November 30th. The Atlantic Ocean includes the Caribbean Sea as well as the Gulf of Mexico waters.

Hurricanes are considered the most violent storms on Earth. They produce very strong winds, storm surge flooding and heavy rainfall that leads to inland flooding. 

Hurricanes form under low-pressure systems over tropical or subtropical waters. They gain their energy from how warm the ocean water is. 

Once the hurricane forms, the surface winds cause it to continuously move in circular motion. This type of rotation is often referred to as the "eye".

The "Eye" is the calm, clear center of the storm. The area surrounded by the "eye" is where the winds are the strongest. Hurricanes pack a punch by having winds 74mph or greater.

If you live in a Hurricane prone area, its best to be aware of any hurricanes that might impact the area you live in. Its recommended to be prepared at all times.
