    What is the minimum wind speed necessary for a storm to be considered a hurricane? How does circulation differ between a hurricane in the northern and southern hemispheres? What conditions are necessary for a hurricane to form? Look and listen to the animation on wind shear. What is wind shear? What happens if there is a high amount of wind shear? Is there a difference between a hurricane, a typhoon, or a cyclone? Why can’t hurricanes form right at the equator? What are the three factors that weaken a hurricane during development? What are the three stages of development for a hurricane? What are the three major features/structures of a hurricane? What conditions are present in each structure? What is the difference between a hurricane watch and a hurricane warning? What exactly is a storm surge? How does the low pressure of the eye contribute to the storm surge? Where are tornadoes commonly found in a hurricane? If you are caught in a rip current (rip tide), what is the best way to escape it? How do scientists think that El Niño affects hurricanes in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans?

    Hmmm I only know the mimimum speed becuase I used sail, but a hurricane need a speed on more than 32,6 m/s or more than 63 knots.
