Where are they most commonly formed? Hurricanes form near the equator over warm ocean waters. Some also form in the Caribbean and the Atlantic.This is why some of the worst start as seedlings along the coast of Africa.Unless it travels over warm areas, a hurricane won't be able to last long.

What to do if it happens to youThe key to survival in a hurricane is to have a plan and always stay indoors. You should take refuge in a basement , an attic, or a room without windows. Take safety equipment, like flashlights, emergency kits, and a cell phone.

Fun Facts- The center of the hurricane is called the eye. It is calmer, so if a hurricane seems to stop, don' go out of your hiding place.- The first time someone ever flew into a hurricane was in World war 2.-A typical hurricane can dump 6 inches to a foot of rain across a region.

What is a Hurricane?Hurricanes,are tropical cyclones, or a rapidly rotating storm system, which is formed by a low pressure center, strong winds, and a spiral arrangement of thunderstorms in the tropics.

How do they form?Air from surrounding areas with higher air pressure pushes in to the low pressure area. Then that "new" air becomes warm and moist and rises, too. As the warm air continues to rise, the surrounding air swirls in to take its place. As it evaporates, the air spins and grows, and gains strengh as it travels over low pressure areas.

This is a map of a hurricane.
