The Hurricanes

A storm may develop in to a hurricane, when air is heated and contacts warm waters.

As the water evaporates, moist air arises and spirals inwards toward the core the closer the air gets to the centre, the faster it moves. When this process repeats its self the storm turns into a Hurricane.
