What is a hurricane?
A hurricane is a massive storm system that forms over ocean waters, but subsequently moves toward land. Most hurricanes come with serious storm threats such heavy rainfall, powerful winds, rip currents, storm surges, landslides, tornadoes as well as both coastal and inland flooding.
It is however worthy to note that there are certain popular hurricane seasons. For instance, the Atlantic Hurricane Season runs from June 1st to November 30th whereas the Pacific Hurricane Season runs from May 15th to November 30th. That said, some areas more susceptible to hurricanes include any US coast or any territory in the Atlantic/Pacific oceans. Of course, hurricanes can affect areas more than 100 miles inland and are most active in the month of September.
