 What is a Hurricane?
A hurricane is a huge storm. It can be up to 600 miles across and have strong helical winds inward and upward at speeds of 75 to 200 mph. Each hurricane usually lasts for over a week, moving 10-20 miles per hour over the open ocean.
Hurricanes gather heat and energy through contact with warm ocean waters. In fact
vaporization from the seawater increases their power. The heavy rain, strong winds and large waves can damage buildings, trees, cars and any other large things. Hurricanes rotate in a counter-clockwise direction. The center of the storm or "eye" is its calmest part.


What's Sandy?
Hurricane Sandy was a tropical cyclone of the 2012 Atlantic hurricane season that strongly affected many areas in late October. On record, it was the largest in diameter. Initial estimates of its loss might make it the second-costliest Atlantic hurricane in history, only behind Hurricane Katrina.
