    you a ticket In terms of danger there is no big difference between 74 mph and 76 mph But you will get a ticket when you drive 76 mph The same concept applies for hurricanes Winds at 73 mph and 74 mph will cause similar damage but they are defined as a tropical storm and a Cat 1 hurricane respectively In short Saffir Simpson Scale is just a qualitative measure of hurricane strength and allows us to better define the hurricanes 2 Where are hurricanes most likely to form during the Atlantic hurricane season A hurricane is a gigantic system that requires lots of energy to maintain Where does that energy come from From warm ocean surface through evaporation When water becomes vapor it absorbs energy This is a similar mechanism when you get out of swimming pool You feel cool It s not because the water is cool the water is pretty hot in Miami it s because the water evaporation takes energy away from your skin which makes you feel cool So when ocean water evaporates it takes energy away from the ocean surface and this is the energy supply for hurricanes The higher the sea surface temperature the easier for water evaporation So hurricanes like to form over the warm ocean surface In the Atlantic Ocean water is warmer in the west side than in the east side This is the reason why you find many hurricanes in the Caribbean Gulf of Mexico and along US coast 3 What was the highest wind speed ever recorded in a hurricane I believe it is Hurricane Hazel in 1954 The highest wind speed recorded is about 150 mph 240 km h It is the strongest hurricane ever recorded to date to strike so far inland 4 What is the
