VIRGINIA CAN EXPECT to be affected by an average of one hurricane every four years. Hurricanes dump huge amounts of rain, have the potential to cause dangerous floods and storm surges, and can bring wind gusts in excess of 74 mph.

This explains how hurricanes form. First hurricanes start when thunderstorms drift over warm ocean currents. Next, trade winds blowing in opposite directions casue the storm to spin. The air rises faster and faster trying to fill the low pressure. As the storm moves it picks up more moist air. When a hurricane reaches land is has devastating effects. This surprised me because I didnt know how hurricanes formed.
