Hurricanes – Learning about Hurricanes for kids and children


– [Narrator] Hurricanes. A hurricane is a huge
storm with powerful winds and lots of rain, they can
be up to 600 miles across and make a spiraling shape like this. Hurricanes are formed over
water in tropical areas and they use warm water as energy. They can move ten to 20 miles
per hour across the ocean. Most hurricanes happen entirely over water and they aren’t dangerous to us. But when a hurricane gets close to the land they can
cause a lot of damage. Their winds can be up
to 200 miles per hour and they can knock over trees,
power lines, and buildings. They can also cause tornadoes, thunder and lightning, big waves, and flooding. The hole in the center of a
hurricane is called the eye. It’s a clear part of the storm,
no clouds or rain at all. But the area closest to
the eye, the eye wall has the fastest and most
dangerous rain and wind. Hurricanes are given names
by weather officials. For example this is hurricane Matthew. It’s a powerful hurricane
that formed in October 2016. When a hurricane comes there are a few things you can do to
make sure you stay safe. One, keep emergency
supplies like flashlights, food, water, and a battery operated radio. Two, if the storm is powerful
enough you might need to board up your windows to
make sure that they don’t break. Three, stay away from low
lying areas that are prone to flooding and don’t try
to drive in those floods. Four, during the storm stay inside. Five have an evacuation plan in case the storm gets to powerful. If your states governor says to evacuate then you should be ready
to leave immediately. Most hurricanes aren’t
very dangerous to us. As long as we’re careful and prepared we can stay safe during these storms. Thanks for watching.
