Hurricane Resources

Atlantic Hurricane

Hurricanes and tropical storms are a reality for the Southeastern United States including Florida. This post is intended to provide links to various Hurricane-related resources to help keep you informed about hurricanes. Stay informed and stay safe.

What is an [Atlantic] Hurricane: “An Atlantic hurricane or tropical storm is a tropical cyclone that forms in the Atlantic Ocean, usually between the months of June and November. A hurricane differs from a cyclone or typhoon only on the basis of location. A hurricane is a storm that occurs in the Atlantic Ocean and northeastern Pacific Ocean, a typhoon occurs in the northwestern Pacific Ocean, and a cyclone occurs in the south Pacific or Indian Ocean.” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atlantic_hurricane)
