Hurricane Florence, a terrible storm that is causing extensive damage to the Carolinas.

Hurricanes begin as a tropical storm over the moist waters of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans near the equator. As the moisture evaporates, it rises until gigantic amounts of heated moist air are twisted high in the atmosphere. The storms are steered by global winds. These winds are also called trade winds blow from east to west in the tropics. The winds carry hurricanes and other tropical storms from east. At first, Hurricane Florence had posed no threat to land. It was soon discovered afterwards that the hurricane was now traveling towards the east coast states, with wind speeds of about 140 mph.

Flooding from the hurricane in South Carolina.

The states that are being affected by this storm are Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, and Washington DC. At the moment the storm is passing through the Carolinas, the floodwaters there are rising more. Right now, about 42 people are dead, and it doesn’t stop there. About 3.4 million birds and more than 5,000 pigs have drowned from the waters of the storm.

At this moment, Hurricane Florence has died down to a category 1 hurricane, meaning that the storm’s wind speeds are at least about 74 mph. Even if Hurricane Florence is just a category 1, the storm still has enough wind speed to uproot trees and cause power outages.
