00:09 Hello! It’s quite windy today.

00:13 So, I thought I’ll take a quick flight.

00:18 It sure is windy…

00:22 Oh no, it’s a storm.

00:24 You mean, hurricane?

00:26 Hurricane, storm, whatever, just run!

00:30 You mean fly.

00:31 Oh forget it, just come, Dr. Binocs.

00:34 Oh okay, well, that reminds me, that today’s topic is Hurricane!

00:40 Zoom in!

00:43 Woaaah!

00:44 A hurricane is a huge storm, that generally forms over warm ocean waters…

00:50 ..near the equator.

00:52 The warm air above the ocean rises upward…

00:56 ..thus creating an area of low pressure, below!

01:00 Air from the surrounding areas…

01:02 ..push in and try to fill the area with low air pressure.

01:07 Which now becomes warm and moist.

01:09 And, rises too.

01:12 As the moist air rises, the surrounding air again, tries to fill in.

01:17 And, this process continues, till the water in the air forms clouds!

01:23 Soon the clouds and winds spin around..

01:26 ..fueled by the oceans heat and water vapor.

01:31 Therefore, hurricanes could also be called, Giant Engines.

01:35 That use warm and moist air as their fuel!

01:39 When we see from the top,…

01:41 ..hurricanes can be as huge as 300 miles wide.

01:46 The center of the hurricane is called ‘The Eye’ of the hurricane.

01:51 Which is the calmest part.

01:54 The ‘Eye Wall’ surrounds the eye.

01:56 Where the most damaging winds are found.

01:59 It can range anywhere, from 5-30 Miles.

02:05 Then comes ‘The Rain Bands’.

02:07 Which surround the eyewall.

02:09 These bands are a series of dense clouds..

02:13 ..that give a pin wheel-like appearance to the hurricane.

02:16 Which range from 50-300 Miles.

02:21 Hurricanes are divided into 5 categories.

02:25 Depending on the speed of their wind.

02:28 Here, take a look.

02:30 Category 3, 4 and 5 are the most dangerous ones.


02:40 A huge hurricane can release energy…

02:43 ..equivalent to 10 atomic bombs per second.

02:47 Hurricanes in the Pacific Ocean are known as Typhoons!

02:53 So, this is me zooming out!

02:57 Tune in next time for more fun facts.

03:00 Byeee.
