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. 02:37 TRIVIA TIME. 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.
