Caption: Hurricane. Shoreline palm trees during a hurricane storm. Hurricanes (also called typhoons or cyclones) are powerful, rotating storm systems which can grow up to about 1000 kilometres across, last for several weeks and travel thousands of kilometres. They can cause extensive damage due to high winds and coastal flooding. Hurricanes form in tropical regions and are caused by large-scale evaporation and convection over warm oceans, combined with atmospheric instability. Photograph of a hurricane which hit Palm Beach in Florida, USA, during August 1949. Palm Beach suffered winds of 200 kilometres (km) per hour, gusting up to 240 km per hour.
