Caption: Trees bending during a hurricane. A hurricane is a severe tropical cyclonic storm, occurring in the North Atlantic or east Pacific Oceans or the Gulf of Mexico. They are typified by a very low pressure central zone ('eye'), with a rapidly increasing pressure gradient toward the periphery. This induces very strong winds rotating about the 'eye', speeds of over 300 km/h have been known. A tropical cyclone becomes a hurricane when its wind speeds exceed 65 knots (120 km/h). Typhoons are identical phenomena which originate in the west Pacific Ocean. This storm was photographed in Florida in October 1953.
