Caption: Hurricane Bob. Yacht being thrown onto rocks by Hurricane Bob. This hurricane hit the east coast of the USA on 19 August 1991. This photograph was taken at Padanaram Harbour in south Massachusetts. The high winds beached and destroyed 90 boats, and the harbour bridge (not seen) was washed away in high seas. Hurricanes are cyclonic storms in which the wind speed may reach 200 kilometres per hour. Most hurricanes originate in the doldrums, areas of ocean around the equator which are generally calm. A low pressure region forms as moist air is forced upwards, and this becomes the eye of the storm. Hurricanes occur mainly in the late summer months, when conditions for formation are ideal.
