Hurricanes however, are the most damaging. If you thought the damage was from the storm then you would be wrong because the water from it causes flooding and extreme rapids. Imagine just getting hit by thousands of baseballs to the face. Their scale is known as the Saffir-Simpson, which measure the waves of water or storm surge. Other names around the world are typhoons or cyclone. To start a hurricane is thunderstorms over water. Then, as warm air begins to rise the clouds get bigger and bigger. Slowly, yet surely, they form an eye wall in the center of the storm. Then it spins and grows storm once it comes onto land. Also, once it starts to get onto land, it dies. This storm is starting to become a problem in the US, even though only 5 on average happen in the US, mostly due to people living near water. One of the most damaging, hurricane Matthew, caused 15 billion dollars.
All of these storms are very damaging. Yet if their wasn't any warm and unstable air all of these wouldn't of exist.
