What makes a hurricane natural?

Hurricanes, also know as a tropical cyclone, can start off normal. First, the wind going over warm ocean water below it, 80 degrees Fahrenheit or above is required, the wind absorbs the ocean water into the clouds. It starts rotating counter-clockwise then. With the help of the wind it helps steer the hurricane in other directions. The hole in the middle is called the eye. It's the part that is the calmest part of the hurricane during.

These are what hurricanes look after it is made for example.

What makes a hurricane a disaster?

When the hurricane hits land, it starts causing much destruction. The hurricanes can cause wind damage and floods while as it moves on land, causing the destruction that it a lot. But have you see the Eye in those pictures? You may know what it is. The eye is the part where it is the calmest. The eye rains slightly also. The eye is the calmest part in the hurricane, except all around it.

Here is a picture of a hurricane. You can see the eye, right?
This is what a hurricane can do to a house.

These are some pictures during the destruction. For example, the wind is blowing on these palm trees hard.

And this is another picture of what a hurricane can do to a house. It's ruthless, isn't it?

And here is another picture of a house. The trees and telephone poles are destroyed. No one likes a house tangled in wires.

And another picture of a house. A hurricane can get even worse.
