A hurricane is basically a tropical cyclone. This is a rotating storm system with a low pressure in the centre and strong winds spiralling around it and producing heavy wind and rains. These days they can be detected fairly early and are often given names.

What to do when a hurricane is impending.g> This will depend on the category but it is very simple and very basic. With a category One and possibly Two depending on the structure of your home, you can usually sit it out. Three and above means it is wise to leave the area. Considerable damage and flooding can cause homes to be washed away. Evacuating the area is the most sensible course of action. Emergency Services will usually be alerted and their directions should be followed.

If you live in a hurricane prone area you would likely have some experience and be aware of what needs to be done. If not then these notes may be of value to you in the event that a hurricane or cyclone does appear on your doorstep.
