What are the reasons hurricanes are so badly damaging?

As well as winds, rainstorms and floods start serious damages inside and outside your home, hurricanes are more destructive even.

Winds are so fast, storm surge push the water up onto the shore, and extreme rainfall of about six inches of rain may fall per hour.

Hurricanes are categorized in five different levels according to Saphir-Simpson scale. Level 1 hurricanes are of 74 to 95 mph speed; surge produced at this levels are of 4-5 feet; they occasion some damages at home and in streets and power outages last couples of days. Level 2 winds range between 96-110 mph with a surge between 6-8 feet; at this level damages are extensive and domestic damages are major, characterized by snapped trees; electrical outage lasts for weeks.

The speed at level 3 goes beyond the 111 mph and reaches till 129 mph; at this level surges reach 12 feet and damages at home and trees are major. Meanwhile levels 4 and 5 have catastrophic results; speed at level 4 might reach 156 mph and at level 5 more than 157 mph; surge are of more than 13 feet and damages last from weeks to months (in level 5).

There are some areas that are more susceptible to hurricanes, especially the area of the Gulf and Caribbean are ideal for hurricane development. Period of hurricane is from June 1st to November 30th; but the most dangerous period is from mid-August to mid-October.
