yes they can and sometimes hurricanes get stronger when they travel on water.
Hurricanes are atmospheric phenomena. They move over land as they do over the oceans. However when they come over land, their source of energy is cut off so they lose their force.
No. Hurricanes weaken as they pas over land.
Hurricanes weaken when they move over land.
Nothing. Hurricanes can't form over land.
Hurricanes typically travel at 10-20 mph and rarely maintain hurricane status for more than a few hours over land.
Cyclones die out on land because there is no more warm ocean water to fuel it. Usually hurricanes don't hit land, but if they do hit, they die after landfall. However, some hurricanes continued to travel for days over land.
No. Hurricanes rapidly lose strength when they go over land.
Hurricanes are not over land, but water.
It isn't. Hurricanes lose strength when they go over land.
No, hurricanes start over warm water.
Hurricanes do not form over land or over cold ocean water.
No. Hurricanes (also called tropical cyclones) form over warm water and dissolve over land.
Hurricanes get their energy from moist air. They originate in over oceans as the water evaporates. Hurricanes eventually die out when they travel over land or cooler waters, where their water vapor source is cut off to fuel the storm.
The average tornado lasts about 10 minutes, but durations may range anywhere from just a few seconds to over three hours. Hurricanes usually last several days, and can last as long as a month, however hurricanes spend nearly all of their time over open ocean, not land. A hurricane will weaken rapidly and dissipate if it moves over land.
Hurricanes weaken either when they move over land or colder water.
Hurricanes develop over warm ocean water. Tornadoes usually form over land.
They travel long distances by receiving their energy from the warm water, and as they travel over warm water, (such as the Gulf of Mexico) they gain speed and strength. They then travel over land with this energy, until it runs out, and the hurricane's power diminishes.
Hurricanes weaken rapidly over land.
No. Hurricanes start over water and tornadoes are on land.
Tornados can form over land, but hurricanes only form over the ocean.
Hurricanes develop over warm ocean water while tornadoes usually form over land.
Hurricanes use the warm moist ocean air as an energy source so as soon as it hits land the moist air is no longer there. Although hurricanes lose energy over land, they still do devastating amounts of damage.
No. While hurricanes often occur in August and September, they form over the ocean, not over land.
