Hurricanes form over warm water because it warms and moistens the air above it. This warm, moist ocean air is essentially the fuel of a hurricane. When a tropical disturbance, the precursor to a hurricane, lifts this air it cools and the moisture in it condenses, releasing enormous amounts of energy.
