Africa, like the other continents, is the product of continental drift. At an earlier period in the Earth's history, there was only one continent, known as Pangaea, and this broke up and formed the continents as we know them today, as a result of the force exerted on the crust by currents in the underlying magma of the mantle. The whole process is essentially random. The shape of Africa is an accident.

Hurricane Sandy originated as a tropical disturbance that first developed over Africa and was carried by the Trade Winds to the Caribbean. There, the water was warm and there was relatively little wind shear, which allows the system to develop into a hurricane.
The Himalayas are formed from a continental to continental plate convergence.
Yes. Approximately 270-240 million years ago, the continental crusts of ancestral North America and ancestral Africa collided into each other and formed the Appalachian Mountains.
The Appalachians were formed by layers of sedimentary rock uplifting and folding. Basically North America collided with Europe and Northern Africa.
The Himalayas were formed by two landmasses colliding in a continental-continental collision.
Hurricanes are low pressure systems that develop off of the coast of Africa, building size and strength that carry west towards the Caribbean.
Yes Both Laurasia and Gondwana were formed by continental drift
How are the continental plants formed and how are they eventually destroyed ? (AS 1)
Continental glaciers are thicker and larger. Valley glaciers are formed on mountains; continental glaciers are formed on flat land.
The Himalayas were formed by the collision of the Eurasian plate (continental) and the Indo-Australian plate (continental).
