Hurricanes are the most violent storm on the Earth, according to NASA. At heart, Hurricanes are fueled by just two elements: heat and water. Hurricanes are seeded over the warm waters above the equator, where the air above the ocean's surface takes in heat and moisture. Considering the recent trends, hurricanes have become a much rapid phenomenon of the world.
Frequent hurricanes have become new normal for the world. It’s not been even a year now and there are already more than 40 hurricanes that have shown their devastating nature by taking tolls of the human lives, animals, as well as to the property. Very recently, hurricane Irma smashed into Florida so soon after Hurricane Harvey flooded southeastern Texas. The stories of hurricanes are becoming more recurrent than it ever had.
Taking hurricanes seriously is the present need of hour. So in the present scenario we need to focus entirely on cutting off our lifestyle in which all the things which we use for comfort and luxury should be sacrificed for the sake of environment.

Coming on the rationale behind the rapid hurricanes, it is clear that as sea levels continue to rise due to global warming, they’re increasing the risk of storm surge. This storm surge causes dangerously high floods that push water onshore. As a result this proves much damage particularly in the coastal areas.
