Although scientists don’t know exactly how or why a hurricane forms, they do know that a hurricane requires water temperatures of at least 79 degrees Fahrenheit. The Baja California peninsula, including the resort area of Cabo San Lucas, was struck by Hurricane Odile earlier this week.
A hurricane warning was also in effect from Cab Rojo to La Pesca, meaning that hurricane conditions where expected in that area within 36 hours. They said they expected Dolores to strengthen further over the next 24 hours.Last September, parts of Baja California were destroyed when Hurricane Odile swept through the region. NASA can see the formation of hurricanes with the use of satellites that take pictures from space. A category one hurricane features winds of up to 95 miles per hour and does the least damage. Ingrid was expected to strengthen further before making landfall as it makes a turn toward the northwest today followed by a shift toward the West by early Monday.

In the Pacific, the NHC said that Tropical Storm Manuel, also carrying the potential for life-threatening flash floods, should be a hurricane when it makes landfall today near the southwestern Mexican coast.
The US National Hurricane Center warned that they could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.
Named for Huracan, the Carib god of evil, the hurricane is an amazing yet destructive natural phenomenon that occurs about 40 to 50 times worldwide each year. Over time, this current draws moisture and warmth into the upper levels of the atmosphere, creating the rotational engine that drives a tropical storm or hurricane.
