The Atlantic Ocean’s hurricane season peaks from mid-August to late October and averages five to six hurricanes per year. Did you know that cyclones and hurricanes derive their energy from warm ocean surfaces with temperatures of over 26°C.
There has been more debates over the past decade on the impact of global warming and climate change on the numbers and intensity of hurricanes and clycones.
Hurricane Sandy, a late-season post-tropical cyclone, swept through the Caribbean and up the East Coast of the United States in late October 2012.
At one point, Sandy's hurricane-force winds (at least 74 mph) extended up to 175 miles (280 kilometers) from its center and tropical storm-force winds (39 mph) out to 485 miles (780 km).

Hurricane Olga, another late-in-the-year storm, set the record in 2001, with tropical-force winds extending 600 miles (965 km).
