hurricanes have nothing to do with earthquakes. they occur when the water surface temperature on the open ocean reaches a high of at least 81 degrees. evaporating rapidly they form a concentrate cloud and rain.
in 1494 during his second voyage, christopher columbus sheltered his fleet from an unbelievable massive storm. this was the first written european account of a hurricane. the origins of the name hurricane into western language comes from the indians of guatemala who called these massive storms “huri-can”. it should be noted that the term ‘hurican’ was derived from the mayan god “hurakan”, one of their creator gods, who blew his breath across the chaotic water and brought forth dry land and later destroyed the men of wood with a great storm and flood. beware all men of wood in new york. by dd
