Hurricane originally is derived from the word “Huracan,” which means god of evil in parts of Central America. They have four growth stages starting with formation, tropical depression, tropical storm and finally hurricane. These stages are useful for meteorologists and storm chasers when categorizing the level of danger posed by a storm. Unlike tornadoes, hurricanes form over bodies of water and lose most of their power once they come in contact with land.
