  3. Did you read the first two paragraphs?

    "Hurricanes are intense low pressure areas that form over warm ocean waters in the summer and early fall. Their source of energy is water vapor which is evaporated from the ocean surface.

    "Water vapor is the "fuel" for the hurricanes because it releases the "latent heat of condensation" when it condenses to form clouds and rain, warming the surrounding air. (This heat energy was absorbed by the water vapor when it was evaporated from the warm ocean surface, cooling the ocean in the process.)"

  4. For one thing, it takes that long for the water in the ocean, Gulf, Caribbean, or wherever to get warm enough to help storms grow.

    Notice the words "warm ocean waters" in the first sentence in the linked webpage Ms. Sue gave you?

    Please read that ENTIRE webpage carefully ... and take good notes.

  5. Yes I read it. I thought that pharagraph was only giving me the answers to the definition of a hurricane and "What's water vapor?" I thought it was not answering my original question.
