A single hurricane can cover a huge number of square miles and have internal breezes from 74 to more than 155 miles for every hour. Hurricanes are known as the “greatest storms on earth,” and their devastation goes past mere wind destruction, as storm soars and consequent flooding have represented a significant number of the catastrophic events on this planet. Hurricanes have obviously existed since the end of the last ice age, yet their effect on people has expanded uniquely with the development of populace in the beachfront territories hit by these storms. The marine condition is likewise affected by tropical storms, affecting close shore water quality. Fuel from harmed vessels can release into the water body for a considerable length of time. Regularly, corals and other marine life forms can seriously be affected.

3.1.1. Rising equator-versus-pole temperature difference
The principle source driving the world’s atmospheric framework including the wind is solar radiation. Through a cycle of radiation retention and re-emission, the atmosphere and the surface beneath exchange energy. Worldwide mean annual computations exhibit that the earth’s surface has excess radiation whilst the atmosphere turn up less. Analysis has shown that abundant radiation exists in the tropical regions; shortage over the poles in the higher latitudes. The imbalance of the north-south poles leads to the common circulation of the natural system of ocean and air currents. The disparity between the warm origins and the cold sink tends to only increase with global warming (Maliekal, 2018) leading to an increase in birth of energy transfer mechanism, called hurricanes.
3.1.2. Increased humidity and hurricane intensity
With water vapor further being the fuel for storms, global warming creates an atmosphere more loaded with humidity; coupled with increasing heating of ocean water surfaces, both have the ability to increase the intensity of tropical storms, as seen in many parts of Europe, North America and Australia (Extreme Weather, 2014). Coral reefs of north Jamaica, regularly shielded, were seriously harmed by Hurricane Allen, the most powerful Caribbean typhoon of this century (Woodley et al. 1981). Bhola cyclone of 1970, is recorded as the deadliest storm, killing at least three thousand people. A typhoon in Vietnam in November 1997, recorded 1,100 deaths (Stewart et al. 2013).
The biggest reason for death and pulverization in a hurricane originates from the ascent of the oceans and seas in a storm soar, due to a drop in atmospheric pressure adrift level inside the hurricane. As the hurricane passes across mainland retires and moves to the coastal areas, the water level expands 15 to 20 feet. The power of the decreased pressure enables the hurricane to suck up oceans and to permit the breezes before it to heap up the water against the coastline. This outcome in a surge of water can be up to twenty feet-high and fifty-to-one-hundred miles wide, clearing over the coastline where the hurricane makes landfall. The blend of shallow shore water and solid storm twists makes for the most astounding flood of water (Stewart et al. 2013).
3.1.3. High winds
The type of winds can range from low, temperate, intense to highly devastating. The high winds are caused due to instability in atmosphere resulting from vertical movements of air, together with unsettling flow disruption around surface hindrance which make low- and moderate-level winds extremely erratic. Though low and temperate winds are beneficial for pollution, the latter two can be intensely pernicious for infrastructure. High winds lead to damage of low-rise buildings and high-rise buildings prolonged to extended vibratory motions threaten the structure and safety of occupants hence. Besides infrastructure, high winds cause immense harm each year to various enterprises including development, afforestation, wind energy and others (Aly, 2014).
