Meet Hurricane Irma

Two days living in the path of Hurricane Irma, one of the strongest Atlantic hurricanes on record, during September 2017. We explain the power unleashed by these monster storms, the incredibly active 2017 hurricane season, the 1900 Galveston Hurricane which claimed thousands of lives, the technology involved in predicting hurricanes, interpreting National Hurricane Center charts, how Florida buildings have become much stronger, the physics of how wind destroys home – and how to protect them.

Irma Makes Landfall

Hurricane Irma makes landfall in Barbuda, one of the Leeward Islands, and nearly wipes it off the map. What does this mean for the residents of more populous areas?

Wind Speeds To Move You

It's pretty hard to look outside and guess how fast the air is moving, or know how much wind is too much wind.

The Ingredients of a Hurricane

What makes a hurricane form? How long do they last? What's it like running from one?

Tropical cyclones are some of the most powerful natural disasters, unleashing the energy of multiple atomic bombs every second. Depending on where they form, they can be known as hurricanes, typhoons, or simply cyclones. Learn how cyclones form, where their energy comes from, and how humans can affect them.

Love the idea! Would never have thought of creating a museum about hurricanes.
