A hurricane is a violent tropical storm with sustained winds of at least 74 mph. It forms over warm ocean waters. Warm and moist air moves towards the center of the storms and spirals upward. This releases torrential rains. As updrafts suck up more water vapor, it triggers a cycle of strengthening. This cycle can be stopped only one contact is made with land or cooler water.
The whole hurricane can be described as a giant wheel lying on its side. The hurricane spins and moves across the Earth’s surface at a speed of between 15 and 30 km/hour. When a hurricane approaches, the wind rises swiftly, sometimes reaching speeds of 160 km/hour or more. Wind blows inward towards an area of low pressure, by travelling in a spiral due to the Earth’s rotation. When the hurricane strikes, houses maybe blown down, trees uprooted, crops damaged, and widespread flooding may also occur.
Hurricane is known by different name in other parts of the world. In the bay of Bengal and the Arabian sea, they are called cyclones. While for those in Japan, the Philippines, and the coast of China, hurricanes are called typhoons.

I am very sorry for this late reply. I arrived three days ago after a journey that took about ten hours. I used every type of transportations I could think of. First, I got a taxi to the airport, then a plane to Heatrow airport. After that I took a bus to London and finally got myself in a train to Oxford! I slept for twelve hours on the first night because I was so tired.
I started my English lesson the day after I arrived. The school is in the center of the town. There are twelve people in my class, and I am the only Indonesian person so I speak English all the time. The family I am staying with is nice and I am not sharing a bedroom, so I am quite happy.
I am going to London on Sunday. I will send you a post card of your favourite place, Buckingham Palace.
