The Parts of a Hurricane
Most hurricanes are about 300 miles wide, but some can be bigger or smaller. All hurricanes have the same basic parts. The center of the hurricane is called the “eye“. Inside the eye, the weather is nice and quiet. Around the eye is a circle of clouds and rain called the “eye wall“. The winds in the eye wall are very strong. Around the eye wall, there are many bands of rain called “feeder bands“.
