Hurricane - MSN Encarta (1296 words)
Hurricanes, typhoons, and cyclones usually “recurve” in the direction of either the South Pole in the Southern Hemisphere or the North Pole in the Northern Hemisphere.
Although the hurricane death toll steadily declined in the United States during the 20th century and at the start of the 21st century, the costs of damage soared as coastal populations grew and the value of property outstripped population growth.
Before Hurricane Katrina, the costliest U.S. natural disaster was Hurricane Andrew, which hit the Miami, Florida, metropolitan area in 1992, causing $26.5 billion in damages, including both insured and uninsured losses.
