Episode 19 - Living with Hurricanes

What's the difference between a hurricane, a typhoon, and a tropical cyclone? When do hurricanes occur and how do they form? Is there a classification system for hurricanes? What is a ‘medicane’? What is it like living with hurricanes? In our latest podcast Prof Liz Bentley, Chief Executive at the Royal Meteorological Society answers these questions and more. She also speaks to fellow RMetS staff member Juan Estrella Martinez about his experiences growing up with the threat, and reality, of hurricane season in Puerto Rico.  Liz also spoke to the Guardian recently on their ‘Today in Focus’ podcast where she discussed the destructive force of Hurricane Dorian, which has battered the Bahamas and is on course to hit the US states of Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina. Listen to her interview from minute 25 here.  Find out more about hurricanes on our website here.
