Most hurricanes that hit the US come from the same exact spot in the world

  • Hurricanes
    that hit the US East
    Coast
    and Caribbean
    islands tend to follow a similar course.
  • That’s because most come from the same place in the
    world. 
  • There’s a point off the coast of West Africa near Cape
    Verde where dry, hot air from the Sahara desert meets with the
    cool, moist air from the south. 
  • These powerful winds are known as the African Easterly
    Jet.
