Here’s an interesting video for anybody who is more science-minded. They took the hurricanes of the past however many years and compare them to each other.
It’s interesting that some of the more dangerous storms weren’t necessarily the biggest, then again, some of the huge ones were very bad like Sandy for example.
The videographers make a special note that we’ll pass on: “he size indicated here is the maximum diameter based on Meteorologist calculations (Sourced from National Hurricane Center, National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration & NASA, or own mapping estimates based on images if no official figures are given. It is not entirely accurate, but it gives a good scale of the sizes of certain tropical storms.”
They also go on to say that hurricanes rotate counter clockwise and cyclones rotate counter-clockwise, so don’t pay too much attention to the way they’re actually spinning when you’re only looking to compare the sizes of these hurricanes. It’s just meant to provide a visual representation and not be 100% scientifically accurate.
