November 30

Hurricanes happen when the oceans have been warmed during summer months. In the North Atlantic, hurricane season is from June 1 to November 30, but most hurricanes happen during the fall. As a hurricane's winds spiral around and around the storm, they push water into a mound at the storm's center.

Hurricanes typically occur in certain regions during specific times of the year. To determine when hurricanes happen, you can follow these steps:

1. Identify the hurricane-prone regions: Hurricanes mainly occur in tropical and subtropical regions around the world. Some of the most active areas include the Atlantic Ocean (including the Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico), the Eastern Pacific Ocean, and the Western Pacific Ocean (including the South China Sea).

2. Determine the hurricane seasons: Each region has a defined hurricane season during which the conditions are most favorable for hurricane formation. Here are some general timelines:
- Atlantic Ocean: The hurricane season runs from June 1st to November 30th, with the peak activity occurring between August and October.
- Eastern Pacific Ocean: The hurricane season typically begins on May 15th and ends on November 30th. The peak activity occurs from July to September.
- Western Pacific Ocean: The typhoon season lasts all year, but the peak activity varies by region. For example, in the Northwest Pacific region (including the Philippines and Japan), the peak is from August to October.

3. Seek authoritative sources: To get the most accurate and up-to-date information about hurricane activity, consult official sources such as the National Hurricane Center (for the Atlantic and Eastern Pacific), Japan Meteorological Agency (for Western Pacific), or your local meteorological agency for regional information.

Remember that while these timelines offer general guidance, the actual occurrence and intensity of hurricanes can vary from year to year. It is crucial to stay informed by monitoring official weather forecasts and heeding evacuation warnings if you are in a hurricane-prone area.
