With lots of cleanup still taking place in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, and with Hurricanes Irma, Jose, and Katia hot on its heels, there is understandably a lot of talk about hurricanes in the news.

Thankfully, Ginger Zee from ABC News is here to tell us all of the science behind hurricanes in a way that makes sense.

If you’re in the path of one of these hurricanes, please stay safe.
