Find Out Fast! What is the Eye of a Hurricane?
The eye of the storm is actually the center of the hurricane’s circulation, much like the hub of a wheel. Hurricane force winds precede the eye as it approaches, then winds may die down as the eye passes. The eye is often calm, and it may even be sunny during the day. It may seem like the storm is over. However, after the eye passes, the winds will change direction and quickly return to hurricane force.
