If heat released by an average hurricane in one day could be converted to electricity, it could supply United States' electrical needs for about six months.
The heat energy released in a single day can equal energy released by fusion of four hundred 20-megaton hydrogen bombs.
As it travels across ocean, a hurricane may pick up as much as two billion tons of water each day through evaporation and sea spray.
Some two million metric tons of air are circulated in, up and out of hurricane each second.
