Hurricane season runs from June to November when warm tropical waters feed energy to storm systems moving from east to west across the Atlantic Ocean. Hurricanes and Tropical Storms bring strong winds, heavy rains, powerful waves, and high tides. These forces cause flooding and erosion, and can dramatically change island ecosystems from mountain forests to coral reefs in a few hours, and it may take many years for an island to recover from storm damage.
