Hurricanes form over the Atlantic ocean, turning in a huge circle. When they hit land, they can cause billions of dollars in damage.

To learn more about hurricanes, some scientists fly planes right into the center. That's called the eye of the storm. It's always calm in the eye.

The experts think it will be a busier hurricane season this year than last, with about six hurricanes from now through November.
