    The "Nuke a hurricane" idea always seemed loony to me from the standpoint of basic thermodynamics. A hurricane is fueled by heat. A nuclear detonation gives off a bunch of heat. Sooo, let's give the hurricane more fuel...great idea!! But wait, there is more...now you have a radioactive hurricane. Awesome idea!!!

    wouldn't nuking a hurricane also cause a tsunami several hundred meters tall that would cause even more damage in addition to the hurricane possibly getting stronger from being nuked? I'm a Katrina survivor btw, in 2005 that storm did so much damage it turned coastal Mississippi into a desolate wasteland there was nothing left standing it looked like a Fallout game the damage was so bad

    A nuclear explosion creates a giant, sudden airburst that should disrupt the air circulation all together in any hurricane.
    So, it's not so outlandish.
    Truth, no one really knows what could happen but it would be worth of try.
    Use non radiation nuke.

    Or just live underground as a coward.

    You don't have to match the daily energy output to stop a hurricane, the amount of energy a hurricane produces in a day is only relevant in the sense that it gives you a read of the current strength, a temporary disruption is all you need hurricanes operate like a weather reactor powered by thermal transfers, any disruption could theoretically kill the energy mechanism, obviously don't nuke it but if nukes did work it wouldn't take that many you just need to match the energy momentarily, and hydrogen bombs most certainly do that energy in spades.
    Also you should have said that hydrogen bombs are literally tens of thousands times stronger than Hiroshima atomic fission bomb they aren't even comparable not even close few kilotons atomic weapon versus most hydrogen Fusion bombs around 25 Megatons plus or minus 10 Megatons usually some people don't understand that hydrogen bombs are much stronger than fission
    (A bombs) and you presented the info one after the other implying hiroshima bombs are relevant in said scenario in a purposely misleading way

      it's impossible to do that because tornadoes can appear and vanish long before a nuke launches, and even if by sheer BS you manage to nuke the tornado, congrats, you just fucked up more shit that the tornado would've in the first place.

    I would rather suggest a more thermodynamic approach to the problem. Hurricanes are basically heat engines that uses the ocean / sea as a heat source and the part of an upper atmosphere as a cold sink. In order to stop the working of a heat engine, one has 2 option: disassemble the working body, or nullify (or even invert) the temperature difference between the heat source and the cold sink.
    One interesting things about hurricanes is that their working body is completely made of the working substance. In that sense the "working body" of a hurricane is basically the flow field of the substance of the hurricane.

    Exploding big nukes under the eye of a hurricane wouldn't do much good, because it won't have the yield to permanently disrupt its flow field, because it has too much momentum, but it will temporarily increase the temperature of the heat source, thus boosting the hurrricane.
    Directly trying to disrupt the flow field of a hurricane via bomb blast is an very difficult task, because one has study the flow field of a hurricane in order to be able to point out possibly exploitable "weaknesses".

    The simpler solution to the problem would be to articifially heat up the upper the localized part of the upper atmosphere, that the hurricane uses as cold sink, to a much higher temperature then the sea water. This will not only cut off the hurricane from its energetic supply, but it will drain its energy (as if we replaced the heat source and cold sink on an already working heat engine). So if one manages to do this for enough long time, then the hurricane will slowly loses its momentum, and bleed out.
    The problem is in the quantities. We don't know how much is the volume of it's heat sink that uses, and how much nuclear power required to keep the cold sink hotter then the sea, and of course how long do we have to keep the cold sink hotter then the heat source.
    However, if this solution is achievable, then it would be far more gentler solution, then just blast away the whole hurricane, and exploding nuclear warheads in the upper atmosphere would cause much less fall out on the earth, because the majority of the radioactive wast would fly out into space.
