    Scientists: Oh shit, a hurricane! Let’s go drop a nuclear bomb in the eye of the storm from space.
    *Goes to space*
    *Drops bomb*
    Scientists: There we go! We saved tons of lives!
    *Goes back to earth*
    *Goes to see the city they just “saved”*
    *everything is destroyed by bomb*
    *12000 Lives taken. 14000 people injured*

    This is very incorrect. They are talking about energy released by hurricane over a days time. A 50 megaton bomb releases the energy in a tiny split second, burning up all the oxygen in the process and causing a vacuum, I believe a 50 megaton bomb would neutralize a smaller to medium hurricane. The energy released by a hurricane in the same amount of time as the nuke is a tiny fraction. This has to be taken into account, simple physics.

    Just evacuate a Hurricane. Plain and Simple. Especially if you’re close to water. What makes a Hurricane lethal isn’t just the wind but the Surge of Water. That’s why Katrina was so deadly was her 30 plus foot storm surge on the Mississippi Coast. New Orleans however, they were on the weaker side of the storm but levees “Failed”.

    Thumbs down only because this guy thinks he’s a professional or something. His voice is so annoying because he deliberately tries to make himself sound like “Mr. Commentator”. Dude, just do the same thing but speak in your “natural normal” voice. You don’t have to sound that way to be good. Just loose the “radio announcer voice” please. Otherwise it’s a good video

    Even if we could disrupt these storms, it would not be advisable. Since tropical cyclones help regulate the earth's temperature, any decrease in tropical cyclone intensity would mean the oceans retain more heat.

    Over time, the build-up of heat could possibly enhance subsequent storms and lead to more numerous and/or stronger events.

    imagine deciding to live and build cities in a place that constantly gets hit by hurricanes.. blows my mind as someone from a place in europe that doesn't get hit by any weird weather. Why would they settle in a place where they constantly risk having to rebuild? I'm not talking about you specifically living there as I know you were born into it, but I mean the oldies that started building certain places.
