Drag the hurricane (red) over the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean and drop it into a circle to find places where sea surface temperature, moisture in the air, and wind conditions will make the storm stronger. Make sure your audio is turned on to hear the feedback. Click the small maps to see how conditions vary across the region.
