However, if you head towards the Atlantic or Indian Ocean, there is a small chance that you will end up in a hurricane during this period.
What is a hurricane season?
Every year, there are a few months when hurricanes can occur. During these months, the sea is warm enough to collide with the cold wind from the north and form a hurricane. We call this the hurricane season. Hurricanes only occur on the warm sea, so if you are traveling to the Atlantic or Indian Ocean, make sure to look up hurricane season. Feel free to enjoy the sun during this season, but also listen to the locals.
