Braving the Eye of the Storm. [NOAA] The most dangerous part of the hurricane is the eye-wall close to the ocean. It's where the storm draws energy from heat in the water, which influences how strong – and how quickly – the storm will develop. It's also where the strongest winds lurk.
Regarding this, is the eye of the storm safe?
The eye of the storm is the only peaceful part of the hurricane. Getting through the eye wall is the dangerous part, as is exiting the eye, again through the eye wall. The lower the central pressure, the fiercer the storm, and the higher the winds - nevertheless, the eye is calm and peaceful.
Also, is the eye of a storm the calmest part?
On land, the center of the eye is, by far, the calmest part of the storm, with skies mostly clear of clouds, wind and rain. Over the ocean, however, it's possibly the most dangerous: inside, waves from all directions slam into each other, creating monster waves as tall as 130 feet (40 meters).
How long does the eye of the storm last?
How long the eye takes to pass over you depends on the size of the eye and the speed at which the storm is moving (not the speed of the wind). So if the eye is 20 miles wide, the storm is moving at 10 miles an hour and the center passes right over you, it will take about two hours for the eye to pass.
Can you survive in the eye of a tornado?
The Eye, Calm and the Very strong winds and rain again. Many people survive the first two parts of the tornado, and some get trapped into staying out in the eye too long and they can't get back to a suitable shelter until the full storm has passed.
