    All hurricanesform from a cluster of thunderstorms called a tropical wave. In the Atlantic, most tropical waves originate off the coast of Africa or in the Gulf of Mexico. In the Pacific, these waves originate off the coast of Central America and Mexico. However, these waves can develop in all the oceans of the tropics. When these waves being to organize themselves into a swirl, they become tropical depressions. These depressions carry top sustained winds, wind lasting more than one minute, of 35 miles per hour.
