It’s hurricane season. And if you live on the Atlantic Coast, like gogblog, you sometimes get to wondering. . . What gives birth to these giant storms? How do tropical storms grow into hurricanes? Why do some fade early, while others reach category 5?

Watch this colorful and dynamic Goddard TV web short to get the answers: 27 Storms: Arlene to Zeta. It looks back on the destructive 2005 hurricane season — the one that gave us Katrina and the New Orleans catastrophe. The season birthed an astounding 27 named storms, beating 1933’s record of 21 nameable storms.
