Comments and Additional Information

  1. Are there ever hurricanes in Ukraine?

    Reply
    • I’m no expert on climate but I believe hurricanes certain conditions to form that are only present in large bodies of water such as the Atlantic and Pacific. Kiev certainly doesn’t have hurricanes. I recall Odessa has experienced a few fairly serious storms, but I doubt they could be classified as hurricanes.

    • No. Only tropical heat, humidity and open water make a hurricane. It feeds off all three and travels thousands of miles to build its strength. Once it hits land it weaken and becomes pouring rain that sits and usually floods out the coast.
