According to NASA’s research scientists, hurricanes that hit the Atlantic coasts are born in storm systems off the west coast of Africa which is identical to the route of the transatlantic slave trade. Hurricanes cannot form just anywhere in the world due to the need for hot and humid air. They normally form close to the equator and move west or northwest in a path called Hurricane Alley which is a stretch of warm water through the Atlantic Ocean from the west coast of Africa to the coast of Central America.
