Our data showed that the angle at which a hurricane makes contact with the land determines the occurrence of tornadoes.

It should be noted here that the quality of Doppler radar allows us to detect tornadoes more accurately.

We also found out that hurricanes closer to the shore spawn more tornadoes, where as those farther inland spawned off fewer tornadoes. The reason for this is that water makes hurricanes stronger, thus giving them the ability for more destruction. A hurricane that stays out in the ocean is most likely to last longer.
