“A fascinating characteristic of hurricanes is the calm eye found at the center of the storm. In the eye, there can be blue sky and a light breeze. Surrounded by high wind and pelting rain, the eye is a spot of relative serenity in stark contrast to the destructive forces that whirl around it.

Newell
