Hurricane «Maria» appeared on September 16 this year, when over the Atlantic there was another tropical cyclone began to absorb thermal energy from the sea. The next day there was a powerful storm, which quickly grew to a hurricane of the fifth category of danger, and it was extremely powerful for its strength, surpassing «Irma».
