Hurricanes are created by low pressure systems, specifically centered around the "Eye of the Hurricane"!
The "eye" has winds rotating between 75mph and 150mph!
A nuclear weapon detonated inside the "eye" will create an OVERBURST pressure SHOCK WAVE that travels outwards at the speed of sound [760mph aprox]
and that has an average over burst pressure of upwards of 10psi per square meter of surface area at 5miles range with a 10Mton nuke! This may
internally disrupt a very SMALL hurricane.
Surely this can be simulated and we can be shown the affects of this VISUALLY so there is no longer any ambiguity to the matter!
And thats just if we 'nuke' the "eye of the hurricane" ... we can of course try other approaches!
Such as shaped nuclear charges that can direct 90% of the blast in ONE direction and maybe that could be used to drive a shockwave wedge through the
eye of the hurricane!
Clearly this is just trying to prevent civilian use of nukes [which reduces the amount of nukes they have available for wars etc!].
Personal Disclosure: Forget the hurricanes ... they are JUST a bit too BIG .... Go After the Tropical Storms ok!
