What would its name be?
Examine the map below, which has two arrows that show two possible tracks for the eye of this hurricane.
Which hurricane track (#1 or #2) would produce the worst possible situation for Tampa, FL in terms of
storm surge and wind damage? Please explain why in one or two sentences. (Tampa’s distance from both
tracks is exactly the same.)
