Question by EuCitizen: West Africa and hurricanes……?
I saw a hurricane chart or something like that and i saw that a hurricane(s) formed off west Africa and went for the North America..
Could this be why west africa and africa in general are so dry?
all the rain clouds (hurricanes) go to North America? do any Hurrricanes ever land on Africa?

NO, not the reason. It is the heat rising off of the continent and then drifting across the Atlantic. A tropical wave is formed and then heat rising causes the swirling typical of hurricanes.
