The Correct Answer:

B. The atmospheric pressure increases towards the eye of hurricanes are false.

Explanation:

Hurricanes are natural disasters with a high possibility of losing life and property. This is also known as a tropical cyclone and occurs due to the rapidly rotating Storms system having a low-pressure center, strong winds, and low-level atmospheric circulation. Hurricanes can strike anywhere and take any form. In the middle of the Hurricane, the wind speed is very low, which creates a very high pressure afterward. The strongest winds associated with hurricanes are in the eyeball surrounding the eye, which rotates in the counterclockwise direction in the Northern hemisphere.

Few of the regions have a very high probability of hitting without any warning and can stay for multiple days or even weeks. Incident management departments have several members that have the capability to coordinate and make an effective plan to prevent the life of people and animals and move them to a safe location. So it becomes vital for the incident managers to manage their particular team properly and communicate with them to achieve a common mission of the organization. The atmospheric pressure increases towards the eye of a hurricane is a false statement.
