    Hurricanes are cyclones that form in the Atlantic and Eastern Pacific Oceans, they have tropical characteristics to them (winds ranging from 120km to 350km/hour) including heavy precipitation.

    Line storms are usually squall line storms, that are typically associated with a cold front on a low pressure system in the NH! Typically in line storms, rain fall is minimual, due the speed the line travels at. The main aspect to these types of storms, are high winds that can go upwards of 100 km/hour, most winds are considered "straight line", usually they come in from the west, and slice fast and furious as the storm line races west-to-east.
