However, Mother Nature is somewhat more unpredictable than most mothers-in-law. Unlike some of her other tricks, such as violent, out-of-nowhere tornadoes and sneaky earthquakes, hurricanes build slowly and pick up speed. Using modern technology, forecasters are able to predict and track them to a certain degree but even the most up-to-the-minute devices aren't perfect. Impossible as it is to say with one hundred percent certainty exactly where they will hit, at least the National Hurricane Center is able to issue advance warning to those in harms way.
