Let’s Nuke a Hurricane!
The energy released by a small nuclear explosion is far higher than the energy released by a large hurricane. The top winds of a category 5 hurricane are around 250 M.P.H. The top wind speed created by a small nuclear explosion exceed the speed of sound. Even small nuclear explosions make the Earths atmosphere hotter than the center of the Sun. Reinforced concreted buildings usually survive large hurricanes. However, the static overpressure of the winds created by a small nuclear explosion shatter solid rock and twist hardened steel.
Hurricanes must have very cold cloud tops in order to maintain their power and structure. Also high speed winds above a hurricane will shear the cloud tops in the thunderstorms of a hurricane. The shearing will damage the hurricanes structure and weaken them. Therefore detonating a thermonuclear device above a hurricane will shear and heat the cloud tops. This will almost certainly weaken if not destroy a hurricane.
