hurricanes and fresh water

So
if a hurricane scoops up lots of salty ocean water..then deposits tons of fresh water as rain back upon the ocean or the coast as it makes its landfall.....where did the salt go?

If you are talking about a tidal surge than the salt water is absorbed by the ground. After Hurricane Rita hit South Louisiana most of the farm land & land used for cattle grazing along the coast was useless for a while due to salt water intrusion.

Hurricanes don't scoop up tons of water. They push it to land in a tidal surge, in which case the ground gets the salt. There is also a lot of rain, but that water comes from evaporation prior to the hurricane's passing.

When water evaporates to become water vapor the salt that was dissolved in it remains in the ocean. So any water "scooped up" by a hurricane to eventually become rain has no salt in it.

yeah me to



it was a thought, tidal surges are salty yes
but the huge amounts of rain is fresh, the salt is removed by evaporation during the cycle of ocean water gathering with the existing storm clouds

i was reading the amount of sea salt is HUGE that is removed during a hurricane, but the actually increase in salinity to surrounding ocean water is almost negligible
so where does this matter go? no one knows

Water turns to a gas and feeds the storm clouds leaving the salt behind.*

It's sorta like when an Irishman eats a Mexican Burrito. The Burrito turns to a gas and is expelled causing widespread devastation.

*see Water Phase Change-Wikipedia
