I checked out the meaning of the word "ouragan." Now I know why the negativity. Here's the answer:
furacan, huracan, uracan, XVIe et déb. XVIIe; esp. huracan «tornade», mot caraïbe.
Hurricane : from Spanish huracán, borrowed from Taino (an Arawakan language originally spoken in the Bahamas) hurákan "center of the wind" from hura "wind" + kán "center," akin to Arawakan kulakani "thunder." Today's word may have also been influenced by Hurakan, the ancient Mayan god...
