Hurricanes Typhoons and Cyclones

Parent Category: Natural Disasters
Cyclone is the generic term for a low-pressure system with surface winds spinning in a circular motion. The six main types of cyclones are polar cyclones, polar lows, extratropical cyclones, subtropical cyclones, tropical cyclones, and mesocyclones. When the winds reach speeds of 74 miles per hour, a tropical cyclone might be called a hurricane or typhoon, depending on the region where it formed.
From space the look like sawblades or spiral galaxies with holes in their centers. On the ground they are similar to ordinary storms except there is little or no lightning and the winds are stronger. Severe coastal flooding may result from the storm surge. See the links below for pictures and video.
They do, but most tornadoes don't make international news and generally, the strongest tornadoes that do most of the serious damage occur in the U.S. Hurricanes occur in the southern hemisphere, but are called cyclones or tropical cyclones rather than hurricanes.
no one knows how many people lost there home.
Hurricanes mix up the nutrients in the water and mix oxygen from the atmosphere into the ocean. This affects the microorganisms in the water which affects the whole ocean food chain since they are the bottom of the food chain. They also destroy coral reefs and displace sea animals. Hurricanes also...
As of now yes they are unstoppable but i am sure there will be  certain technolgy later on.
The coriolis force is a consequence of the earth's rotation, and nothing outside of that can influence it.
Because this is the biggest one in our history. A whole country, event hough it's small, is in ruins. There is no infrastructure working or anything. Everything has to be rebuilt from the ground, starting all over. Not even the tsunami whiped out a whole country.
A hurricane cannot be stopped.
run away    Answer:There are recomendations available from local government safety agencys.If you have time do what the warnings on the radio or TV tell you.If you don't you should seek shelter in a basement or other protected area.You should figure out where a good place to shelter is...
A a mid-latitude cyclone is larger by far, typically a few hundred miles across. A tornado is one of the smallest kinds of storm, their size is usually measured in yards rather than miles.
no MN does not get hurrincanes
It can go from lifting shingles on roofs to leveling buildings depending on the strength of the winds.Whole trees can be uprooted and animals can be lifted up and thrown miles away.
In Canada tornadoes are most likely to occur in Saskatchewan,MANITOBA and Ontario.So it does,but these are just Canadian places.No need to worry because they don't happen often...if they do they last around a couple of minutes(or a little longer)and they usually happen around may-august
Formed August 14, 1969 Dissipated August 22, 1969
There are many negative impacts. One is that it releases carbon into the atmosphere, which adds a greenhouse gas. Another is that it alters the water cycle, generally forcing water to run off into one point location, a sewer. It would otherwise be able to seep into the ground and also be transpired...
a tropical cyclone is in the tropics
There isn't really anything that was unique about it. The reason that there is so much talk about Katrina is because of all the devastation that it caused. It sadly hit one of the poorer parts of the USA (New Orleans) making it that much harder for people to rebuild their homes and even lives. In my...
The largest tropical cyclone (the generic term of a hurricane) orecord was Typhoon tip in 1970 at 1,380 miles wide. It was also the most intense tropicl cyclone on record with a minimum central pressure of 870 millibars and sustained winds pf 190 mph.
No it doesnt i lived there for 13 years and was born there. Doesnt have much of anything really.
False. While hurricanes can be very large, mid-latitude cyclones  tend to be larger.
The moon orbits the earth in just a little under 28 days. The earth is blocking sunlight from reaching the moon at certain angles which cause the phases of the moon. Everyone sees the same phases because of this.
When it is in the Pacific Ocean in the northern hemisphere and is west of the International Date Line.
a thunderstorm is just short a typhoon rains and it becames flood
get to a shelter. If it is a small tornado then go to the closet or bathroom and pile clothes, sheets, and blankets on top of you.
After a cyclone has passed, you are advised to stay indoors or in your shelter, waiting for the signal for "all clear" before venturing out. Naturally, once you are outside, you must be aware of the likelihood of fallen power lines. Only go out if it is necessary, as cleanup crews will be working to...
an unusually strong depression gathered over the south of england
910 mb, making it one of the strongest Atlantic hurricanes on record.
The deadliest hurricane in US history, by far, is the Galveston Hurricane of 1900. It killed between 8,000 and 12,000 people, making it the deadliest natural disaster of any kind in the United States.
A cyclone is not necessarily restricted to the Pacific Ocean. Cyclones are also often formed and found in the Indian Ocean, northwest of Australia.'Cyclone' is the generic term for cyclones, hurricanes and typhoons. These tropical storms tend to be called 'cyclones' in the southern hemisphere, and...
A violent rotating windstorm spawned by a thunderstorm is a  tornado.
New Zealand has cyclones rather than hurricanes. They do not generally occur very frequently. The term used for a storm with very strong winds varies depending on where it occurs.    Hurricanes only occur in the Northern Hemisphere, but in the  Southern Hemisphere it is known as Cyclones,...
Yes. The storm surge of Hurricane Katrina completely destroyed  large portions of Biloxi.
No. For one thing, hurricanes form over warm ocean water, not land. Additionally, due to cold ocean currents, any hurricanes that form in the Pacific tend to fall apart before reaching California.
Hurricane Katrina impacted parts of the southern United States in late August of 2005. It formed on August 23, struck Florida on August 25, and made its worst impact in Louisiana and Mississippi on August 29.
the spitfire is slightly faster but the hurricane had bigger guns which might have slowed it down.
  Hi, not sure if you still need the answer to this question, but it was 19-29/12/1971 and it was Cyclone ALTHEA not Athea. You can find more on Cyclone Althea at the national Bureau of Meteorology website: www.bom.gov.au hope this helps.
Cyclone Tracy first hit Darwin just after midnight on 25 December 1974. It continued devastating the city for several hours, before dissipating about 7:00 am the next morning. The eye itself took about 35 minutes to pass. The strongest wind gusts were recorded just after 3:00am.
Cyclone Tracy hit Darwin just after midnight on Christmas Day in 1974 and lasted until about 7:00 am.
No, a hurricane would not form in those conditions. There is not enough breeze to do so, but all of the other factors are favorable for a hurricane to form. The sea temperature has to be about 26oC and the sea temperature is 28oC. Also, the air has to be moist because hurricanes produce lots of...
there was a massive flood. it took a long time to fix the devastation. Even the president at the time, President Bush, was devastated by the damage. the community of New Orleans still stuck together a one
Haiti is a country, not a hurricane. While Haiti has had its fair share of devastating hurricanes, some of them among the worst.
Here are the top five deadliest tropical storms to have hit the U.S. : 1. Great Galveston in the year 1900, killing 8000 people. 2. FL (Lake Okeechobee) in the year 1928, killing 2500 people. 3. Katrina in the year 2005, killing 1833 people. 4. Cheniere Caminanda in the year 1893, killing 1100...
For a hurricane to be classified as such, it must reach a wind  speed of 74 miles per hour. That would make it a category 1. A  category 5 is one with a minimum wind speed of 156 miles per hour.
  Hurricanes get stronger from warm water evaperating into the hurricane causeing higher winds

The Fujita scale is used to classify tornadoes.
  Divergent winds are winds that are moving away from something. Convergent winds are winds that are moving towards something.
Typhoon months starts from July to October.
Tornadoes are generally more violent, but a cyclone will release more energy simply because it is much larger. A cyclone is virtually any large-scale low pressure system with a closed circulation, and is not necessarily severe.
the news tell you that it will happen
It depends on what category it is, for example a category 1 might only blow a small shed over whereas a category 6 might rip apart a whole city.
The 2014 cyclone list of names has 21 names on it. The list is as  follows: Arthur, Bertha, Cristobal, Dolly, Edouard, Fay, Gonzalo,  Hanna, Isaias, Josephine, Kyle, Laura, Marco, Nana, Omar, Paulette,  Rene, Sally, Teddy, Vicky and Wilfred.
  The building codes for buildings today is much tougher then it was in the good old days.

Yes, same as the Atlantic.
wind from multiple directions can create sand dunes, and wind can carry particles of small rocks and dust
i mostly think it's called great red spot but some people called it the big red eye

hurricanes are reaally strongg and powerfull storms that have the power to kill people, searchh hurricane Katrina on wikipedia for examples. they form on the ocean or in other larrge water places at 80 degrees Fahrenheit or more ,
The types of damages occur during hurricane is uproot tree, throw cars, destroy buildings and the deaths of living things such as people, trees, animals, birds ext.

It can reach speeds of about 320 km per hour (almost 200 miles per hour)
The 'Great Red Spot' is a storm raging in the atmosphere of Jupiter and could not 'swallow' Jupiter any more than a storm on earth could swallow the earth.
with a pressure sensor
0.5 days min. -3 days max. due to the fact that they lose energy once they mov off of warm water.
find a basement and know if that a tornado is spotted, you will have already packed food and water in case worst comes to worst. if spotted, get into the basement, listen to the radio, and pray. (by a different person) lolololololololol! so funny. i needed this for my homework and the question was...
Yes. In fact, it's quite obvious that Emily is Homer's killer.She had motive: Homer was about to jilt her and leave town.Opportunity: Homer was last seen alive entering her house, until he was seen dead in the house, on Emily's bed with a lock of her hair on the pillow beside the corpse.Means: She...
Where it hit would flood all around {the cities} and all the people close would more than likely end up dying.

There is only one as a hurricane is a specific type of storm. However there are intenisty categories from category 1 to category 5.
Yes. 2009 was a relatively mild hurricanes season, at least for the Atlantic with 9 tropical storms of which 3 became hurricanes. 2010 was very active with 19 tropical storms of which 12 became hurricanes. 2011 was also active with 19 tropical storms of which 7 became hurricanes. However, a 3 year...
