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.

Hurricanes that hit the US are formed over the Atlantic Ocean by the warm water off the tropical west coast of Africa. The warm water warms the air above it.

Typhoons start off as tropical thunderstorms. The strong winds pull in moisture from the oceans. The thunderstorms convert the moisture into heat. The heat causes more air to flow to the center of the storm which causes more evaporation. All the heat and air flow toward the eye creating the typhoon.
