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.
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 becertain 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.
When Hurricane Katrina occurred people in the area lost manythings. They lost homes, personal possessions, cars, and even theirloved ones.
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 before...
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
Cyclones generally do not have a rapid forward speed. Most of thetime, the progression of a cyclone or hurricane is about 20 to 25miles per hour.
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.
Hurricanes don't contain elements - only water and water vapor.
False. While hurricanes can be very large, mid-latitude cyclonestend 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...
No , Aruba doesn't get hurricanes. It's on the southern fringes of the traditional Atlantic Caribbean hurricane belt. So islanders usually don't have to worry about hurricanes or fierce tropical storms. But in September 2007 Aruba experienced heavy rains from the occurrence of Hurricane Felix...
The primary sign a hurricane is forming is the development of alarge cluster of thunderstorms over the open ocean. Meteorologiststhen track things such as wind speeds and air pressure to predict ahurricane.
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...

The final death toll for Hurricane Katrina was 1,836 people. Themajority of deaths occurred in Louisiana. Louisiana residentsaccounted for 1,577 of the fatalities.
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 theSouthern Hemisphere it is known as Cyclones, which is...
Yes. The storm surge of Hurricane Katrina completely destroyedlarge portions of Biloxi.
1788, destroyed 856 buildings all starting from a barn, the myth is the cow kicked over the oil lantern Another answer: There have been two "great fires" in New Orleans history: the one mentioned above, and another in 1794 that destroyed 212 structures. The "cow myth," however, originated with...
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.
Sadly, they haven't yet, but they are working on it.
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.
All cyclone have a different life span. But on average a cyclone will last for about 3 - 7 day. A cyclone is fromed when low pressured air rises over a sea of about 27 degrees. From 5 - 15 degrees latitude north and south. The high pressured air is trying to fill up the low, the winds are coming out...
Hurricanes, also known as typhoons, are among natures mostcatastrophic storms. A major point of contention in the scientificcommunity and government regard the role of human emissions toclimate change. It is suspected that changing climates areresulting in stronger storms.
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 26 o C and the sea temperature is 28 o C. 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 windspeed of 74 miles per hour. That would make it a category 1. Acategory 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.
Electrical power may be out, running water may be out, gas lines can break. Phone lines may be down, cell phone network may be overloaded. Roads can be flooded and washed away, damage to bridges. If roads aren't working, stores run out of food and gas stations run out of fuel.
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 asfollows: 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.
Hurricanes are given names to allow the public to easily distinguish between systems when there are multiple systems in an individual basin at the same time. These names are taken from lists which vary from region to region and are drafted a few years ahead of time. The lists are decided upon,...
Tropical cyclones do not always move in a westward direction. For example, cyclones that form off the northwest coast of Australia tend to move eastwards towards the coastline.
they arent at all so suck it!! Its spread apart
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
a massive earthquake hit haiti.
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 ,
