That depends. A cyclone can be almost any large-scale, organized low-pressure system, and so is not necessarily damaging. However, a cyclone has more destructive potential, as it covers a much larger area than even the largest tornadoes. A tornado cannot cause as much damage in terms of quantity, but the damage that does occur is often far more severe.
a cyclone is another from of a tornado but more in a dangerous way
A cyclone is more like a hurricane. In fact a hurricane is a type of cyclone.
No country really calls a cyclone a tornado. Some parts of the U.S. a tornado a cyclone, though a tornado and a cyclone are two different things. In the U.S. however a strong tropical cyclone is called a hurricane.
A cyclone is bigger than a tornado by far, but a tornado is usually more violent.
A tornado in Kansas.
No. Cyclones and tornadoes are completely different phenomena.
cyclone tornado and hurricanes
Americans call a cyclone a tornado.
A hurricane and a typhoon are the same strength, as they are the same type of storm only occurring in different regions. They are a kind of cyclone. Overall, a hurricane or typhoon is stronger than other varieties of cyclone. Due to their large size, such cyclone will release more energy than a tornado, but a tornado has stronger winds.
tornado, because they form more quickly, on land, they do more severe damage then a cyclone. Cyclone is a fairly generic term. It can apply to dangerous weather systems such as hurricanes, but it can also apply to just about any low pressure system with a closed circulation, even if it is not violent or severe.
A cyclone is virtually any low pressure system, ranging from a mild low that brings gentle wind to a hurricane. Generally a tornado has stronger winds, but a cyclone, being larger, can release more energy overall.
The F5 (or EF5 as of February 2007) tornado is the most damaging category.
This most closely describes a tornado, though a tornado technically is not a cyclone.
No, a hurricane is an intense tropical cyclone.
A Bora is not a cyclone. Tornadoes more features in common with cyclones, but they are technically not cyclones either.
A tornado is also commonly known as a cyclone.
A cyclone is bigger. Cyclones are large scale storm systems while a tornado is actually quite small in weather terms. However, tornadoes are generally more violent than cyclones.
A tornado in the southern hemisphere is still called a tornado.
No. A cyclone is a different kind of weather event.
No. While a tornado and a cyclone have a number of things in common, they are two different things. A tornado is a small-scale circulation that is dependent on a parent storm cell. A cyclone is a large-scale circulation that is its own independent weather system.
That depends on the tornado. In a single vortex tornado the most damaging part would be the edge of the tornado's core, analogous to the eye wall of a hurricane. In a multiple vortex tornado, the most damaging part would be the subvotices that orbit within the main circulation of the tornado.
Yes. A tornado is orders of magnitude smaller than a tropical cyclone. Most tornadoes are no more than a few hundred yards wide and rarely over a mile. By contrast a tropical cyclone is usually hundreds of miles wide.
There is no such thing as a "cyclone 5 tornado." You can have a category 5 hurricane or an EF5 tornado. In either case, the answer would be no; there is too much turbulence.
No, Streator, Illinois was hit by a tornado, which is different from a cyclone.
