What is a cyclone?

Cyclones are circular storms that form over warm oceans. When these hurricanes make landfall, they bring heavy rains and strong winds.These winds can destroy trees, vehicles, and sometimes even houses that stand in the way.

A storm is a type of atmospheric disturbance that occurs with strong winds and with them rain, snow or hail. When they occur on land they are referred to as general storms, but storms that come in from the sea are referred to as cyclones. Hurricanes are more intense and dangerous than normal thunderstorms.
