Tropical Cyclones can also be known as hurricanes. Tropical Cyclones can cause damage or devastation when they hit land where people live. A tropical cyclone is a rapidly rotating storm system characterized by a low-pressure center, strong winds, and a spiral arrangement of thunderstorms that produce heavy rain. Tropical cyclones are typically between 100 and 4,000 km (62 and 2,485 mi) in diameter.
