Where They are Found
The term, cyclone, is the same as hurricanes, typhoons... The only difference is that they are called cyclones if they are formed in the Indian ocean.
- Cyclones can happen on Mars and Neptune
- Cyclones can be up to 2000 km across
- The fastest wind speed in a cyclone is 408 kph
- The eye, or the center, of a cyclone is the part that is calmest
Types of Cyclones
Tropical cyclones have low air pressure and thunderstorms all around it. These cyclones also cause flooding. They are formed around the tropical area. They fuel on warm air that rises from the eye, which makes them hot core cyclones. They could turn into extratropical cyclones if they get more latitude.
