What is hurricane and typhoon?

A hurricane is a form of tropical storm characterised by a closed centre of low atmospheric pressure, intense winds, heavy rainfall and low pressure in the centre. 
For a hurricane to form, specific conditions are needed, such as warm surface ocean water (usually above 26.5 degrees Celsius) and the presence of Coriolis (an effect resulting from the Earth's rotation), which gives a hurricane its characteristic rotational motion.

Tropical cyclones are whirls caused by low atmospheric pressure. Their range is up to 400 miles. The tornado operates within a few miles, and their violence is caused by the suction action of low pressure.

Hurricane categories

Hurricanes have different categories, from 1 to 5, depending on the wind speed. Category 1 indicates the least intensity, while Category 5 hurricanes are the most dangerous, with very strong winds exceeding 252 km/h.
