A Tropical Cyclone is the most fierce storm in the world. It has many names including: hurricane (North America and Northern parts of South America), Cyclone (Around India, South Altantic, South Pacific and South Indian oceans ), Typhoon (East of Asia) and European Windstorm (Europe). This fearsome storm is born when convection organizes around a low-level closed surface circulation. As the convection wraps around the center more and becomes more deeper, the cyclone intensifies.
