Transcript of CYCLONES IN BAHAMAS

CYCLONES IN THE BAHAMAS A cyclone is an area of closed, circular fluid motion rotating in the same direction as the Earth. This is usually characterized by inward spiraling winds that rotate counter clockwise in the Northern Hemisphere and clockwise in the Southern Hemisphere of the Earth This is a house ruined by a nora cyclone This is what a Cyclone look like when it started over the bahamas Cyclone Tracy Cyclone Tracy had
65 people were killed, and 9,000 homes destroyed, out of a city of 43,500 people living in 12,000 residences.
The people aboard the 22 vessels at sea when the cyclone struck, 16 were never found


Cyclone Nargis over 137,000 people cyclone nargis killed Hurricane Andrew
It killed 26 people by direct effects, and 39 indirectly
Hurricane Katrina Typhoons The diffence between a Typhoon,Hurricane and a Cyclone Hurricane A hurricane is an intense, rotating oceanic weather system that possesses maximum sustained winds exceeding 119 km/hr (74 mph). It forms and intensifies over tropical oceanic regions Typhoon Tropical cyclone is a storm system characterized by a large low-pressure center and numerous thunderstorms that produce strong winds and heavy rain Cyclone
A cyclone is a large tropical storm caused by winds rotating around an 'eye', or central area, of low atmospheric pressure. In a cyclone, rapid inward circulation of air masses about a low pressure centre. 'Cyclone' is the generic term for cyclones, hurricanes and typhoons. These tropical storms tend to be called 'cyclones' in the southern hemisphere, and they rotate in a clockwise direction. Hurricanes, typhoons and tropical cyclones are different names for the same type of storm. A tropical cyclone is called a hurricane in the North Atlantic Ocean, South Pacific Ocean, or the Northeast Pacific Ocean on the eastern side of the dateline. A typhoon occurs in the Northwest Pacific Ocean west of the dateline. In other parts of the world, these storms are called severe tropical cyclones.

A hurricane, then, is a cyclonic storm with maximum sustained winds over 74 mph (64 knots; 119 kph). Hurricanes are then further classed according to strength by the Saffir-Simpson Scale. There are five strength categories, with a Category 5 storm rating maximum sustained winds over 156 mph (136 knots; 251 kph).
