Hurricanes, cyclones and typhoons?
Through out our life time we may have heard these three names for storms. Hurricanes, cyclones, typhoons and tropical storms. So what is the difference between all these?
Well here is a quick guide:
Hurricanes are tropical storms that form over the North Atlantic Ocean and Northeast Pacific.
Cyclones are formed over the South Pacific and Indian Ocean.
Typhoons are formed over the Northwest Pacific Ocean.
Tropical Storms a localized, very intense low-pressure wind system, forming over tropical oceans and with winds of hurricane force.
So which would you be most likely to come in contact with in your area? Well for starters you can rest assured that a hurricane will almost never hit the west coast because of the cold water in the Pacific Coast! But remember, regardless of the storm, SERVPRO is ready to handle any situation!
