There are some people who are confused with using hurricane and cyclones because they are not sure if these two things mean the same thing. They do mean strong storms but the difference is the location where the violent storms have first started. The hurricane is a type of storm that forms in the Atlantic area, the Caribbean, and some parts of the Pacific ocean.

The cyclone, on the other hand, is a type of typhoon that forms specifically in the western part of the Pacific. It is best that you familiarize yourself with this to avoid any confusion in the future. The rotation of these storms and their directions are also different from each other.
