  3. 3)The eye is a region of mostly calm weather at there centre of strong tropical cyclones. The eye of a storm is a roughly circular area, typically 30–65 km (20–40 km) in diameter. Eye or Eyewall

    an unusually large sea wave produced by a seaquake or undersea volcanic eruption.

  5. What is a tropical cyclone? What does the water temperature need to be?

    1.A tropical cyclone is a rapidly rotating storm system characterized by a low-pressure centre, strong winds, and a spiral arrangement of thunderstorms that produce heavy rain.

    2.80 degrees

  6. 1. A coastal, very severe low-pressure wind method, establishing over oceans, with winds up to 63 km/h. causing local disaster.

    2. The water temperature needs to be 80°F (26.5°C) ocean temperatures to form a tropical cyclone

    3. The centre of a tropical cyclone is called the eye of the cyclone and is distinguished by light winds and usually clear skies

    4.Tropical cyclones rotate in a anti-clockwise direction in the Northern Hemisphere and clockwise in the southern hemisphere.

    5.Cyclones are measured in Knots or Miles per Hour
