Hurricanes, strong and deep tropical cyclones (with maximum wind speed of 32.7 M / s and wind force above force 12) are called hurricanes in the Atlantic and eastern North Pacific., It also refers to strong winds and any tropical cyclone and any strong wind with force 12. There is a wind eye in the center of a hurricane. The smaller the wind eye, the greater the destructive force. Its significance is similar to that of a typhoon, but its location is different.
The biggest difference between typhoons and hurricanes is their birthplace and activity area. Typhoons mainly refer to tropical cyclones generated and active in the Northwest Pacific and the South China Sea, while hurricanes refer to tropical cyclones generated and active in the Middle East Pacific and the North Atlantic.
In terms of classification, typhoons with wind force above 12 are divided into three levels, while hurricanes have more levels and higher upper limit. Category I hurricane is equivalent to typhoon or strong typhoon, category II hurricane is equivalent to strong typhoon, category III hurricane is equivalent to strong typhoon or super typhoon, and category IV and category V hurricanes are equivalent to super typhoon.
