Differences between a storm and a cyclone:
A tropical storm is a type of storm with winds between 39-73 mph. A cyclone is a more severe storm, with winds over 74 mph. Both types of storms can bring heavy rain and strong winds, and they form over warm ocean waters. “Cyclone” is mostly used in the Southern Hemisphere and “Hurricane” or “Typhoon” is used in the Northern Hemisphere.
