The word cyclone refers only to Location, location, and location! This is especially important when, ocean storms strikes, because the location of the storm determines the name for cyclone i.e. hurricane, typhoon, tropical cyclones. For example, if the storm occurs in the Atlantic Ocean and Northeast Pacific, it’s called a hurricane. If the similar type of storm occurs in the Northwest Pacific, this is a typhoon. And if we find these same storms in the South Pacific and the Indian Ocean, these are called tropical cyclones. As per the NHC hurricane IRMA will affect the Puerto Rico, Vieques, and Culebra, the Dominican Republic from Cabo Engano to the northern border with Haiti, Haiti from the northern border with the Dominican Republic to Le Mole St. Nicholas, Southeastern Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos Islands, Central Bahamas.
Cyclone refers to any spinning storm in the sea, that rotates around a low-pressure centre. The low-pressure centre is also referred to as the ‘eye’ of the storm, which is well known for being eerily calm compared with the areas under the spinning ‘arms’ of the storm. You could say that the eye is watching what’s going on down below, so it needs a clear path, but the arms are where all the action happens because this is where the storm is throwing out all of its rain and wind.
