A cyclone and a hurricane are both intense and destructive storms. The main difference between the two is the location in which they occur. Cyclones are tropical storms that form in the Indian Ocean and South Pacific Ocean, while hurricanes form in the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea, and Eastern Pacific Ocean.
Another difference between cyclones and hurricanes is the wind speed. Cyclones tend to have wind speeds between 118-153 km/h (73-95 mph), while hurricanes have wind speeds greater than 153 km/h (95 mph). Cyclones also have a smaller diameter than hurricanes, so they don’t cause as much damage over a large area.
