What is the Meaning & Definition of Tropical Storm

A tropical storm is a meteorological phenomenon part of the evolution of a tropical cyclone, meanwhile, is in a position to speak of a storm of this type when the average speed of the wind, during the course of a minute, reaching numbers within the range of 63 to 118 km/h.
Then, this type of storm is characterized by a circulation closed around a centre of low pressure, and which therefore causes strong winds and abundant rainfall. They feed and extract the energy of condensation of the humid air, generating winds of which we spoke.
According to the force and to the location that the tropical storm is you can call it tropical cyclone, Typhoon, hurricane, tropical depression or cyclone.
The name of tropical, is basically due to the geographical origin of such systems, which is originate almost exclusively in tropical regions.
Among the phenomena that they cause are the following: extremely large and strong waves, winds, tornadoes, torrential rains even is likely to swell of cyclonic features are generated.
For this reason it is essential, if inhabited regions in which this kind of weather phenomenon is most common, take some precautions such as an emergency plan which indicate what to do and where to take refuge while lasts the same and have some elements that will help to overcome the situation, such as flashlights, batteries, portable radio, matches candle.
Firstly, tropical storms develop over large areas of warm water and lose part of their forces once they penetrate into the Earth, here is the reason why, generally, the coastal areas are damaged significantly when a storm of this type, takes place while the interior regions are relatively safe from receiving strong winds.
Although it is a fact proven that they cause catastrophic effects in populations in which succession and on vessels, is also another fact that tropical storms can significantly reduce the effects of a drought, transport heat from the tropics to more temperate zones, thus becoming an important global atmospheric circulation mechanism Balancing and stabilizing the ground temperature.
Regions where they develop mainly include the following: the Atlantic Ocean, the Eastern, southern and Western areas of the Pacific Ocean and the Southwest, North and Southeast of the Ocean Indian worldwide, per year, generated approximately 80 tropical storms.
