Severe Weather Events: Hurricanes, Tornadoes, and Typhoons 

Hurricanes, tornadoes, and typhoons are powerful and destructive severe weather events classified by their location and characteristics. 

Hurricanes, primarily observed in the Atlantic and Northeast Pacific, are large tropical cyclones with intense winds and heavy rainfall. 

Tornadoes are violent windstorms characterized by a twisting, funnel-shaped cloud, often forming in thunderstorms and causing localized damage. 

Typhoons are the same phenomena as hurricanes but occur in the Northwest Pacific, typically affecting countries like Japan and the Philippines. 

The formation of hurricanes requires warm ocean waters, while tornadoes form within powerful thunderstorms. 

Intensified by climate change, these severe weather events are becoming more frequent and intense, posing significant risks to coastal and inland areas. 

Both tornadoes and hurricanes can cause widespread destruction through high winds, storm surges, and heavy rainfall. 

Advanced monitoring and warning systems are crucial for mitigating the impact of these severe weather events and protecting vulnerable populations.
