What is a Cyclone?

A cyclone is an atmospheric disturbance in tropical regions that causes strong vertical winds and heavy rainfall. The pressure in the centre is minimal.

What is the DANGEROUS thing about a cyclone

Wind strength: winds reach their maximum values at the periphery of the eye. Precipitation: torrential rains accompanying the system cause flooding, landslides or landslides. The sea: the rise in mean sea level linked to the passage of the cyclone combines with the enormous waves of the cyclonic swell to undermine the coastline or flood the coastal plains.

Who detects and monitors cyclones?

Meteo-France Reunion is a CMRS (Centre Météorologique Spécialisé "Cyclone") officially in charge of detecting and monitoring tropical disturbances in the South-West Indian Ocean.
