Tropical Depression, Cyclones and Tropical Storms
The first part of a tropical weather event is called a tropical depression. Tropical depressions are cyclones with winds that gust at 38 miles per hour or less. While tropical cyclones don't have the strength of tropical storms or hurricanes, they can bring significant amounts of rain, thunderstorms and devastating floods.
A tropical depression is upgraded to a tropical storm when the cyclone’s circulation is more organized and has wind speeds of 39 to 73 miles per hour. Tropical storms bring large amounts of rain and can cause enough wind and water activity to damage boats and erode beaches.
Storms can be very unpredictable and that's why preparation is key. Keep your Hurricane Supply Kit prepared for not only hurricanes, but tropical storms and flooding as well.
