They occur in many ocean waters across the globe, usually below 20 degrees latitude.

They are organized storms/areas of low pressure (counter-clockwise circulation) that generate from an unstable atmosphere, warm ocean waters and Coriolis force.

Tropical storms generally occur in areas between the tropic of Cancer and the tropic of Capricorn. Tropical storms have different names depending on the areas they occur. Hurricanes apply to storms which occur over the North Atlantic Ocean, the North East Pacific Ocean east of the dateline, or the South Pacific Ocean. The same storm occurring over the North West Pacific Ocean west of the dateline is called a typhoon; one occurring over Australia and the Indian Ocean is a tropical Cyclone, but the winds rotate clockwise.
