    The term 'Cyclone' derived from a Greek word meaning the coil of a snake, is used for tropical revolving storms occurring in the Bay of Bengal and the Arabian Sea. These storms are confined to definite regions of the earth and occur, for the most part, in the tropical portions of the western sides of the great oceans. The term cyclone is applied to all tropical storms although they are known as 'hurricanes' in the Atlantic and Eastern Pacific, as 'typhoons' in the Western Pacific, as 'willy willias' in the Australian Seas and as 'Baguios' in the Philippines.
