Tropical cyclones in Canada: current status in September 2022
After wreaking havoc in parts of the Caribbean last week, Hurricane Fiona moved north toward eastern Canada, where it made landfall as a tropical cyclone later this week. The downgraded storm still brought torrential rain and winds up to 70 mph, causing the storm to rise and topple trees and power lines. Hundreds of thousands remain without electricity while rescue workers and utility workers work to clear debris and rebuild lines. The loss is in the billions, with the insured loss amounting to approximately $900 million.
Causes and consequences of cyclone
Cyclones are divided into types of tropical cyclones and extra-tropical cyclones. Tropical cyclones mostly form in the Indian Ocean or South Pacific Ocean in Asia. Cyclones are especially common in late summer. Because in summer when the ocean is warm, a lot of it evaporates. During evaporation, air flows from all directions. The air mass also begins to spiral due to the rotation of the Earth. It produces very high speeds that destroy buildings and landscapes.
