Typhoons

Typhoons are hurricanes but on the west coast. Another name for a typhoon is a tropical cyclone. if you enter the center of one you will be safe. There are no official bounds of the typhoon season. There has been a total of 87 recorded typhoons in 08.

How to protect against a typhoon.

OK obviously you cant stop a typhoon but you con protect yourself. Step one create a kit containing nonperishable foods. Step two make a plan for you and your family to follow like where to go and what to do when you get there. Step three practice if you practice and drill you have a better chance of surviving. If you are on the road when a typhoon hits then I would recommend driving to the nearest house and taking cover with their family. If you are in a plane when one hits then i doubt you'll make it. Don't play in currents cause most people get taken by fast moving currents.

How a typhoon forms

A typhoon is formed when warm air collides with cold air and they counter spin until a typhoon is made. As soon as the air stops moving so will the typhoon. The water
also has to do with it has to be above 80 degrees.A typhoon can make severe water damage.
