A typhoon is explained as a storm in the tropics, which is prone to occur in certain regions, such as Southeast Asia. This storm is of the cyclone variety, and it comes from the Pacific waterways (particularly the northwest part of the Pacific Ocean). A typhoon will move from a northern equatorial point to west of the global date line. Typhoons are mostly seasonal, occurring frequently from early summer to late autumn; however, they may strike at any point during the annual calendar.

What A Typhoon Does

• Sheets of intense rain are blown about by high winds during a full-fledged typhoon; these winds blow dangerously fast, at speeds of up to 275 kilometers per hour.
• Sometimes, a typhoon will affect an area of over 700 km.
• Damage to property, animals, marine life, and people can be common when a typhoon strikes. Japan is one area that is frequently hit hard by typhoons.

Typhoons are dreaded by the population is many countries; although governments and relief agencies try to prepare for the inevitable, the damage caused by these massive storms can be quite devastating. Typhoons may also trigger other natural disasters, such as sliding earth or earthquakes.

To control or minimize the damage from typhoons, governments may ensure that building and roadways are built up to code, and that they are able to withstand the harsh conditions brought about by seasonal typhoons. People may take emergency preparedness courses, and put together first-aids kits and survival kits, to improve their chances of surviving a potentially deadly typhoon. Certain areas, such as shorelines, will be more prone to take the brunt of typhoons - some people may need to be evacuated to higher ground when a typhoon begins to gather force and energy; in dire cases, international relief agencies will fly in to offer support to victims of typhoons.
