A cyclone is a violent storm. It never comes alone. Heavy showers of rain, thunder and lightning are its companions. When a cyclone blows, it moves round and round in the form of small circles. It always changes its course when it blows. It does not move in the same direction like an ordinary storm. It occurs mostly in warm parts of the world. India is in this region of the world. Hence cyclones often blow over her. There are no cyclones in cold in cold countries.
There are some sings of the blowing of a cyclone. The weather becomes hot. There is not a breath of wind. Patches of dark cloud gradually spread in the sky. At last, the sky becomes dark. A storm sets in. The wind then begins to blow violently. From these we can understand that a cyclone will begin. Then it rains very heavily. Rashes of lightning are seen. Thunders begin to peal loudly. The wind begins to blow furiously. There is a roaring noise. The wind continues to blow for some hours. Sometimes it continues for a couple of days together.
The effect of the blowing of a cyclone is terrible as big trees fall down. House are blown away. It results in damage to life and property. The water of rivers rises as there are huge waves in them. Many boats are drowned. Everywhere dead bodies of men and beasts can be seen. Crops are destroyed. People suffer much. They become homeless and helpless. There is scarcity of food. A famine can break out after a cyclone. The miserable condition of the people cannot be fully described. Other people then try to help them with money, food and clothes.
