The beginning of July 2014 marked the commencement of the hurricane cycle in the North Atlantic Ocean with Hurricane Arthur slamming in to North Carolina. Shortly after, weather activity intensified in the Pacific Ocean where Typhoon Neoguri hit Japan.

Every ocean on our planet undergoes a timed cycle within every year where they experience a great frequency of tropical storms. Tropical depressions transformed in to tropical storms have different names in different oceans. All tropical storms are accompanied by torrential rain, thunderstorms and strong winds exceeding 119km/h.
