India is evacuating thousands of people from low-lying areas along its western coast as a powerful cyclone, Cyclone Tauktae, has thus far killed at least six people and is expected to make landfall on Tuesday morning in the state of Gujarat.

Cyclone Tauktae, which formed in the Arabian Sea, has already brought lashing rain and winds that damaged houses and uprooted trees to parts of western and southern India.

The storm wreaked havoc in the busy coastal city of Mumbai, forcing the commuter train system to shut down due to floods and high winds.

    In meteorology, a cyclone is a large scale air mass that rotates around a strong center of low atmospheric pressure. Cyclones are characterized by inward spiraling winds that rotate about a zone of low pressure and typically bring winds, rain, high waves and storm surges to the areas they pass.

    In the Atlantic and the northeastern Pacific oceans, a tropical cyclone is generally referred to as a hurricane (from the name of the ancient Central American deity of wind, Huracan), in the Indian and south Pacific oceans it is called a cyclone, and in the northwestern Pacific it is called a typhoon.
