    A tornado caught on social media video hit India’s West Bengal, a state in eastern India, on Tuesday as Cyclone Yaas continued to hit the country.

    According to reports, at least two people died that same day after a tornado snapped electricity lines and damaged 40 homes. It is unknown if they were killed by the same tornado caught on social media video.

    In This Story: Cyclone

    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.
