Hurricanes are tropical cyclones. Danger arises through very high wind speeds,
waves and heavy rainfalls. In Cuba a common word for a hurricane is 'ciclon'. Season is
from May through November. Traditionally, through its well organized system of civil protection Cuba
is better prepared for hurricanes then the USA or other countries of the Caribbean. Cuba suffers less
loss of human life. Is is not safe from substantial material damages though.

Oficially a hurricane starts when wind speed exceeds 118 Km/hour. But even at 50 Km persons are adviced to seek protection.
