Hurricanes are giant, spiraling tropical storms that can pack wind speeds of over 160 miles (257 kilometers) an hour and unleash more than 2.4 trillion gallons (9 trillion liters) of rain a day. These same tropical storms are known as cyclones in the northern Indian Ocean and Bay of Bengal, and as typhoons in the western Pacific Ocean.

They did. In 1979 Hurricane David was a very bad category 5 sotrm that killed over 2,000 people. You can see some old school video footage of the radar related to this storm on You Tube.
