tropical storm[edit]

I find the speeds confusing in this article. What is kt? (kiloton?) SemperBlotto 07:14, 20 September 2005 (UTC) Wikipedia only has an article on tropical cyclone - is this the same? SemperBlotto 07:14, 20 September 2005 (UTC)

  • Well, (in answer to questions on my talk page) according to the wikipedia article, a tropical storm is a variety of tropical cyclone, along with tropical depression and hurricane - so I would have preferred multiple articles. We don't often have external references in Wiktionary, rather pointers to Wikipedia (which is where I should put them). Also, when you move an article to a new name, you should adjust its headword (still says tropical storm). Keep up the good work. SemperBlotto 13:09, 26 September 2005 (UTC)
