    Hurricanes form in tropical waters, while bomb cyclones form over the northwestern Atlantic, northwestern Pacific and sometimes the Mediterranean Sea. Many of the infamous storms that have battered the East Coast and sunk ships in the northwestern Atlantic Ocean throughout history were bomb cyclones.
    Bombogenesis happens when “a midlatitude cyclone rapidly intensifies, dropping at least 24 millibars over 24 hours.”
    Bombogenesis is exactly what hurricane Fiona will do when it transitions from a major hurricane into an extratropical cyclone Friday into Saturday. The warm core of the tropical cyclone will interact with a trough in the atmosphere.
