The 2010 hurricane season in the Pacific was the least active season on record. There were a total of 13 depressions, three of which were hurricanes (the rest were tropical storms). The season was unusually calm due in part of a moderate La Niña.
Twelve cyclones occured in the Pacific in 2010 — of those, 3 were hurricanes (named Celia, Darby, and Frank respectively). A cyclone refers to any tropical storm, whereas a hurricane is a special type of cyclone that is generally more intense (for example, winds must reach 74 mph and have to be accompanied by rain, thunder, and lightning to classify a cyclone as a hurricane).
