The town's name commemorates a destructive tornado that struck the area on June 14, 1880. A 1913 county history states,
[It was] the most destructive storm that ever visited the county, either since its settlement or in traditional history. It was a genuine cyclone with a "funnel shaped cloud," which swept over a curved path of over forty miles in this and adjoining counties, leaving desolation in its wake. It was estimated to have done $200,000 damage in this county. The present town, which was located about that time as a railroad station, was in the path of the storm and was named for it.
A post office was established at Cyclone in 1883, and remained in operation until it was discontinued in 1933.
Cyclone is located at.
