Do You Know the Difference Between Cyclones, Hurricanes and Typhoons?

Hurricanes, cyclones, and typhoons are all the same weather phenomenon; we just use different names for these storms in different locations. In the Atlantic and Northeast Pacific, the term “hurricane” is used.

The same type of meteorological disturbance in the Northwest Pacific is called a “typhoon” and “cyclones” elsewhere around the world. For example, a tropical cyclone in Thailand may be re-classified depending on the origin of the disturbance.
