What is the difference between a hurricane and a typhoon?

Answer

The only difference between a hurricane and a typhoon is geography. The tow names are different names for a tropical cyclone. Cyclones are called hurricanes in the Western hemisphere (North Atlantic Ocean, the Northeast Pacific Ocean and the South Pacific Ocean), and typhoon in the Eastern hemisphere (the Northwest Pacific Ocean west of the dateline.)
