Disaster Recovery Semantics: Different Terms Used, Same Challenges Faced

October 18, 2017

What is the difference between a hurricane and a typhoon?

The only difference between a hurricane and a typhoon is the location where the storm occurs. According to the National Ocean Service, “Hurricanes and typhoons are the same weather phenomenon: tropical cyclones. Once a tropical cyclone reaches maximum sustained winds of 74 miles per hour or higher, it is then classified as a hurricane, typhoon, or tropical cyclone, depending upon where the storm originates in the world."
