A typhoon is a tropical storm in the region of the Indian or Western pacific oceans.
A hurricane, cyclones, and typhoons are all the same weather, we just use different names for them.
A typhoon forms when warm tropical waters collide with low pressure weather systems.
A typhoon is created by a gradual increase of the ocean waters temperature. Typhoon season is mainly on June and November.
