Tornado? Typhoon? Hurricane? Cyclone?

Someone asked this question today: “Why do they name hurricanes and not tornado’s?

I offered: “One is wet, while the other is dry?

To which the reply was : “One is wet, while the other is dry?

Which got me thinking:

About … Typhoon? Hurricane? Cyclone? & Tornadoes!

Looked it up and found this:  https://www.cbsnews.com/news/typhoon-hurricane-cyclone-heres-the-difference/

So next time, … maybe I would consider strength, rotation & seasons.


BTW, I did respond with this question: “What about cyclones and typhoons?

Let’s see what they say.

Update: “I think we need to factor in the strength, rotation & season, location, climate and weather too.”
