Are monsoons and typhoons the same thing?

    Not quite. A monsoon is a seasonal prevailing wind that lasts for several months. It is caused by development of a low temperature zone over a land mass.

    A typhoon is a cyclone that forms in the northwest Pacific Ocean (to the west of the international date line). Storms from the Eastern and Central Pacific crossing the date line are re-designated as typhoons; to the east of the line they are called hurricanes.
