No. Typhoons and hurricanes are essentially the same thing – strong tropical storms. The terms are different based on their location. If a strong tropical storm develops in the northwest Pacific Ocean, it is called a typhoon. If it develops in the north Atlantic Ocean, the northeast Pacific Ocean or the south Pacific Ocean, it’s referred to as a hurricane. They’re also referred to as cyclones, severe tropical cyclones and severe cyclonic storms elsewhere in the oceans.
Typhoons and hurricanes are essentially the same phenomenon known collectively as tropical cyclone. The difference is just where they occur; in the Pacific and the Atlantic respectively. The a amount of rain will differ on a number of factors from where they form to how hot the water is below them, but these factor effect typhoons and hurricanes equally.
