So what’s the between a hurricane and a typhoon? Well there isn’t much really, aside from where they are formed.

A typhoon forms at the north western part of the Pacific Ocean. The Philippines and Japan are the countries that are usually affected by typhoons.

The Philippines acts as a ‘shield’ to the South East Asian countries and even China. When a typhoon makes a landfall in the Philippines, it is significantly weakened or completely dissipated. They should to thanks us!



The regions usually affected by typhoons are Leyte, Samar and Batanes. It’s why Ivatan (people from Batanes) houses are made of limestone and coral with cogon grass to cope with the hostile condition.


Meanwhile, hurricanes are formed at the North Atlantic Ocean, North Eastern Pacific Ocean and South Pacific Ocean.

That’s their difference. Now you know.
