Hurricane/Cyclone/Typhoon

So I've been reading about the Cyclone that's about to hit Australia. I wondered what the difference was between a cyclone and a hurricane, and it turns out the difference in nomenclature boils down to geographic location.

Hurricanes, Typhoons, and Cyclones, oh my!

And that particular weather pattern, regardless of its name, is something that no one wants to deal with. So thoughts and prayers to our frends Down Under who are dealing with it.
