Do you get cyclones there?  We don't get hurricanes or tornadoes here.

Anything "tornado-like" is called a 'Willy Willy'.

Hurricanes, basically the same (I think) as Cyclones/Typhoons.

The only difference between a hurricane and a typhoon is the location where the storm occurs. ... In the North Atlantic, central North Pacific, and eastern North Pacific, the term hurricane is used. The same type of disturbance in the Northwest Pacific is called a typhoon.

All are cyclones, but usually referred to by storms in the Indian Ocean.

Well there you go.

I know that some are called men and some women.

Cyclones and hurricanes are both named after women.
