Why is it that there we use the name hurricanes, someone else typhoon, and some place else something different? Wouldn't it be easier to just call them all hurricanes?

I suppose that you are serious? Different culture different names. "Hurricane" came from the some of the original settlers of the Carribbean. :idea: It wouldn't seem reasonable to think that name would be used in Japan. Right?
