A hurricane is any storm with sustained winds in excess of 74mph. A cyclone is a particular weather system characterised by extreme low pressure and may involve hurricane force winds. A typhoon is a cyclone associated with the Pacific Ocean. So all typhoons are cyclones but not all cyclones are typhoons and both can be hurricanes.

Hurricane is a Western world cyclone (more or less). Typhoon is an Eastern world cyclone (more or less). Cyclone is a swirling cloud and thunderstorm over tropical and subtropical waters.
If there’s a cyclone in the United States then it’s called a hurricane. If there’s a cyclone in India, it’s called a typhoon.
