The only difference between typhoons, hurricanes, and cyclones is the location where they form. Cyclones are names for storms that form in the Indian Ocean and the South West Pacific. Typhoons form in the North West Pacific and Hurricanes form anywhere in the Atlantic.
Tornados are usually smaller in size than hurricanes, and are formed directly over land. cyclone, but either one can cause major damage.
A tsunami is a type of undersea wave that can propagate at high speed across oceans and if strong enough cause catastrophic damage as it crashes on shore sometimes thousands of miles away. They normally are caused by earthquakes or under sea volcanoes.
Monsoons refer to a seasonal event, not a catastrophic storm. During the hot monsoon seasons the land near an ocean will heat up, causing a low pressure area and a continual wind from the sea with a lot of rain. The high winds formed by a monsoon can also cause tornados.
