The biggest difference is that the tornado occurs on earth and the hurricane and typhoon in the ocean. Typhoon and hurricane are the same  and difference is related to the location.  When it occurs in the Atlantic Ocean or Eastern Pacific is a hurricane and when it occurs in the Western Pacific is typhoon.

The hurricane or typhoon are phenomena that revolve around their centers and are classified as cyclones. On the other hand, the tornado takes form of a column of air rotating from the ground. The typhoon or hurricane last several days and their winds are less strong than the tornado. A tornado can reach 500 km per hour and does not last long around 15 minutes.  Although lasting less in time, it is more destructive than a typhoon or hurricane.
