What’s the difference between cyclones and tournadoes. Australia was hammered with bad weather on the weekend

OK, if you’re in Sydney over the next couple of days…pack a raincoat. The East Coast of Australia has been hammered with high wind and rain, and for the first time ever, I’ve heard journalists talk about Queensland being victim to tournados!

As far as I’m aware, Australia is prone to cyclones but tournados??? I always thought they were unique to North America. Can anyone tell me what the difference is between a tournado and a cyclone.

Oh, and by the way, our weather is getting back to being beautiful for those about to head to Australia.
