They're two entirely different phenomena which don't have much in common at all, so it's difficult to describe the "difference" between them (sort of like describing the difference between a car and a goat). An earthquake is a movement in the Earth's crust. A typhoon is, basically, a hurricane. (The same kind of storm is called a hurricane if it occurs in the Atlantic or the eastern Pacific, and a typhoon if it occurs in the western Pacific.)
