A cyclone is simply a large-scale area of low atmospheric pressure with closed cyclonic circulation. They may bring thunderstorms but are not necessarily severe. However, hurricanes and typhoons, which are a type of cyclone, are generally worse than tornadoes.

Tornadoes can cause more severe damage on a local scale than cyclones of any type can, but their affects are over a much smaller area.
