If I understand correctly, this question asks how typhoons develop. I will answer based on this assumption.
Typhoons start from tropical depressions. These are areas with low pressure and thunderstorms.
Typhoon winds develop as the warm water (the water has to be warm) vapor comes up into the sky and condenses to form rain clouds. This releases energy and that helps make the winds stronger.
After a typhoon forms out in the middle of the Pacific, it is moved generally west and north because of the Coriolis Effect caused by the Earth's rotation. That's why typhoons come out of the area of Micronesia and then go hit the Philippines and Japan and places like that.
