In the first instance, what are the grammatically correct ways to phrase the statement below? Second, if more than one is correct, which one seems the more appropriate or natural-sounding?

Typhoons [differ/vary] [in/by] the degree and variety of damage (they cause)"


You need the variants using the preposition in here, with either of the verbs.

I'd probably choose 'vary' to suggest a difference really in scale rather than kind.
