Trivia: What is different about hurricanes in the Southern Hemisphere?
They are stronger
They can’t form
They rotate different directions
They form at opposite temperatures
Correct Answer: They rotate different directions
So why is this answer correct? : Hurricanes rotate clockwise in the Southern Hemisphere and counter-clockwise in the Northern Hemisphere due to the Coriolis Effect, in which air is pulled in different directions on both sides of the equator due to the rotation of the Earth. Contrary to popular belief, this effect is typically too weak to be observed in toilets or sinks.
