Why Hurricanes and Cyclones Spin Counter clockwise in the Northern hemisphere and Clockwise in the Southern hemisphere

The direction of that spin depends on what hemisphere of the world the hurricane is brewing in. A hurricane's spin and the spin's direction are determined by a super-powerful phenomenon called the "Coriolis effect."

The particles heading away from the equator are traveling at higher speeds than the ones closer to the poles. Because the globe is spinning, air and water therefore don't follow a straight path north or south. Instead, anything traveling northward in the northern hemisphere gets pushed toward the right.

Particles traveling from the equator to the south experience a similar curve in the opposite direction. It effects things like wind, ocean currents, airplanes, missiles, but doesn’t effect toilets or sinks.”  (In case you were wondering, that would be better referred to as “ambient swishing.”)
