I’m a little confused, (this is a fairly normal state for me so no need for alarm)
by Tornados, Hurricanes and Cyclones, will have to do some researching.
As I understand it a Tornado is only on a very narrow front and has little effect on the weather surrounding it, we have what we call tornados here very occasionally, they are generally over in 1/3 minutes are usually about 100 metres wide and leave total devastation behind them, this is because the wind speed can be many times greater than in a Cyclone or Hurricane.
We have a lot more Cyclones, these are the same as Hurricanes in that; they form as a tropical low pressure system and have a front sometimes a hundred miles wide are normally quite slow traveling but generating deadly wind gusts.
Both have an Eye, or centre which has rapidly spinning air currents, ours in the Southern Hemisphere rotate in the opposite direction to the Northern Hemisphere, within the Eye the winds drop off dramatically, only to pick up as the Eye moves forward.
Cyclones and Hurricanes are far more destructive than Tornados because of the far greater area covered and the longer duration, they also are the product of a weather pattern which is in itself quite destructive, torrential rain which can cause flooding, storm surge, which can cause huge tides that inundate low lying areas near the coast.
This has been a very quick look at a complex subject which started out being for my own interest, it was sparked by a comment on a previous posting, and has held my interest for several hours. the two links provided will let you do some reading of your own should you so desire.
