This Explains Why Storms Are Spinning in A Different Way

Why do storms spin in different directions depending on their location—and why do they spin in the first place? The Coriolis effect is most apparent in the path of an object moving longitudinally. On the Earth an object that moves along a north-south path, or longitudinal line, will undergo apparent deflection to the right in the Northern Hemisphere and to the left in the Southern Hemisphere.
