Top best answers to the question «Why does a hurricane turn»

Thanks to the Coriolis Effect's impact on air and water, the movement happens in a curved direction; the north goes to the right and the south goes to the left. This is why hurricanes rotate counterclockwise in the northern hemisphere and cyclones in the southern hemisphere rotate clockwise.
