Are tornadoes land hurricanes?

    No, hurricanes and tornadoes differ in more ways than where they occur.

    Hurricanes are systems that form from a low pressure system that is typically located in the tropics. The warm ocean water fuels cloud formations. Winds and the jet stream push the clouds further into the ocean, and the sustained winds increase. The storm is a hurricane when the sustained winds reach 75 miles per hour.

    Tornadoes are isolated storm events that form ahead of a front. Storm clouds become “supercells”, “and the collision between the high pressure and low pressure systems causes the winds to circulate around each other.”
