EtymologyEdit

In meteorology, a cyclone is an area of closed, circular fluid motion rotating in the same direction as the Earth.

A whirlwind is a weather phenomenon in which a vortex of wind (a vertically oriented rotating column of air) forms due to instabilities and turbulence created by heating and flow (current) gradients.
