What are the differences and similarities between hurricanes and tornadoes?

Answer

While hurricanes and tornadoes are large wind storms that can do considerable damage to land and property, as well as cause injury or death. However, both are very different kinds of storms. Hurricanes come with very heavy rains and can stretch across a massive amount of land as well as the ocean. Tornadoes are more isolated and come on suddenly as funnel clouds that do significant damage in a short amount of time. Also, tornadoes can be byproducts of hurricanes and small ones can emerge out of a hurricane's winds. Also, there are many more tornadoes per year than hurricanes and hurricanes form on coastal lands, while tornadoes can form on the coast and inland as well.
