Day After Tomorrow - Cyclonic Typhoons?`
The massive storm that strikes LA is described by the films lead as a 'cyclone'. Simultaneously a massive typhoon strikes Australia, 'the worst they had ever seen'.
I was under the impression that cyclones occur in the southern hemisphere moving in a clockwise motion, whereas typhoons and hurricanes move in an anti-clockwise motion, as they both only occur in the northern hemisphere. Its a bit like they way the water swirls in the toilet, if you know what I mean.
This stood out to me as a blatant slip-up, I think they got them the wrong way around. A little more education in meteorology may have been in order.
