Do you know that the Vortex phenomenon north of Equator is right-left and south of Equator is left-right!

vortex (plural: vortices) is a spinning, often turbulent, flow of fluid. Any spiral motion with closed streamlines is vortex flow. The motion of the fluid swirling rapidly around a center is called a vortex. The speed and rate of rotation of the fluid in a free (irrotational) vortex are greatest at the center, and decrease progressively with distance from the center, whereas the speed of a forced (rotational) vortex is zero at the center and increases proportional to the distance from the center. Both types of vortex exhibit a pressure minimum at the center, though the pressure minimum in a free vortex is much lower.( FROM DICTIONARY)
