Are hurricanes stronger twisters?
A hurricane is a storm with a violent wind, in particular a tropical cyclone in the Caribbean. A "twister" is a tornado, a mobile, destructive vortex of violently rotating winds having the appearance of a funnel-shaped cloud and advancing beneath a large storm system. So, they are not particularly defined vis-a-vis each other. Their relative strengths would depend on each individual case.
