How do hurricanes rotate in both Southern and Northern hemispheres?

Yes. By definition a hurricane must rotate, however, they rotate in opposite directions. Storms in the northern hemisphere rotate counterclockwise while those in the southern hemisphere rotate clockwise.


Do tornadoes always spin clockwise?

No. Most tornadoes in the northern hemisphere spin counterclockwise in the northern hemisphere. Most southern hemisphere tornadoes spin clockwise. There are also anticyclonic tornadoes, which spin in the opposite direction than is normal for their hemispheres. Only about .1% to 1% of tornadoes are anticyclonic.


Why do toilets flush counter clockwise in the northern hemisphere and clockwise in the southern hemisphere?

They don't. That is a myth. The direction that a toilet flushes depends on how the toilet is designed, not what hemisphere it's in. Due to the Coriolis Effect, large scale weather systems and ocean currents rotate in opposite directions in opposite hemispheres, but this effect does not influence things on the scale of toilet bowls.


How will the winds of blowing out of a pressure system in the northern hemisphere and southern hemisphere blow?

If the earth stopped revolving when the northern hemisphere was pointed towards the sun would you have longer nights or days?

All you would have is a day where the Northern Hemisphere was pointed at the sun. The side opposite would be in permanent night. it would have nothing to do with Hemispheres but with which side is pointed to the sun. Alternate: If by 'pointed towards' you mean at the same angle as the current tilt, then the answer would be a little different. But the answer would depend on where you are. Or are you one of the many who assume that the northern hemisphere is the only one? If you are in the northern hemisphere, you would have longer daytime periods than night. It would be opposite in the southern hemisphere.
