    Default These storms go around like a wheel

    Does this "go around" refer to "move around" or "revolve like a spinal"? I think the latter.

    3. Tropical cyclones ae called typhoons in Asia, and hurricanes in North and south America. These storms go around like a wheel turning to the left when they hit in the northern part of the world...

    Default Re: These storms go around like a wheel

    You are correct - it would refer to "revolve like a spiral". You could even use the word "circulate" in this case.
