Hurricanes and tropical storms can produce tornadoes. These tornadoes most often occur in thunderstorms embedded in rain bands well away from the center of the hurricane; however, they can also occur near the eyewall. The majority of tornadoes associated with tropical systems occur in the right front quadrant of the storm.
Can a tornado cause a hurricane?
Yes, hurricanes can form tornadoes. Tornadoes are rotating air masses formed over the land surface due to pressure differences. Hurricanes, on the other hand, are also rotating mass of air but originate over the water bodies. Hurricanes may factor in the formation of tornadoes once they make inroads onto the landmass.

The next thing we wondered was; do hurricanes do more damage than tornadoes?
Overall, as a complete storm, when considering all the factors, hurricanes are more destructive than tornadoes. Because they are larger, they impact far more people and damage far more property. For example, the 2011 Joplin tornado, one of the costliest caused about $3 billion in damages.
A frequent question we ran across in our research was “Do Hurricanes always move faster than tornadoes?”.
Hurricanes are much, much larger than tornadoes (Irma’s innards stretch some 400 miles, or TK kilometers, across), but tornadoes can generate much faster winds than hurricanes.
Hurricanes tend to cause much more overall destruction than tornadoes because of their much larger size, longer duration and their greater variety of ways to affect property. The destructive core in hurricanes can be tens of miles across, last many hours and damage structures through storm surge and rainfall-caused flooding, as well as from wind.
