He explained that these two factors contribute to moving the winds from one place to another, and when pressure values decrease in an area, air molecules move from all directions to fill this void, which leads to the formation of air currents and their collision, and the formation of an air vortex on land known as a storm, and at sea it is called a storm. A tornado.

Al-Zaaq explained that the weather phenomena witnessed by the UAE, Oman and Yemen, including strong winds and heavy rain, were the result of an interaction between different weather factors, as the distinctive characteristics of a hurricane and a storm combined.
