Can a hurricane and a tornado combine?
How do hurricanes form?
Why do tornadoes come from the sky?
How many tornadoes can occur at the same time?
All excellent questions!
A hurricane can produce a tornado but a tornado cannot create a hurricane. If both exist as separate storms unrelated to each other they can not combine. The reason is that the tornado is a very small width system and would be blown apart by the overall wind circulation of a hurricane. A hurricane can have, as part of their structure, cumulonimbus clouds that will create a tornado(s) as associated with that particular cloud:
Hurricanes form in the tropics with warm air, ocean moisture, cyclonic spin. Usually this all happens in a cluster of thunderstorms near the equator:
Tornadoes form in thunderstorms and reach the ground to then be called a tornado:
A squall line composed of many thunderstorms can have multiple tornadoes:
