New comics Mon-Fri; reruns Sat-Sun
1 Mate: The Caribs call these big storms huracans. It’s a local name for the more general weather phenomenon of tropical cyclones.
2 Mate: It’s like a much larger version of the tornado, which is a localised rotating windstorm.

4 Ponsonby: Lots of sharks in the Caribbean.
4 Mate: Yes, this could be a tropical sharklone.
