Hurricanes travel in a westward direction because in the tropics and subtropics, the Bermuda high, Bermuda-Azores high, or the subtropical ridge is the primary steering feature in the Atlantic. Air rotates clockwise around a high pressure system, which creates an easterly, or southeasterly flow that pushes tropical storms and hurricanes to the west.
