The tropical storm/hurricane symbol resembles a 6 and 9 together.  It illustrates the counterclockwise rotation of cyclones in the northern hemisphere.  In the southern hemisphere, is the symbol shown in a reversed manner to illustrate the clockwise rotation?

Of course it's reversed just like the way the toilet water drains differently!
