Meta Info
Details
  • The information in this World Meteorological Organization (WMO) event is based on advisories issued by Regional Specialized Meteorological Centres (RSMCs) and Tropical Cyclone Warning Centres (TCWCs), and official warnings issued by National Meteorological and Hydrological Services (NMHSs) for their respective countries or regions. The media may use this information for their broadcasting services on the radio or TV. When doing so, it should be indicated that they are issued by the respective RSMCs, TCWCs or NMHSs.

    As different participating Members may give different locations, intensities or even names for the same Tropical Cyclone, to avoid confusion, only the information supplied by the RSMC or TCWC responsible for the region is displayed graphically on the maps.

    The Hazard

    Tropical cyclones are among the most destructive natural phenomena. The impact from cyclones extends over a wide area, with strong winds and heavy rains. However, the greatest damage to life and property is not from the wind, but from secondary events such as storm surges, flooding, landslides and tornadoes.
    Factors of Vulnerability

    Man made factors:

    Settlement located in low lying coastal areas (direct impact);
    Poor building design, or construction;
    Insufficient lead time for warning and evacuation;
    Non compliance with evacuation procedures;
    Inadequate shelter.
