Storms Of Indian Seas Laid To Rest, No Impact Over Indian Region

October 25, 2023 2:50 PM |

Twin cyclonic storms formed over the Indian Seas, early in the post-monsoon season.  Thankfully, both the storms have moved away without causing stormy activities along and off the coastline on either side. Tej and Hamoon have simply become less significant now, over the respective regions. These are likely to get filled up and become the least significant by this evening.

Extremely Severe Cyclonic Storm ‘Tej’ in the Arabian Sea headed northwest and struck Yemen-Oman border areas as a Severe Cyclonic Storm. It rapidly weakened to a depression after making landfall and has been reduced to just a broad cyclonic circulation over that area. Tej was the second tropical storm of 2023 in the Arabian Sea. Earlier, an Extremely Severe Cyclonic Storm, with an exceptionally long sea travel between 06-19 June 2023, struck Naliya( Gujarat).

Bay of Bengal also hosted a category V equivalent tropical cyclone during pre-monsoon season.  The tropical storm weakened before crossing the coast.  ‘Mocha’ struck Sittwe ( Myanmar) as an extremely severe cyclonic storm on 14 May 2023.

Simultaneous occurrence of tropical storms in the Indian Seas is not very commonly seen, and that too during the early part of the post-monsoon season. Normally, there is a lag between the withdrawal of the southwest monsoon season and the commencement of stormy activities over the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal. The frequency of tropical storms increases with the onset of northeast monsoon. Early emergence of cyclones this season leaves plenty of chance of having a repeat before the cessation of the season.
