Possible major cycloneEdit

The GFS is showing an intense tropical cyclone in a couple days in the Bay of Bengal. Could this be Maarutha? TG Merry Christmas! 23:37, January 4, 2017 (UTC)


Cyclonic Storm MaaruthaEdit

Snd its here. 35 kt right now and heading towards Myanmarr (not Irrawady Delta thankfully).-- 02:32, April 16, 2017 (UTC)

Dead... ~ KN2731 {talk} 12:07, April 19, 2017 (UTC)



Cyclonic Storm MoraEdit

Formed yesterday and it's heading north to Chittagong and India. 16:22, May 29, 2017 (UTC)

Severe Cyclonic Storm MoraEdit

Well well, it looks like we got our first SCS this year, as it was upgraded into that category. 17:09, May 29, 2017 (UTC)

The latest advisories from both agencies bring it to the 60-65 KT range, and then directly move Mora into Bangladesh.... Remember Akash? Looks pretty chilling, anyway. -- 21:50, May 29, 2017 (UTC)

Mora intensified into a Category 1 in 1-min mean. Getting ready to make landfall already. :) 01:57, May 30, 2017 (UTC)

Deep Depression MoraEdit

Mora made landfall moments before and weakened into a deep depression. It will dissipate soon. :) 18:33, May 30, 2017 (UTC)

Dead. :) 00:29, May 31, 2017 (UTC)


Land Depression 02Edit

The first system since July. It's over West Bengal and has already claimed three lives. Designated "97B.INVEST". ~ Steve Talk PageMy Edits📧 23:10, October 9, 2017 (UTC)

It was briefly a deep depresion, but it has now weakened back into a depression. Its also stimulating rainfall across India. 11:51, October 10, 2017 (UTC)



Located in the Bay of Bengal. Will this be Ockhi? ~ Steve Talk PageMy Edits📧 03:54, October 16, 2017 (UTC)

Now a tropical depression. Anonymous 2.0 (talk) 10:35, October 16, 2017 (UTC)

Not yet. The IMD isn't issuing any advisories at the moment. All I see is that it's on the tropical weather outlook on the IMD site (click RSMC Bulletin), and marked as 98B. I also saw the page history for "2017 North Indian Ocean cyclone season" on Wikipedia and Iune reverted the addition of so-called "BOB 05". Next time, check IMD for updates as Wikipedia isn't always reliable. ~ Steve Talk PageMy Edits📧 00:47, October 17, 2017 (UTC)
