Welcome to the Hurricane Wiki

Welcome to the Hurricanes Wiki, a guide to tropical systems, the agencies that track them, and various how-to's and preparation strategies to help you prepare for the next big storm. The wiki was founded in May 2006 and relaunched in April 2007 after closing out for a while. While we do operate a wiki section with articles and information on tropical cyclones, our main focus point and priority are the forums, which see nearly constant activity in the heat of the hurricane season.

2013 and 2012-13 Storm Names

Only a small number of typhoon (WPAC), southern hemisphere, and North Indian Ocean names are shown because of the fact that any amount of storms can be produced each year in these basins. Only four names are shown in the Central Pacific out of the forty-eight due to the low number of storms each year. Also, since Jakarta and Port Moresby areas of responsibilities usually produce a small amount to no storms each year, none of their names are shown here; they will only be shown here if a storm earns a name in those areas. You can look up the full list of names from these basins, but for this website, only a certain amount of possible used names are shown. In addition you can mouse-over the names to view their statistics, and clicking them will lead you to their forum discussion.

Bureau of Meteorology

The Bureau of Meteorology is an Executive Agency of the Government of Australia. The institution provides weather services to Australia as well as surrounding areas. It is now the main provider of weather forecasts, warnings and observations to the Australian public.

Tropical Cyclone Warning Centres

The Bureau of Meteorology also has three Tropical Cyclone Warning Centre (TCWC) offices that are located in Perth, Darwin and Brisbane. Each TCWC serves to track and forecast tropical cyclones within their area of responsibility. The TCWC in Perth tracks all cyclones located between 90˚E and 125˚E, covering the south-eastern parts of the Indian Ocean. The TCWC in Darwin tracks cyclones located between 125˚E and 141˚E, covering an area which consists of the Timor Sea, Arafura Sea, Banda Sea and the western Gulf of Carpentaria. The TCWC in Brisbane tracks cyclones located between 141˚E and 160˚E, covering the eastern Gulf of Carpentaria and the Coral Sea.

Hurricane Hall of Fame

Below is the list of inductees into Hurricane Wiki's Forum:Hurricane Hall of Fame. The years do not represent the year the hurricanes existed but rather the "class" they belonged to during induction. Hurricane Wiki has been running an annual Hurricane Hall of Fame, where the community votes on storms to be inducted into the hall of fame.

Atlantic List:

Notes: Before 2007, the Hall of Fame was much less organized. The number of storms elected each year varied. When I compiled the Excel file, I broke it into ten storms elected per year for 2004-2006. I actually started the five storm per year format in 2006, but retroactively pushed it to ten to deal with overflow from the first two years. I also added the Historical Electorate in 2007. The only pre-1875 storm elected before 2007 was the Last Island Hurricane (1856). The automatic inductions were in no particular order and inducted as I found them. The last pre-2004 automatics were inducted in 2008. Note that before 2007, the Two Seasons Rule was not in effect; the required gap was instead just one season. However, Hurricane Isabel was the only storm to be elected after just one season. In 2010, the cost criteria for automatic induction was raised from $5 billion to $10 billion. This has no effect on the storms already in but rather was intended to make it more difficult for contemporary storms to gain induction automatically. Hurricane Gustav was the last storm to gain automatic induction with less than $10 billion worth of damage ($6.6 billion).

You can vote for this year's inductees here.

East Pacific List:

Note: The criteria for automatic induction in the East Pacific are 1,000 deaths and/or $2 billion in damage (pre-2004 storms adjusted to 2004 inflation). According to my HOF records, Pauline was inducted automatically, however does not appear to meet the criteria. The reason for this is unclear. It is possibly the result of an erroneous damage figure.
