  • A hurricane is an intense tropical storm with powerful winds and heavy rain.
  • Other names for a hurricane include cyclone, typhoon and tropical storm.
  • While they are essentially the same thing, the different names usually indicate where the storm took place. Tropical storms that form in the Atlantic or Northeast Pacific (near the United States) are called hurricanes, those that form near in the Northwest Pacific (near Japan) are called typhoons and those that form in the South Pacific or Indian oceans are called cyclones.
  • Hurricanes usually form in tropical areas of the world.
  • Hurricanes develop over warm water and use it as an energy source.
  • Hurricanes lose strength as they move over land.
  • Coastal regions are most at danger from hurricanes.
  • As well as violent winds and heavy rain, hurricanes can also create tornadoes, high waves and widespread flooding.
  • Hurricanes are regions of low atmospheric pressure (also known as a depression).
  • The wind flow of hurricanes in the southern hemisphere is clockwise while the wind flow of hurricanes in the northern hemisphere is counterclockwise.
  • Weather in the eye of a hurricane is usually calm.
  • The eye of a hurricane can be anywhere from 2 miles (3.2 kilometres) in diameter to over 200 miles (320 kilometres) but they are usually around 30 miles (48 kilometres).
  • The winds around the eye of a hurricane are usually the strongest.
  • Hurricanes can be tracked by weather satellites and weather radar closer to land.
  • Hurricanes have led to the death of around 2 million people over the last 200 years.
  • The 1970 Bhola Cyclone that struck Bangladesh killed over 300000 people.
  • In 2005 Hurricane Katrina killed over 1800 people in the United States and caused around $80 billion dollars worth of property damage. The city of New Orleans was hit particularly hard with levee breaches leading to around 80% of the city being flooded.
Tropical cyclones usually have catastrophic consequences, causing immense damage to life and property. Storms are seasonal phenomenon appearing in post and pre-Monsoon seasons in India. They are more frequent in the post-Monsoon season, as the country awaits the onset of Northeast Monsoon.
Climatologically, these storms forming in the Bay of Bengal generally strike the Andhra Pradesh, Odisha and West Bengal coasts.
Date of occurrence and other information related to such storms need to be stored for future reference, historical records and to overcome any confusion about these storms. Moreover, the practice of naming helps in quick identification of storms because names are presumed to be far easier to remember than numbers and technical terms.

Prior to 2000, there was no practice of naming cyclones in the Indian seas. However, the 1999 cyclonic storm which ripped Odisha, triggered the necessity of naming storms.
The WMO (World Meteorological Organisation) envisaged a panel, comprising of members from 8 countries, to assign names to storms forming in the Indian Ocean. These countries have prepared 64 names which have been in use on a rotational basis. The names of the countries are listed alphabetically and names given by them are used sequentially column-wise.
At present, column 6 is in use and the next storm to be formed will be named Vardha. This name was given by Pakistan. The name of the current Cyclone Nada has been given by Oman.
