Maarutha developed as a depression in the first fortnight of April. Additional hurricanes, beyond that of Irma, Jose and Maria, are likely over [3] Under favorable conditions, rapid deepening took place, and the system was classified as a depression on April 15. [71] The storm tracked westwards, and intensified further into a Severe Cyclone Storm, early on December 1. At its peak intensity, it was equivalent to a marginal Category 1 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson hurricane wind scale. Heavy rainfall peaking at Dondilohara in Chhattisgarh receiving 270 mm (11 in)[23] and Dabubagan in Odisha receiving 200 mm (7.9 in)[23] in 24 hours, along with sustained winds of 45 km/h (30 mph) affected the region,[24] causing at least a dozen villages to be submerged in floodwater and five bridges to be washed away. The system moved very fast under the influence of mid-latitude trough in Heavy damage to homes were reported in Balasore and Bhadrak districts, with an infant reported to have died in the former district following the collapse of a wall. This would make Maria only the second hurricane since 1928, along with Katrina of 2005, to have caused at least 1000 deaths in the U.S. or its territories. Only twelve Cyclonic Storms have developed over the Bay of Bengal this early in the year between 1891 and 2016. Of the 15 cyclones whose center directly affected Guadeloupe, there are 11 tropical storms, 1 category 2 hurricane, 2 major category 3 hurricanes and 1 major category 4 hurricane. The system moved fast under the influence of mid-latitude trough in westerlies lying over India in the middle and upper tropospheric levels and the anti-cyclonic cyclonic circulation lying to the northeast of the system. Guadeloupe, Dominica, Puerto Rico and other islands in the region. [83] The system produced 40 knots winds in the western quadrant and the JTWC upgraded to a tropical storm. IST. UPDATE: in post-season re-analysis, Cyclone Ernie of April 2017, northwest of Australia, was re-analyzed to be a Category 5 storm, while Super Typhoon Noru was re-analyzed to have only become a Category 4 storm. [63] The rains from the storm caused an epidemic, which caused the death of hundreds of cattle at Gumabirsinghur village in the Ganjam District, in Odisha. [64] As a precursor low, the storm caused heavy rain in Tamil Nadu including Chennai,[65] and caused 20 confirmed fatalities. After landfall, the storm steadily weakened due to land interaction, before weakening into a well-marked low-pressure area over Nagaland on May 31. Maria is regarded as the worst natural disaster in Dominican and Puerto Rican history. La saison cyclonique 2020 s'achève avec le plus grand nombre de temp... êtes (30) de ces 100 dernières années. [68] On November 29, the storm organized into a depression just off the southeast coast of Sri Lanka, and the IMD gave the storm the identifier BOB 07. Stronger-than-usual surface trade winds and unfavorable upper-level winds worked to keep 2017's typhoons weaker than usual, despite the presence of sea surface temperatures (SSTs) that were more than 1°C (1.8°F) warmer than average over much of the Northwest Pacific. We recognize our responsibility to use data and technology for good. The tropical cyclone … In the early hours of May 29, the IMD reported the storm to have reached Cyclonic storm intensity, naming it Mora. [42] It had maximum sustained wind speed of 150 km/h (category 1 hurricane). The official Regional Specialized Meteorological Centre in this basin is the IMD, while the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) releases unofficial advisories. Thanks go to Jasper Deng for this info.

Due to a heavy swell in the sea around the Andaman Islands, all ferries to Havelock Island from Port Blair were suspended on leaving nearly 1,500 tourists stranded. 5 (Maria in 2017). The cyclone produced severe flooding across Sri Lanka, India, Myanmar and Bangladesh and caused 15 deaths directly and 208 deaths indirectly. So don't think we've seen the last of disastrous hurricanes, forecasters say. After landfall, the system weakened into a Deep Depression in early hours of 17th, into a Depression in the morning and well marked low pressure area over central Myanmar and neighbourhood in the forenoon of 17th.[6]. [11] It was the 13th named storm, 8th hurricane, 5th major hurricane, and a 2nd Category 5 hurricane of the hyperactive 2017 Atlantic hurricane season. He worked for the NOAA Hurricane Hunters from 1986-1990 as a flight meteorologist. The 2017 Atlantic hurricane season was a hyperactive season and the costliest season on record. [70] The IMD followed suite and upgraded the storm to a Deep Depression, and soon afterwards to Cyclonic Storm Ockhi.

Irma’s landfall intensity of 180 mph winds in the Leeward islands is second only to the 1935 Florida Keys Labor Day Hurricane as the highest landfall intensity on record for an Atlantic hurricane. 00:31 Cyclone Dineo hits Inhambane, Mozambique 15th Feb 2017 • 360p. In Jharkhand, Latehar recorded 270 mm (11 in) of rain, and Pratapgarh in Rajasthan recorded 240 mm (9.5 in) of rain, along with sustained winds of 45 km/h. [77] As a Deep Depression, the system lashed the coast of Tamil Nadu[78] and Kerala, damaging infrastructure, and taking the lives of 72 more people in Kerala[79] and 14 in Tamil Nadu. Fin de vigilance pour la Guadeloupe et la Martinique about 2 years ago; Follow Me. 2,301 people were evacuated from their houses and 202,957 hectares (501,520 acres) of agricultural land were submerged. Above: VIIRS infrared satellite image of Hurricane Maria moving just west of St. Croix while at Cat 5 strength at 2:13 am EDT Wednesday, September 20, 2017. Email [58], On November 9, an area of low pressure formed in the Bay of Bengal, off the coast of Sri Lanka. During 2017, tropical cyclones formed within seven different tropical cyclone basins, located within various parts of the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans. [86], As a precursor low, the system caused massive floods and landslides in Indonesia and Thailand. Only Wilma (2005), Felix (2007) and Ike (2008) intensified more rapidly in 18 hours. [19] It concentrated into a well marked low pressure area over northern parts of central Bay of Bengal & adjoining north Bay of Bay on 11th morning and into a depression over north Bay of Bengal in the evening of 11th.). The season began with the formation Cyclone Maarutha on April 15 and ended with the dissipation of a deep depression on December 9. [47] Later that day, the IMD upgraded the system to Depression BOB 05 as the system developed formative banding surrounding a center of deep thunderstorm activity. 14,000 Crore Worth of Damage, Says Banerjee", "Eight killed as heavy rains lash Jharkhand", "IMD declares depression over north Bay of Bengal", "Depression causes heavy rain in west Bengal", "Depression over Bay of Bengal caused heavy rain in Hyderabad", "Depression over Bay of Bengal caused heavy rain in Orissa, Kills 3", "23 flights diverted from Kolkata due to bad weather", "Jessore records 109 mm rain from deep depression", "Maritime ports in Bangladesh hoist danger signal 3", "October 18 Significant Tropical Weather Advisory for the Indian Ocean", "IMD Bulletin No. Adm; [75] It moved further north-northeastwards towards Gujarat coast and encountered cooler sea surface temperatures and dry air intrusion from the Arabian Peninsula and was last noted as a well-marked low-pressure area off the coast of Gujarat. The North Indian Ocean cyclone season has no official bounds but cyclones tend to form between April and December with the two peaks in May and November.

This was the lowest total since 2012, and was well below the unusually high activity of 2014 - 2016, when eight or nine Category 5s appeared each year. 00:21 Cyclone Enawo hits Madagascar 8th Mar 2017 • 720p. [59] On November 17, BOB 06 weakened off the coast of north Odisha into a well-marked low-pressure area as it encountered strong wind shear, with the IMD issuing their final advisory on the system. Tue, 26 Sep 2017 19:04:00 +0200. It has also been a record season in other ways, with the formation of Arlene on April 19; making it the first April storm to form since Tropical Storm Ana of 2003, followed by the intensifying in an area of cold sea surface temperatures and moderate wind-shear. This map illustrates the tropical cyclone MARIA- 17 path with low, medium and strong wind impact zones observed and predicted at 18 September 2017. These almost-Cat 5s were Super Typhoon Lan in the Northwest Pacific (155 mph winds at 0 UTC October 21, 2017), and Hurricane Jose in the Atlantic (155 mph winds at 11 UTC September 9, 2017). At least 152 people died,[29] while nearly 2 million people were affected in over 160 villages, which were inundated due to heavy rains. At that time the storm was located in moderate vertical wind shear along with moderate poleward outflow. Hurricane Maria got its start as a tropical storm on September 16, a few hundred miles east of the northern Lesser Antilles Islands, and intensified a remarkable 70 mph in 18 hours as it approached the islands, hitting the island of Dominica as a Category 5 hurricane with 160 mph winds. Take control of your data. A strong monsoon surge prevented formation of systems until a deep depression formed over West Bengal in October and caused heavy rainfall. The Northwest Pacific averaged 2.9 Category 5 storms per year from 1990 - 2017, including five such storms in both 2015 and 2016. The two almost Cat 5s of 2017. [85], Due to heavy rains under the influence of the storm paddy harvests died down in some parts of Rupsa block in Balasore and some pockets in Mayurbhanj district in Odisha. All the fishing boats and trawlers over the North Bay had been advised to remain in shelter owing to roughconditions in the sea. Guadeloupe's history with tropical systems Current weather (br)=brush (ts)=Tropical Storm (bd)=Back Door,meaning coming from over land from opposite coast.Not all names are noted,also storms before 1950 were not named.Not every stat on every storm description is given. As a precursor low, the storm caused dangerous floods in West Bengal. Ernie is now analyzed as having a 95-kt (110 mph) increase in winds in 24 hours, which is tied with Hurricane Wilma (2005) for second place behind Hurricane Patricia (2015) for fastest 24-hour intensification rate on record. Under the influence of strong monsoon surge a disturbance developed over Bay of Bengal travelled westwards and intensified to an unnamed depression. Damages included loss of Tk 18 billion (US$223 million). Strong winds along with incessant rains slowed down traffic, uprooted trees and collapsed buildings. Irma also made five other destructive landfalls: Little Inagua, Bahamas (160 mph, September 8), Camaguey Islands, Cuba (160 mph, September 8); Cudjoe Key, FL (130 mph, September 10); Marco Island, FL (115 mph, September 10); and Naples, FL (115 mph, September 10). Of the 11 past within 30 km, there are there were 9 tropical (or downgraded) storms, 1 Cat hurricane. Warm sea surface temperatures and a pole-ward channel helped the system to consolidate, and on December 6, the IMD initiated advisories on Depression BOB 08, while the JTWC to issued a TCFA on the system,[82] as it intensified to a deep depression. The 2017 North Indian Ocean cyclone season was a below average season in the annual cycle of tropical cyclone formation. The following day, the system depicted flaring convection to the north of the low level circulation center. Irma made landfall in Barbuda, Sint Maarten, and the British Virgin Islands on September 6 with 180 mph winds, putting it in a tie for the second strongest landfalling tropical cyclone ever recorded globally. The IMD subsequently gave the system the identifier BOB 06. Torrential rain fell, peaking at Jessore receiving 109 mm (4.3 in) in 24 hrs. [68] During the next several days, the system moved into Bay of Bengal and slowly drifted westward, but the storm was unable to organize significantly, due to unfavorable conditions. Ranked as the third most costly tropical cyclone, Maria in 2017 impacted a number of countries, including Dominica, Dominican Republic, Guadeloupe (FRA), Haiti, Martinique (FRA), Puerto Rico, United States of America, Virgin Island (US), and Virgin Island (UK). The record number occurred in the El Niño year of 1997, which had twelve Category 5 storms--ten of them in the Northwest Pacific, where most of Earth’s Cat 5s occur. [76], As a precursor low, the system produced heavy rainfall in Sri Lanka, killing at least 13 people and displacing another 200,000. Initially tracking northwards, the system soon recurved towards the northeast before weakening into an area of low pressure early on October 22, while located over northeastern Bangladesh, Meghalaya, and southern Assam. Above: MODIS image of Hurricane Irma taken on Tuesday afternoon, September 5, 2017. After hitting Dominica, Maria reached peak intensity  (908 mb pressure, 175 mph winds) over the northeastern Caribbean; this pressure was the lowest on record for a hurricane in the eastern Caribbean (less than 20°N latitude, and between 75 - 60°W longitude). [19], At least 156 people have been confirmed dead following landslides caused in the Rangamati, Bandarban and Chittagong districts of Bangladesh along with 14 others in Northeast India caused by torrential rainfall.
