  • Tropical cyclone is a rapidly rotating storm system with low pressure centre and spiral arrangement of thunderstorms resulting in heavy rainfall.
  • Tropical cyclones in summer: The three-fourth of tropical cyclones originate in Bay of Bengal and rest in Arabian Sea.
  • Most of the storms of Bay of Bengal move towards north or north-west and take a curve towards north-east and strike Bangladesh and the Arakan Coast of Myanmar. These are quite severe and cause damage to life and property.
  • Arabian Sea born storms are formed in May and move away from Indian coast in north western direction and dissipate in sea.
