Hurricane update - 27 April

Tropical cyclone 01B has formed in the southern Bay of Bengal, and promises to become a serious hurricane. Although the forecast does not range beyond 3 days, the storm will be packing winds of 85 knots by that time (that's 95 mph). Its point of landfall is not within the forecasting scope, but could be anywhere from Bangladesh south into Myanmar. If the rate of intensification, currently forecast, continues, then cyclone 01B could well be quite a devastating system.


  1. Oh Dear I hope not.It must be terrible to live where these things happen.Prayers being said Guido.Take Care God Bless Kath astoriasand

  2. I just can't imagine how horrible it would be to live in an area where these types of storm exsist.  The few wind storms we have here in Washington are bad enough but they are nothing like a cyclone, hurricane or tornado. Linda in WA
