A new world record for a tropical cyclone – National Geographic

WMO records also include original weather records, such as tropical cyclones (including hurricanes and hurricanes) that formed in different parts of the world. according to this record A new record is in the making.

A trópusi ciklonok, a hurrikánok vagy a tájfunok ugyanazt az időjárási jelenséget jelentik, az elnevezés pusztán attól függ, mely régióban alakul ki a vihar.

the Earth Observatory Tropical cyclone Freddy, then, made a very long journey of 15 days in the Indian Ocean and reached Madagascar on the 21st. However, this was not the end of her activities, she drifted to the Mozambique Channel, then Mozambique and Zimbabwe, and even under the influence of the Earth she did not lose enough strength to be able to make another tour.

On March 8, after leaving the mainland region of Africa, it was again near the southern part of Madagascar. According to forecasts, it is expected to reach Mozambique again, and it is likely to dissipate in a few days. Based on accumulated hurricane energy (ACE), Freddie is ranked 2nd in the world ranking, on March 7 it was the 72nd, and the record holder was the 85th (Hurricane Ioke, 2006). This scale is calculated based on the wind speeds of the hurricanes measured every 6 hours, the benefit is that we can get a unified picture of all the storms in a whole season, i.e. we can know how strong the tropical cyclone season is from a given year, and with that we can get a sense of the long-term trends.

Freddy also presumably owes his particularly long life to the fact that the area is affected by the La Nina condition, before that we last saw similar in the Indian Ocean in 2000 (with the names Hoda and Leon Eileen), which was also the year of La Nina.

The previous world record hurricane was Hurricane John in the eastern Pacific Ocean in 1994, which was born near the coast of Mexico on August 11 (but was preceded by an air system that formed in Africa!), then drifted northwest and north, reached the North Pole over the ocean and finally His adventurous voyage in the relative proximity of the Aleutian Islands ended on September 13th. Not only was John the longest-lived, but it was also the tropical cyclone that traveled the longest distance (11,531 km).
