How are cyclones named?
The naming of cyclones is done by World Meteorological Organization/United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (WMO/ESCAP) Panel on Tropical Cyclones (PTC), according to an NDTV report.
Thirteen countries on the panel, including India, Bangladesh, Myanmar, Pakistan, the Maldives, Oman, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Iran, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Yemen, name cyclones in the region.
In 2020, a new list of names was released that had 169 names of cyclones, having 13 suggested names each from 13 countries.
Meanwhile, the Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa has asked district in-charge Ministers and Deputy Commissioners to visit affected areas and carry out rescue and relief works as Cyclone Tauktae wreaking havoc in the coastal districts of the state on the day.
Meanwhile, gusty winds and heavy rains lashed several parts of Goa on the day due to the cyclonic storm, uprooting electric poles and affecting power supply in many parts of the coastal state, officials said.(With inputs from PTI) Moneycontrol News Tags:#Current Affairs#cyclone#Cyclone Tauktae#India first published: May 16, 2021 02:03 pm
