List of cyclone names in the Indian Ocean
Since then the names of the tropical cyclones are assigned from the common list prepared by the member countries. Below is the list:
Bangladesh Onil Ogni Nisha Giri Helen Chapala Ockhi Fani India Agni Akash Bijli Jal Lehar Megh Sagar Vayu Maldives Hibaru Gonu Aila Keila Madi Roanu Makunu Hikaa Myanmar Pyarr Yemyin Phyan Thane Na-Nauk Kyant Daye Kyarb Oman Baaz Sidr Ward Murjan Hudhud Nada Luban Maha Pakistan Fanoos Nargis Laila Nilam Nilofar Vardah Titli Bulbul Sri Lanka Mala Rashmi Bandu Mahasen Priya Asiri Gigum Soba Thailand Mukda Khai-muk Phet Phailin Komen Mora Phethai Amphan
In the event of all these above names getting exhausted, an additional list of storm names will be added by the eight south Asian countries.
Storm names till Lehar (named by India) have been used. The above list clearly suggests, the next cyclone /storm will be called Madi (by Maldives).
Weather models at Skymet show that there are chances of formation of another system in the Indian Ocean in the cyclone season (Oct-Dec). Cyclones which form in the month of December have major impact on Tamil Nadu.
