STH stormwatch : Cyclone Thane, first cyclone (and last) cyclone of the year in the Bay of Bengal


 


Incredibly, as the year draws to an end, the first and most certainly the last cyclone to form in the Bay of Bengal in 2011 has made landfall on the shores of Tamil Nadu.
It is just this sort of weather phenomenon that STH along with IMD (Sikkim) has established an SMS based early warning system which worked well in 2011 and which we hope to expand in 2012
