SaveTheHills as a part of its 'STH stormwatch' program maintains a close vigil on adverse weather activities in the Bay of Bengal using the internet since the bay is a notorious hatchery of cyclones.
Over the years we have (when necessary) sent EW messages to alert/warn communities as well as organizations on the position/ movement of major weather systems.
Very Severe Cyclone 'Phailin' has been extensively covered in earlier posts in this blog - this slide show is a collection of IR images made from 08Oct2013 ,(when we first reported on it) until 15Oct2013 when its effect in the Darjeeling-Sikkim Himalaya waned.
This has been made in order to generate awareness on extreme events, the frequency and intensity of which are increasing and which most probably is the result of climate change and human activity.
We hope this and an earlier slideshow will help towards this end.
