STH stormwatch : The newborn gets a name - "Cyclone NILAM"

At a time when the world news is being dominated by the Superstorm SANDY making landfall on the eastern seaboard of the USA, a storm which STH first reported on 26Oct2012 has now intensified to a full blown cyclone and has been given a name today (Viz Cyclone NILAM).
NILAM therefore, is the first cyclone in the Bay of Bengal in 2012.
