Twin Tropical Cyclones in the Indian Ocean

There are two tropical cyclones currently active in the Indian Ocean – one each side of the Equator, and therefore spinning in opposite directions.

You can follow their development on nullschool (which will also let you look back if you missed them), or read more about them at severe weather Europe.
For more on the Coriolis Effect, and why the storms are spinning in opposite directions, have a look at our YouTube video.

For resources designed for teaching about tropical cyclones, covering the processes, hazards, impacts and responses associated with the development of Tropical Cyclones look here. Aimed at KS3 (11-14) and including lesson, homework and assessment resources, the flexible scheme of work uses contemporary case studies
