Why are cyclones named
Each cyclone is named one. Naming cyclones helps to identify each cyclone differently in the scientific community, disaster managers, media, and the general public. Because of this, it helps in spreading awareness among the people and to spread the warnings related to the cyclone to the people on a large scale. If two cyclones occur in a region at the same time, there is no confusion in such a situation because of their name. Which cyclone is being talked about can be easily understood.
What are the criteria to be followed while naming a cyclone?
– The proposed names associated with the cyclone should not be based on any political party, personality, religion, culture and gender.
– The name of the cyclone should be such that it does not hurt the feeling of any group or class.
– Do not be too cruel or harsh to hear the name of the cyclone.
– The name of the cyclone should be short and easily spoken and should not be objectionable to any member countries.
– The name of the cyclone should be only 8 letters of English.
