1995–96 Australian region cyclone season

The 1995–96 Australian region cyclone season was an active Australian cyclone season, with Western Australia experiencing a record number of landfalling intense storms in the Pilbara region. The season produced a total of 19 tropical cyclones, of which 14 developed into named storms and 9 reached severe tropical cyclone status. The strongest of the season was Severe Tropical Cyclone Olivia, which also produced the highest recorded wind gust on record of 408 km/h (253 mph). Though several systems impacted land, the general sparsity of population centres in Australia limits the scale of damage. One person was confirmed to have been killed and cumulative losses were estimated at A$77 million (US$58.5 million).

The name Chantal has been used for eight tropical cyclones worldwide: seven in the Atlantic Ocean and one in the South-West Indian Ocean.

Tropical cyclones in 2020 Tropical cyclones by year

During 2020, tropical cyclones formed within seven different tropical cyclone basins, located within various parts of the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans. During the year, 141 tropical cyclones formed in bodies of water known as tropical cyclone basins. Of these, 104, including three subtropical cyclones in the South Atlantic Ocean and three tropical-like cyclones in the Mediterranean, were named by various weather agencies when they attained maximum sustained winds of 35 knots. The strongest storm of the year was Yasa, peaking with a pressure of 899 hPa (26.55 inHg) and with 10-minute sustained winds of 250 km/h (155 mph). The deadliest storm of the year was Eta which caused 175 fatalities and another 100+ to be missing in Central America and the US, while the costliest storm of the year was Laura, with a damage cost around $19.1 billion in the Greater Antilles, The Bahamas, and the Gulf Coast of the United States.

Tropical cyclones in 2021 Tropical cyclone year

In 2021, tropical cyclones have formed in six major bodies of water, commonly known as tropical cyclone basins. Tropical cyclones will be assigned names by various weather agencies if they attain maximum sustained winds of 35 knots. During this year, 136 systems have formed and 85 were named, including one subtropical depression and excluding one system, which was unofficial. One storm was given two names by the same RSMC. So far, the most intense storm of the year was Typhoon Surigae, with maximum 10-minute sustained wind speeds of 220 km/h (140 mph) and a minimum pressure of 895 hPa (26.43 inHg). The deadliest tropical cyclone so far was Cyclone Seroja, which caused 272 fatalities in Indonesia, while the costliest so far was Hurricane Ida, which caused an estimated $65.25 billion USD in damage after striking Louisiana and the Northeastern United States. Five Category 5 tropical cyclones were formed in 2021.
