Tropical Storm Vamei near the equator in December 2001

This is a list of all tropical cyclones that have existed between 3°N and 3°S of the equator. Tropical cyclones are relatively rare in this region, particularly outside of the Northwestern Pacific Ocean. This is primarily due to a weak Coriolis effect within the region, and only seventeen known storms have formed since records began.
