I know some of you might disagree with the mid-importance rating, but if left 500,000 homeless and was among the most destructive cyclones in Sri Lanka history. Hurricanehink (talk) 20:09, 5 January 2007 (UTC)


B-class, already up for GA. Might even be an A-class article once GA is passed. —Cuiviénen 00:21, 7 January 2007 (UTC)

Cyclone 04B and comments[edit]

Should there be a redirect for Cyclone 04B to this title? I left some queries in HTML comments where I couldn't understand the text.Andplus 09:19, 25 October 2007 (UTC)

Not really, as Cyclone 04B is a designation given to cyclones in many years: 2001, 2002 and 2005 all had a 04B. Furthermore Cyclone 04B in 1999 killed over 80 people, significantly more than this storm. I suppose there could be limited utility in making a redirect from Cyclone 04B (1999).--Nilfanion (talk) 09:55, 25 October 2007 (UTC)


"3-minute sustained: 165 km/h (105 mph) 1-minute sustained: 120 km/h (75 mph)" How can a 3-minute sustained be higher than a 1-minute sustained? Pål Jensen (talk) 21:20, 25 December 2015 (UTC)

  • Different warning centers = Different Estimates. In this case the IMD thought that the system was more intense than the JTWC did.Jason Rees (talk) 23:04, 25 December 2015 (UTC)
