Reviewer: Yellow Evan (talk · contribs) 18:36, 25 May 2013 (UTC) Because I want 2002 worldwide GT to happen, and the fact that I just put a GAN up, and the fact that this one of the few non-ATL GAn's up right now written by someone other than YE, I will review this article. YE Pacific Hurricane

  • "The 2002-03 South-West Indian Ocean cyclone season was among the earliest and latest seasons, lasting from September to May, as well as one of the most active." look weird the way it is "The 2002-03 South-West Indian Ocean cyclone season was among the longest lasting as well as one of the most active in the South-West Indian ocean." YE Pacific Hurricane 18:36, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Mention cyclone year in the lead. YE Pacific Hurricane 18:36, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
    • Ehh, I think it's kinda trivial. --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 00:38, 26 May 2013 (UTC)
  • How do the storm totals of the season compare to average? YE Pacific Hurricane 18:36, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
  • "In January of 2003, Severe Tropical Storm Ebula continued the steady activity, forming in the eastern portion of the basin." why are you mentioning every storm? YE Pacific Hurricane 18:36, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Mention Kalunde's impact in the lead. YE Pacific Hurricane 19:19, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
  • "simultaneous tropical cyclones in the Indian Ocean, of which three in the basin." you are missing a "were".
  • "simultaneous tropical cyclones in the Indian Ocean, of which three in the basin." link to tropical cyclones :P YE Pacific Hurricane 18:36, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
  • "Cyclone Hape formed shortly thereafter," see above. There is no need to mention every storm. Imagine what an EPAC season article would look like if we did. YE Pacific Hurricane 18:36, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
    • There isn't enough additional info to fill out the lede. I couldn't find many reports on the season (such as why it was so active, any broad information), so I tried out a different format. --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 00:38, 26 May 2013 (UTC)
  • " Lastly, Cyclone Manou was one only the sixth May tropical cyclones on record, making a rare landfall in southeastern Madagascar, killing 89 people and destroying thousands of houses." m "one". YE Pacific Hurricane 18:36, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
  • "tropical cyclones from the east coast of Africa to 90º E" link to 90th meridian west here. YE Pacific Hurricane 18:36, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
  • "As of the beginning of the season, the MFR moved the tropical cyclone year from August 1 to July 1.[1] "as" of to "at"
  • Any reason on why the season was so active? YE Pacific Hurricane 18:36, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
  • "In late August, a weak low-level circulation persisted near Diego Garcia". why do you link to tropical cyclone here. You do it above. I'd change it to atmospheric circulation. YE Pacific Hurricane 19:12, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
  • "becoming the most damaging in the country in 50 years.[9]" most damaging what? basketball? WP editor? YE Pacific Hurricane 19:12, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
    • Well, the whole sentence is "Nationwide, the storm left 375 families homeless and damaged crop fields, becoming the most damaging in the country in 50 years." - so I think it's clear, personally. --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 00:38, 26 May 2013 (UTC)
  • "At that time, the storm was moving to the southwest with improved outflow, moving toward the Mauritius outer island of Agaléga." the outflow was moving towards the island? YE Pacific Hurricane 19:12, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
  • "The landfall area does not usually experience tropical cyclones, and damage in Mozambique was minimal.[14]" you are making it sound like it hit Mozambique here. I'd reverse the order of the sentence to "In all, damage in Mozambique was minimal. Upon making landfall in Tanzania, it struck an area that does not usually experience tropical cyclones, where there were unofficial reports that Atang killed several fishermen and caused heavy rainfall with wind gusts to 148 km/h (92 mph).[11]" YE Pacific Hurricane 19:12, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
    • The source implies a Mozambique landfall, and actually refers to northern Mozambique rarely getting TC's. Does that make sense then? --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 00:38, 26 May 2013 (UTC)
  • "and Boura passed just north of St. Brandon on November 19, producing 54.5 mm (2.15 in) of rainfall and wind gusts to 106 km/h (66 mph).[11][15]" "to" to "of". YE Pacific Hurricane 19:12, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
  • "After turning to the northeast on November 25, Boura dissipated a day later to the north of Madagascar.[15]" no need for "to the", especially given you use it earlier. YE Pacific Hurricane 19:12, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
  • "For several days in mid-December, tropical cyclone forecast models anticipated a storm to form " why is "a" part of the wikilink. YE Pacific Hurricane 19:12, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
  • "The storm initially threatened to strike Mauritius, but were minimal due to the island" what was minimal? effects on Mauritius? YE Pacific Hurricane 19:12, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
  • There is overlinking in Delfina's section, I assume you likely did it first, but you don't match the consistency you do wit the rest of the article. YE Pacific Hurricane 19:12, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
  • "That day, MFR declared Ebula became extratropical,[18] " you are missing a "that" here :P YE Pacific Hurricane 19:12, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Add some distances to the article. YE Pacific Hurricane 19:12, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
    • Anywhere in particular that you'd like? There aren't all that many landmasses in the SWIO, so it would get redundant saying that it formed X km from Diego Garcia or Rodrigues. ♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 00:38, 26 May 2013 (UTC)
  • " and later that day MFR upgraded the system to Tropical Storm Fari" is it me or should there be a comma here? YE Pacific Hurricane 19:12, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Anything else for Fari? YE Pacific Hurricane 19:12, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
    • Believe it or not, I couldn't find anything. Minimal in RW, LN, or GN. ♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 00:38, 26 May 2013 (UTC)
  • "Subsequently, Gerry began weakening due to increasing wind shear, with the eye became disorganized." "became" to "becoming". YE Pacific Hurricane 19:12, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
  • " MFR estimated Hape reached peak 10–minute winds of 150 km/h (90 mph) on February 12," stick a "that" here. YE Pacific Hurricane
  • Add some UTC times to Hape's section. YE Pacific Hurricane 19:12, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
    • I added one (when it became a TC). Any others needed? --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 16:42, 27 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Add more to Japhet, it was quite significant. YE Pacific Hurricane 19:12, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Cut back on Kalunde's impact. YE Pacific Hurricane 19:12, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
  • "Early on April 12, Luma became extratropical as it merged with an approaching cold front.[45]" link to [[front (meteorology) here since this seems to be its first mention. YE Pacific Hurricane 19:12, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Why is the SE chart below the storm names? It should be the reverse IMO. YE Pacific Hurricane 19:12, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
  • In the SE chart, Kalunde is a VITC, not an ITC. YE Pacific Hurricane 19:12, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Make sure all refs you same author format. YE Pacific Hurricane
  • Ref 12 and 32 are missing parenthesis. YE Pacific Hurricane 19:12, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
    • I'm not sure why they're not showing up. ♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 16:42, 27 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Link to ReliefWeb on first useage. YE Pacific Hurricane 19:12, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
  • Refs 36, 37, and 57 should from LN, so either remove the accessed by LN crap on Ref 12 and 32. YE Pacific Hurricane 19:12, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
