Force Thirteen’s latest animation has been released covering the 2021 North Indian Ocean Cyclone Season which featured various storms from Cyclone Tauktae, which brought significant damage to the Western Indian coast, as well as Cyclone Guhab-Shaheen which made landfall on Oman’s northern coast near Muscat in the Gulf of Oman. The season saw 5 named storms, 3 hurricane-strength storms, and only 1 major hurricane-strength storm: Tauktae, which became the strongest cyclone to make landfall over the state of Gujarat in India since 1998, and one of the strongest cyclones to ever affect the west coast of the nation. Tauktae was also the strongest storm of the season, and the most deadliest, with 174 deaths associated with the cyclone. Cyclone Yaas was the costliest storm of the season, with monetary damages of $2.4bn.
