Rapid heating of Indian Ocean worsening cyclones, say scientists
Rising ocean temperatures caused by climate crisis increasing number of cyclones and intensity of storms, say experts
India’s cyclone season is being made more intense by the rapidly heating Indian Ocean, scientists have warned.
Last week India was battered by Cyclone Tauktae, an unusually strong cyclone in the Arabian Sea, resulting in widespread disruption. This week, another severe storm, Cyclone Yaas, formed in the Bay of Bengal, leading to more than a million people being evacuated into safe shelters.
