Recall of 1994 Severe cyclone - As Chennai fears from a Severe Cyclone Thane

Anyone has memory of 1994 Severe Cyclone that crossed Chennai) – It was the destructive cyclone to hit Chennai in last 20 years or even more.

This cyclone i witnessed it first hand… me this created havoc in Chennai. 24 cm rainfall in 24hrs coupled with 120 km/hr winds…. The cyclone scared the shit out of me. I watched the high winds with power cut without sleep. Still its scary. Hope Cyclone Thane doesnot make any destruction like this.


  1. I have a feeling it is Jal part 2.. Same path and same slow system, hinting towards weakening trend.

  2. i dont think so. except GFS all model are saying it will intensify and will make landfall as a significant cyclone

  3. Yes, It'll make landfall as a Cyclone !
