NotesEdit

  1. ^ Tropical cyclones have been named throughout most of the world since the 1960s, and worldwide since 2004.[1]
  2. ^ Tropical cyclones with maximum sustained winds of at 64 knots (74 mph, 119 km/h) has been considered a "hurricane" on the Beaufort scale since it was designed by Admiral Sir Francis Beaufort by 1806,[2] and is now classified a Category 1 on the Saffir–Simpson scale in the Atlantic and East Pacific Ocean, a typhoon in the West Pacific Ocean, a very severe cyclonic storm in the North Indian Ocean, a tropical cyclone in the South-West Indian Ocean, and a Category 3 on the Australian tropical cyclone intensity scale used for storms near Australia and in the South Pacific Ocean.
  3. ^ TCWC Jakarta named Tropical Cyclone Anggrek, but TCWC Perth declassified Anggrek as a tropical cyclone because gale-force winds never extended more than halfway around the system center.[10]
