If there are any hurricane/typhoon/cyclone articles that you think should be created, list them here. It will go like this. Note: Not all of these will get an article. It is simply a list. Feel free to debate. Hurricanehink

(Note: If there is anything that was done, please remove them to prevent buildup and confusion. MarioJump83!)

General edit

  • Politics of tropical cyclones- Could cover censorship of tropical cyclones, also instances in which Hurricane Hunters couldn't enter tropical cyclones due to them being located in forbidden Cuban airspace (such as Hurricane Alberto (1982))
    • Also, naming, global warming, naming between warning centers (Hubert in SWIO, Yemyin), disaster debauchery (Katrina/Nargis), overall RSMC borders. ♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 15:04, 29 March 2010 (UTC)[reply]
      • Intresting article - i guess it could also cover when Tc's have had their designations removed by an agency. (ie TC 01U 2007-08}Jason Rees (talk) 16:32, 29 March 2010 (UTC)[reply]
  • List of tropical cyclone warning breakpoints
    • Ideal info for it would include history of the breakpoints, though just listing the breakpoints could work. Maybe include tropical cyclones which had the largest area of warning breakpoints, breakpoints which were the most common, or breakpoints that were the least common. Unofficial ones could be included, such as Canada breakpoints for the Atlantic basin. If a worldwide viewpoint would be too difficult, it could be List of National Hurricane Center tropical cyclone warning breakpoints or, ideally, a much shorter title. Hurricanehink (talk) 02:33, 11 February 2007 (UTC)[reply]
  • Hurricanes in Mexico (could be split into several articles and turned into parent article)
Will do, starting with Quintana Roo (man I thought Quintana Roo was in Louisana when I first heard of it.....) I like hurricanes 02:23, 12 November 2020 (UTC)[reply]
  • List of tropical cyclone that looped A number of Hurricanes off Florida have loop back over their tracks. Some, e.g. Henri 2021, have an open loop that brings the edges of the storm over the same area hours to days apart. A list of these would be useful to our readers. — Lentower (talk) 20:19, 23 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
    • Im not personally sure that such a list would be worth it or that useful since a lot of TC's stall like Henri or perform a cyclonic loop like Rewa.Jason Rees (talk) 20:44, 23 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
    I agree with Jason Rees, doesn't seem very useful overall. Skarmory (talk • contribs) 15:13, 14 January 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Tropical cyclones by year articles (back to 1977) edit

By basin edit

Atlantic edit

See also List of deadliest Atlantic hurricanes

No, due to lack of good info. Hurricane Eric
Agreed. It should just have a part in the deadly hurricanes page. Hurricanehink
Scratch what I said. It's one of the most recent 1,000+ death Atlantic storms. --♬♩ Hurricanehink (talk) 02:33, 5 April 2010 (UTC)[reply]
I will probably create this article soon. SMB99thx my edits 05:58, 11 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]
I won't give my time to build this as I am very busy. @LowercaseGuy: I've seen that you worked on 1860's storms lately, you can work on this one. MarioJump83! 09:58, 30 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I see what can I do. LowercaseGuy chow! 06:01, 1 May 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Since NC was created, I think only a Florida sub-article is warranted now. The effects weren't bad in Georgia, and that state didn't have the level of preps/cancelations/evacuations that Florida did. ♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 16:48, 28 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]
I disagree. SMB99thx my edits 02:25, 19 November 2020 (UTC)[reply]
After some consideration, I agree. Though, the creation of this article might involve getting Hurricane Dorian into GA. SMB99thx my edits 03:49, 19 November 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Another one. This appears to be requested for a long time now. SMB99thx my edits 02:25, 19 November 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Eastern Pacific edit

I'm going to do this when the time allows. MarioJump83! 00:49, 25 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I'm not sure if Central Pacific tropical cyclones should be created. SMB99thx my edits! 04:37, 6 December 2020 (UTC)[reply]

The following are landfalling hurricanes since 1966, some of which could possibly use articles, but others probably wouldn't have enough info. ♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 17:57, 22 July 2011 (UTC)[reply]

There is also the 1931 Santa Rosalía hurricane, which killed over 100 people per [1], although it might be too early to do effectively. Miss Madeline | Talk to Madeline 19:27, 22 July 2011 (UTC)[reply]

Yea, I remember seeing that on the project request page, and I'm precisely worried about the time period. Then again, this had no problem finding information, although I do feel that Atlantic-side Mexican storms have more info. --♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 20:55, 22 July 2011 (UTC)[reply]
Here are a few others

Western Pacific edit

Will do, if there is any data on it... MarioJump83! 10:07, 6 February 2021 (UTC)[reply]
  • There is a Draft:Typhoons in Zhejiang. However, after discussing with other project members, I believe China should be handled as a whole on a year to year basis, with splits by date, such as 2000-present. ♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 14:29, 4 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]
    Hurricanehink, To save the work we have, i have moved the draft into what you have suggested. SMB99thx my edits 12:56, 8 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]
From Hilda to 35W, these are the storms in my mind that need their own article.LowercaseGuy chow! 07:58, 21 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Maria is the last Hurricanehink suggestion, while Connie and Doris had their marks on U.S. military history. MarioJump83! 06:15, 21 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I'll working on this by myself. MarioJump83! 06:15, 21 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
These two are the last redirects that was touched by LTA Sidowpknbkhihj I believe could be turned into article. The next three, Eve (1999), Atsani (2015), and Nock-ten (2004) aren't really distinct. MarioJump83! 06:15, 21 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Hurricanehink:, @Destroyeraa: I think the creation of these articles, even if they are stubs, could help to deny Sidowpknbkhihj socks from keep adding their versions of these topics into Wikipedia. Main MO of Sidowpknbkhihj socks are to translate their creations from Japanese Wikipedia into English Wikipedia (and their creations are generally typhoons that affected Japan) - and once they do, they won't expand these articles at all. Sometimes, these articles disregard WP:MOS, which led me to clean up some of these articles. If we create them and actually expand these creations, that can help denying them of their work. SMB99thx my edits 04:46, 4 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]
I agree most of these are doable articles, but we should aim for more than stubs to make them. Ideally they will have more content than what's in the season article (which should be easy, since most WPAC seasons are stubs). ♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 14:29, 4 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Hurricanehink:, thanks! Currently, i'm doing a project based on my preferences and your suggestion. SMB99thx my edits 13:47, 7 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Led into retirement. SMB99thx my edits
Impact led into a massive aftermath. SMB99thx my edits
Record breaking typhoons. SMB99thx my edits 01:34, 26 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]
These are China-impacting storms whose damages are widely reported enough to be available for an article. MarioJump83! 06:20, 21 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Largest eye, also damaging tropical storm in Korea. SMB99thx my edits 10:27, 31 October 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Retired Philippine typhoons. SMB99thx my edits 12:57, 9 November 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Will be working on Kathy

SarikaHaimaParmaMolaveWelpring (talk) 15:01, 13 December 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Took an erratic track, its duration has enough history to have an article. SarikaHaimaParmaMolaveWelpring (talk) 03:02, 19 December 2022 (UTC)[reply]

North Indian edit

Individual storms
I'll work on it when I have time. 🦠🌀𝕾𝖚𝖕𝖊𝖗 𝕮𝖞𝖈𝖑𝖔𝖓𝖎𝖈 𝕾𝖙𝖔𝖗𝖒 𝕮𝖔𝖗𝖔𝖓𝖆🌀🦠 18:05, 15 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]

  • Cyclone 4B (1999)- 80 deaths, prelude to devestating storm weeks later, possibly needs different title
MarioJump83, I abandoned it, I can't find enough info. 🦠🌀𝕾𝖚𝖕𝖊𝖗 𝕮𝖞𝖈𝖑𝖔𝖓𝖎𝖈 𝕾𝖙𝖔𝖗𝖒 𝕮𝖔𝖗𝖔𝖓𝖆🌀🦠 16:00, 17 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]

South-West Indian Ocean edit

The links provided here is now inaccessible. MarioJump83!

Australia edit

will be doing soon.. especially because my mom comes from a place in Queensland called Airmack. Stay safe, Cyclone Toby 03:56, 2 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]
  • Individual season articles 1963-1969
Jason Rees is working on Theodore. SMB99thx my edits
I want to note that most of the storms here are largely non-impactful. You may still create the articles, but if there is no more stuff to do, then I'll merge it. MarioJump83! 14:10, 13 April 2021 (UTC)[reply]

South Pacific edit

Apparently, it appears that Jason Rees are working on this since 2012 (!!!). However, it's so long now. SMB99thx my edits

South atlantic edit

  • Tropical storm Akará (I really think this storm deserves its own article. Tropical storms in the area where this system formed are rare)
  • Individual season articles 1958-1969
    • Not needed until more information comes available.Jason Rees (talk) 05:21, 2 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Jason Rees has been working on Beti since 2013. SMB99thx my edits
