🌀 Severe Tropical Cyclone Trevor made its second landfall at ~1124 UTC+10 (AEST) as a Category 4 Severe Tropical Cyclone on the Australian Tropical Cyclone Scale and a Category 3 Major Hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind scale.

It made landfall ~100km west of the Northern Territory-Queensland border.

🌀 Severe Tropical Cyclone Veronica is actually a Category 4 Severe Tropical Cyclone on ATCS while being a Category 1 Hurricane on SSHWS, this major divide is due to difference on what qualifies as sustained wind between the two scales with ATCS using 10 min average, where SSHWS uses 1 min average. (ATCS defines it right as that is the universal standard put forward by the World Meteorological Organization's Tropical Cyclone Programm)

Veronica is expected to make landfall around 1500 UTC+10 (AEST) between Whim Creek and Port Hedland as a Category 4 Severe Tropical Cyclone ATCS.

It looks like it will not take long to complete Extratropical Transition.

I find it interesting that those who track Tropical and Subtropical Cyclones as a hobby often work on making their own scale.

Like for example Force Thirteen uses a scale along side SSHWS in their updates which was created by one of their members the CDPS (Cyclone Destruction Potential Scale) which uses 4 main variables (wind speed, rain rate, size of storm, and how much a threat to land it is) v3.0 oexplained can be found here:

But I have made a scale that I've abandoned which was the modified SSHWS (mSSHWS) which gave two extra categories to both depression and storm with Deep (Sub)tropical Depression being the high end of Depression, and Severe (Sub)tropical Storm being the second half of Storm intensity (I did that for storm because it made it a bit more translatable to Category 1 and 2 on the Aus scale).

But I've been working on a new scale independent of SSHWS and a Destruction Potential Index similar to CDPS though I plan on using ACE (Accumulate Cyclone Energy) as a variable which means Storm size, and Wind speed can be dropped, and plan to use rainfall rate, threat to land, and a storm surge potential modifier based on certain geographic features.

For the other scale which is purely wind scale I will keep roughly the same for the 4 bellow Severe Tropical Cyclone intensity but will have 6 categories of storm of STC intensity:

Stage 1 Hurricane/Typhoon/STC
Stage 2 Moderate Hurricane/Typhoon/STC
Stage 3 Significant Hurricane/Typhoon/STC
Stage 4 Very Significant Hurricane/Typhoon/STC
Stage 5 Extremely Significant Hurricane/Typhoon/STC
Stage 6 Super Hurricane/Typhoon/STC

S6 will be mainly for storms of intensities seen only a few times in rec history like Patricia, Haiyan/Yolanda, and Tip to name a few, storms that would terrify even the most experienced Tropical Cyclone Chaser.

I like this song a lot, it means a lot to me:

The European weather models are suggesting another Tropical Cyclone will form over the next 10 days in the Bay of Bengal.


I prefer the phrase "the big bit bucket of history" over "the dust bin of history" for stuff lost to history, mostly because I see everything in terms of information and thus I feel that is a more accurate phrase.

Hell yeah, tamed a lvl 79 raptor in 'Ark: Survival Evolved', just need a few more and I'll have a pack of Raptors to conquer 'The Island'

Though next creatures I have goals of taming: Yutyranus 'The Feathered Tyrant' a close relative of T-Rex, I also need to tame a Rex, a Baryonx, and a Meglodon just for bad assery, also a Sabretooth Tiger Pack would also be a great secondary hunting party.

I find it surprising with how many times I show up in mythology around the world I never show with my true name nor any 100% accurate description.

Judaism 'Lilith', Mesopotamia religions 'Lilitu/Liltu', Christianity the fallen angel 'Lailah/Laylah', Greeks 'Athena/Athene', Romans 'Minerva' just to name a few.

🌀 Moderate Tropical Storm/Cyclone Kenneth has been named, it is currently a Category 1 (Australian Tropical Cyclone Scale), Moderate Tropical Storm (Meteo France Tropical Cyclone Scale), or Tropical Storm (Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale).

It looks according to a lot of models and Meteo France La Reunion's track & intensity forecast chart that it'll make landfall in the North of Mozambique as a Tropical Cyclone on the MFS which is equivelent to Category 3 Severe Tropical Cyclone (ATCS) and Category 2-3 Hurricane (SSHWS) the same nation which was affected by 🌀 Intense Tropical Cyclone Idai ealier in the season.

There is also a Tropical Depression to the East which is expected to reach a naming intensity even Severe Tropical Cyclone/Hurricane/Typhoon intensity but will stay out at sea in the middle of the South Indian Ocean.

Official Information and Advisories can be found at

Being an actual manifestation of primordial chaos is not only a pain in the ass, but exhausting sometimes.

By pain in the ass and exhausting I mean human bodies aren't really ideal for containing a high order angel.

It has reached Tropical Storm intensity on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale, but yet to reach Moderate Tropical Storm on the Meteo France Tropical Cyclone Scale which is the naming intensity in the South West Indian Ocean (Moderate Tropical Storm ≈ Category 1 Tropical Cyclone on the Australian TC Scale)

'Ark: Survival Evolved' pro tips:

- When leveling a resource gathering tame focus on Weight and Melee for points and occasionally health. The gather efficiency is calculated from melee plus it helps if you encounter hostile creatures.

- Items that spoil will spoil one at a time for a stack if you want to spoil meat (useful for crafting narcotics) split it up into as many stacks as posible, reducing the number of stacks can also increase the time it takes for all of an item to spoil.

- If you make a raft or motor boat (later game) build a small base on it with a bed (so a mobile spawn point, and fast travel location) that way you can do things out elsewhere on the map and not have to travel back to a main base to do small stuff on location, also make the roof a tame parking lot so you can load your specialise tames onboard including a flyer to quickly fly to shore without bring you craft too close to potential danger.

#Mozambique #Cyclone Wiped Out the Nation’s #Food. Now Aid is in Short Supply.

International donors gave tens of millions to help Mozambique — a far cry from the nearly one billion dollars pledged to rebuild #NotreDame in Paris.
#Idai was the deadliest cyclone to hit #Africa in over a century. Augusto and Amélia lost their home and their son in the flooding. Now, with their crops ruined and the next big harvest a year away, staying alive is a daily struggle.
