Event type: Storm (Tropical cyclone, hurricane, typhoon)
On the 8th of December, a tropical cyclone threading its way into the Mozambique Channel has intensified into a major storm with winds of 185 kilometers per hour as it heads toward a possible landfall in northern Madagascar. Cyclone Belna still has time to grow stronger, according to Météo France Reunion, the regional authority for cyclones in the southwest Indian Ocean. While the storm’s power is likely to intensify, there’s less confident about the forecast track, according to the French agency as well as the Joint Typhoon Warning Center.
