East Coast of India is vulnerable for tropical cyclone hazards which form over Bay of Bengal (BoB). The average annual frequency of tropical cyclones over the BoB and Arabian Sea (AS) is about five (about 5-6% of the global annual average) and about 80 cyclones form around the globe in a year. The frequency is more in the BoB than in the Arabian Sea, the ratio being 4:1. The monthly frequency of tropical cyclones in the north Indian Ocean display a bi-modal characteristic with a primary peak in November and secondary peak in May.
