Place your bets, will it be a busy season or a quiet season?

Cyclone Tauktae makes landfall in Covid-battered India -bbc
Late on Monday local time, India's meteorological department announced that the "extremely severe cyclonic storm" had begun to make landfall in Gujarat. The process is expected to take several hours. Winds were gusting up to 185km/h, the weather bureau added, and storm surges up to 4m (13ft) high were possible in some coastal districts. Tauktae is expected to be the strongest cyclone to strike the region since 1998 and both Gujarat and its neighbouring state, Maharashtra, are on high alert.

No “bets” for us, it is far to real a threat. We are gonna stay stateside for the season the see what October/November brings.

We have been through a couple of hurricanes here and while not pleasant they are survivable. We have seen what hurricanes do in the islands, no guarantee if survival for our boat unless hauled and strapped down well. Even then the guy next to hou may loose his rig and smash yours.

Cyclone Yaas: Severe storm lashes India and Bangladesh -bbc
Cyclone Yaas, which intensified into a "very severe cyclonic storm", hit the states of West Bengal and Orissa - also known as Odisha - on Wednesday, as well as lashing southern Bangladesh. This is the second cyclone to hit the country in a week, after Cyclone Tauktae killed more than 150 people. It comes as India is already struggling to deal with its Covid-19 outbreak. Yaas lashed coastal areas with ferocious wind and rain as it made landfall in India, damaging homes and bringing waves that swamped towns. More than one million people were evacuated in the country as the storm approached. In its latest update, the India Meteorological Department tweeted that the cyclone had sustained winds of 70-80km/h (43-50mph) and with gusts of up to 90km/h.
