False Gonu II rumours again - Don't Panic

Just in case you hear more rumours blowing around about another Gonu II risk yet again...

Yes, there is a 'tropical disturbance', a long way south of Salalah at present, not currently rated as being very likely to turn worse.

here's the latest image from the American Navy JTWC

The tropical disturbance is the white spinny thing marked 'poor'.

There IS a tropical cyclone in the Indian Ocean, but in the southern Indian Ocean. That's the thing marked 'TC01S'.

Nothing to worry about at all just yet folks.

  1. I just don't understand why people keep believing/spreading these rumours...honestly, please, in this age of TV and the internet, how hard can it be to actually verify a bit of information?

    Come on my fellow citizens, let's spend a little bit of effort, altogether now, you can do it, yes, that's it....Wait, what? No? Spending a little bit of mental effort to verify absurd rumours is too difficult? Very well then, carry on. Sigh.
