Facts for Prelims
 

Tropical Cyclone Freddy
 

News: The World Meteorological Organization is setting up an expert committee to evaluate whether tropical cyclone Freddy has broken the record as the longest-lasting tropical cyclone on record.
 

Background:
 It has been a named tropical cyclone for 33 days, crossed the entire South Indian Ocean and travelled more than 8,000 kilometers.
 The accumulated cyclone energy (index used to measure the energy) is the equivalent of an average full North Atlantic hurricane season. 

Impact
 Mozambique has received more than a year's worth of rainfall in the past month, and Madagascar got three times the monthly average in the space of a week.
 Freddy tracked across the entire Indian Ocean from east to west, affecting Mauritius and La Réunion on its long journey en route to Madagascar. This kind of super zonal track is very rare.
 According to NASA, Freddy has set the record for having the highest accumulated cyclone energy (ACE) of any southern hemisphere storm in history. ACE is an index used to measure the total amount of wind energy associated with a tropical cyclone over its lifetime.
