The –90 Australian region cyclone season was an above average tropical cyclone season. It was also an event in the ongoing cycle of tropical cyclone formation. It ran from 1 November to 30 April The regional tropical cyclone operational plan also defines a tropical cyclone year separately from a tropical cyclone season, and the "tropical cyclone year" ran from 1 July to • Maximum winds: km/h ( mph), (minute sustained).

Characteristics of tropical cyclones in the Australian region have been examined based on 40 seasons of satellite-supported observations. Many parameters of TC behavior have been considered for the Australian region as a whole and for its individual basins. The erratic nature of TCs in the Australian region has been well illustrated by the Cited by: Overall three people were killed and damage totaled $8 million. George was one of the most intense cyclones on record to strike the Pilbara region.

The Australian Tropical Cyclone Database Details of all tropical cyclones that are known to have occurred are contained in a database maintained by the Bureau of Meteorology. After a tropical cyclone has occurred, tropical cyclone meteorologists reanalyse the cyclone and compile what is known as the 'best track' and a report. Because of its location close to a region of tropical cyclone formation, the city ofCairns is regularly affected by tropical cyclones. Most cyclones occur in the monthsJanuary–March, although some have affected Cairns in December and April. There is a strong year-to-year variation in tropical cyclone numbers in the Cairns region, with twice as many impacts occurring during La Niña Cited by: 4.

The tropical cyclones produce heavy clouds, rough seas and very heavy rainfall. A well-developed hurricane is a hazard to ships in its proximity as well as to the coastal area where it strikes. The storm piles up a huge sheet of sea water in its forward sector which can inundate low lying coastal areas causing large scale death and by: 1.
