One has always wondered how these cyclones got their names and who selected them. The India Meteorological Department (IMD) says the practice of naming storms (tropical cyclones) was adopted years ago to help identify them so that people could be informed about their arrival quickly.

This decision, to give names to the cyclones that form over the North Indian Ocean region, was taken unanimously by eight countries Bangladesh, India, Maldives, Myanmar, Oman, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Thailand in the year 2000.

Actually this cyclone's name is "phet"........The WMO's Regional Specialized Meteorological Centre (RSMC) has assigned name "Phet" to the tropical cyclone formed in Arabian Sea. Phet is a Thai word pronounced as Pet, meaning "Diamond"
