Weather of Arabia - the famous tropical cyclone "Freddy" is a hurricane that has always been mentioned by many official bodies from the moment it was born in the region located in the eastern Indian Ocean until this day when the same hurricane hits Mozambique, and the tropical cyclone in its long life period caused many damages to lives and property, especially In Madagascar and Mozambique as a result of heavy rains and floods.

Freddy was classified as a tropical cyclone more than 33 days ago and has crossed the entire southern Indian Ocean, traveling more than 10,000 km, according to Claire Nullis, a spokeswoman for the World Meteorological Organization.

Tropical cyclone Freddy is the longest-running tropical cyclone in the history of recent climate records.

Hurricane John, which lasted 31 days in 1994, is the current title holder.

At a news conference in Geneva, Ms. Knowles said the storm generated as much cyclic energy - an indicator used to measure the amount of wind energy - as the entire North Atlantic hurricane season.

The scientific reason behind the longevity of Tropical Cyclone Freddie is due to the nature of the distribution of air systems in the southern hemisphere, where the tropical system was far from the strong air heights that restricted its movement, which made the hurricane loose in its path.

Scientifically, the reason for the formation of hurricanes in the southern Indian Ocean region is due to entering these areas in the summer, as the temperature of the waters of the southern Indian Ocean rose to about 28 degrees Celsius, which is a very favorable temperature for the formation of huge cumulus clouds that begin to develop and grow and absorb potential energy from the surface temperature. warm waters, which makes it gradually develop into a tropical air system, the atmospheric pressure decreases in its center, and clouds begin to circulate around the center of low air pressure, announcing the growth of a hurricane when the wind speed reaches more than 120 km / h, and the classification of the hurricane increases according to the average wind speed according to the Saffir-Simpson scale to measure the intensity of hurricanes .

God knows.
