Cyclone Warning Signals List

Cyclone Warning Signals List: These signals are known as the Beaufort Scale, which was introduced during the British rule. It was first determined by a British naval officer, Francis Beaufort, in 1805 on the basis of wind speed. At present, 12 such signals have been sent to the coast and ports of Gujarat. Saurashtra currently has two signals, which could be amplified depending on the next situation.

Cyclone Warning Signals List

The Beaufort scale was extended in 1946 when forces 13 to 17 were added. However, forces 13 to 17 were intended to apply only to special cases, such as tropical cyclones. Nowadays, the extended scale is only used in Taiwan and mainland China, which are often affected by typhoons. Internationally, WMO Manual on Marine Meteorological Services (2012 edition) defined the Beaufort Scale only up to force 12 and there was no recommendation on the use of the extended scale.
