Tropical Cyclones Amara and Bruce in the Indian Ocean

Extract from link
The first and second cyclones of the Indian Ocean Cyclone Season are pictured here in an image consisting of two passes of the Suomi NPP satellite’s VIIRS instrument. The eastern pass was taken around 0730Z and the western pass around 0910Z on December 18, 2013. Both storms are in the southern hemisphere as shown by their clockwise rotations. Amara could bring high winds and heavy surf to Rodriguez in a few days, while Bruce is affecting conditions in the Cocos Islands, west of Jakarta, Indonesia now.
