The World's and Indian Dams, Worldwide Earthquakes and The Myanmar Cyclone of 3rd May 2008
Looking at the Google Earth Nargis Cyclone Path follow up at their fabulous Google map site, a plausible explanation for the Nargis cyclone pointing to the epicenter(31,103) of the 7.9 MM major earthquake at Wenchuan, East Sichuan China is that in the Bay of Bengal in particular and elsewhere in general, earthquakes and conditions for causing cyclones interact, producing a very destructive consequence of dams on the Indian subcontinent.
That the 2004 Dec 26 great earthquake of 9.3 MM magnitude did not cause a cyclone but tsunamis and seiches, but the present set of major earthquakes resulted in a positive feedback of earthquakes and cyclone is perhaps because of the very different attributes of the two sets of earthquakes: one in 2004-05 and the other in 2008:
The data for the Cyclone 03A-98 is in the following Table PHBTO3AP and is shown graphically in the India Satellite Imagery below.
The Sichuan Quake, the Nargis and Fung Wong 08 cyclones:
The following tells the mean story:
The 2007 storm tracks are shown below and we see that the tracks agree with the mean direction .
