Tropical Cyclone Cecily

11 - 19 December 1973


Cyclone Cecily , the fourth of the season, formed south of Sumatra as a tropical low, drifted southsouthwestward to near Cocos Island where it began to intensity to cyclone status. It continued to move southwestward until 16 December when it recurved to a more southerly trajectory. By 18 December the cyclone had dissipated although cloud remnants were present until 20 December. At no stage did Cecily have any recorded serious effect on person or property, nor was there much information regarding the system other than from satellite photographs.
