Tropical Cyclone Terry-Dance

10 - 14 January 1976


Cyclone Terry began on 10 January as a weak low pressure system in the central Indian Ocean. As it progressed westward it developed steadily. By the time it crossed into the Mauritius Tropical Cyclone Region it was a storm of moderate intensity and was continuing to deepen. On entering the Mauritius Region the cyclone's name was changed to Dance . It moved farther westward and on 21 and 22 January it affected Malagasy.

Terry occurred west of 90°E when the Australian region extended to 80°E.
