Cyclones in Mayotte

Cyclones only occur occasionally in Mayotte. On average, they happen about 3 times a year.

The typical cyclone season depends on the summer monsoon. In the months before (May to June) and after (October to November), the most severe storms occur.

Mayotte has certainly been affected by the foothills of several cyclones, but during the past 12 months no cyclone reached the inhabited areas on land.
