Rainfall associated with tropical cyclones is both beneficial and harmful. Although rain contributes to the water needs of the areas traversed by the cyclones, the rain is harmful when the amount is so large it can cause flooding.

Cyclone Sidr formed in the central Bay of Bengal and quickly strengthened to reach sustained winds of 160 mph, making it a category 5 storm.
