Pune lies very close to the seismically active zone around Koyna Dam, about south of the city, and has been rated in Zone 4 (Earthquake hazard zoning of India#Zone 4) (on a scale of 2 to 5, with 5 being the most prone to earthquakes) by the India Meteorological Department

By November 4, the typhoon attained winds of 185 km h (115 mph), equivalent to a Category 3 hurricane (SSHS#Category 3) on the Saffir–Simpson Hurricane Scale, before making landfall (Landfall (meteorology)) in Chumphon Province, Thailand around 0600&nbsp

The '''1992 North Indian Ocean cyclone season''' was the most active year on record in terms of tropical cyclone development, with twelve tropical storms forming throughout the year. The season has no official bounds but cyclones tend to form within this basin between April and December. There are two main seas in the North Indian Ocean — the Bay of Bengal to the east of the Indian subcontinent and the Arabian Sea to the west of India. The official Regional Specialized Meteorological Center in this basin is the India Meteorological Department (IMD), while the Joint Typhoon Warning Center releases unofficial advisories. An average of four to six storms form in the North Indian Ocean every season with peaks in May and November. Cyclones occurring between the meridians 45°E and 100°E are included in the season by the IMD.

, promoted the study of meteorology in India.Henry Piddington published almost 40 papers dealing with tropical storms from Calcutta between 1835 and 1855 in ''The Journal of the Asiatic Society''. He also coined the term ''cyclone'', meaning the coil of a snake. In 1842, he published his landmark thesis, ''Laws of the Storms''.

Responding to a ridge (Ridge (meteorology)) to the north, Gay maintained a west-northwest to northwesterly track for the next four days. Moving through an area of low wind shear and warm waters once again, the storm gradually re-intensified; however, restrictions to the cyclone's outflow limited this. Early

India Meteorological Department

The '''India Meteorological Department''' ('''IMD'''), also referred to as the ''Met Department'', is an agency of the Ministry of Earth Sciences of the Government of India. It is the principal agency responsible for meteorological observations, weather forecasting and seismology. IMD is headquartered in New Delhi and operates hundreds of observation stations across India and Antarctica.

IMD is also one of the six Regional Specialized Meteorological Centers of the World Meteorological Organization. It has the responsibility for forecasting, naming and distribution of warnings for tropical cyclones in the Northern Indian Ocean region, including the Malacca Straits, the Bay of Bengal, the Arabian Sea and the Persian Gulf.
