Australian tropical cyclones, March 2015, satellite image. North is at top. The three cyclones shown here are (left to right): Olwyn, Nathan, and Pam. Severe Tropical Cyclone Olwyn made landfall near Carnarvon, Western Australia, on 13 March 2015. Tropical Cyclone Nathan formed on 9 March 2015 from Severe Tropical Cyclone Pam. Severe Tropical Cyclone Pam, much stronger than the other two storms, made landfall in Vanuatu on 13 March 2015, causing huge destruction and an unconfirmed number of deaths.
