TC Elaine was named on the 17th of March 1999, became a severe Category 3 cyclone, and weakened again before crossing the coast as a rain depression on the 20th, dumping record rains in part of Western Australia, and causing the worst floods in recorded history in the town of Moora, about 130km north of Perth.

It is presented with TC Vance, as the 2 cyclones were co-existing in the same region. For a more detailed account of the passage of these 2 cyclones, click here.
