I was quite surprised to see two including Zelia as the 2nd both track fairly similar paths down the east coast and near Norfolk Island. Got to be unusual having two following that close.

What was the go with two TCs being named at a similar time both starting with the letter V ?   I thought there was supposed to be a consistent set of names for the southern hemisphere by now.
