Severe Tropical Cyclone Seroja is a tropical cyclone that has had devastating impacts in portions of southern Indonesia, East Timor, and Western Australia's Mid West region. The twenty-second tropical low, seventh tropical cyclone, and third severe tropical cyclone of the 2020–21 Australian region cyclone season, the precursor of Seroja formed off the south coast of Timor island as Tropical Low 22U at 18:00 UTC on 3 April 2021. The tropical low moved very slowly near the island, while the system's thunderstorms increased in organization. The low intensified into Tropical Cyclone Seroja by 4 April, while it was passing north of Rote Island, while continuing its slow strengthening trend. The name Seroja means lotus in Indonesian.
