Tropical Cyclone Seroja passed close to the coast of Timor-Leste on 4 April 2021, and the slow-moving storm brought heavy rain that caused floods and landslides.

27 people were killed in the landslides and floods, and approximately 10,000 people were affected, with at least 8 still missing. Most of the damage occurred in Dili municipality, in which the capital city of Dili is located. Dili hosts the highest population in the country and the city experienced extensive flooding, which the Prime Minister described as one of the most devastating incidents the nation has experienced in the past 40 years.

The flood waters swept many homes away and caused damage to roads, making travel within the city difficult.

The storm also caused a loss of power throughout the country and damaged the nation's pharmacy containing storage of their COVID-19 vaccines.
