Megi sped across northern Honshū before completing its transition into a nontropical low off the east coast of Hokkaidō. Following Talas, local governments quickly repaired damages wrought by the storm, costing $300,000. It tracked to the west, organizing slowly due to persistent vertical wind shear. [9] By August 30, the system had intensified into a minimal typhoon. Despite this, most tropical cyclones tend to form in the northwestern Pacific Ocean between May and November. [9] Losses from the storm reached $9 billion, ranking it as the costliest storm to ever strike the country and one of the most destructive in the western Pacific. [35] Three fishermen went missing offshore the coastline due to high surf. Following landfall Kujira transitioned into an extratropical cyclone and continued to persist before these extratropical remnants crossed the International Dateline towards the end of April 2003. The depression quickly strengthened, reaching tropical storm intensity on May 14 and typhoon status just six hours later. Forty-one people were killed by the storm, mainly in Kyūshū. The 2017 Pacific typhoon season was a below-average season in terms of Accumulated Cyclone Energy and the number of typhoons and super typhoons, and the first since the 1977 season to not produce a Category 5-equivalent typhoon on the Saffir-Simpson scale.The season produced a total of 27 named storms, 11 typhoons, and only two super typhoons, making it an average season in terms of … Late on the 18th, Muifa's intensity peaked at 115 kn/130 mph still to the east of the Philippines. The season ran throughout 2014, though most tropical cyclones typically develop between May and October. By October 21, the cyclone weakened into a tropical storm 130 nmi west of Tokyo, and later that day, the system completed the transition to a nontropical low. These conditions produce an anomalous upper-level, ridge-trough pattern in the subtropics, with an amplified ridge over the subtropical Pacific in the ar… Damage and deaths include totals while the storm was extratropical, a wave, or a low, and all the damage figures are in 2004 USD. Welcome to the group, and keep updated about Weather News reports indicated that five people were reported dead or missing after Typhoon Megi in South Korea. Haima is the Chinese word for the sea horse. The season ran throughout 2006, though most tropical cyclones typically develop between May and October. The system remained a tropical storm until the 8th when Sarika weakened back into a depression. Impact throughout the season was minimal and no deaths were recorded. This timeline documents tropical cyclone formations, strengthening, weakening, landfalls, extratropical transitions, as well as dissipations. Tingting is a pet name for young girls in Chinese. A slow northward drift began later that day and vertical wind shear associated with the subtropical jet stream began to take its toll on Meari. This timeline documents all of the events of the 2011 Pacific typhoon season, the period that tropical cyclones formed in the Western Pacific Ocean in 2011. The season's first named storm, Kujira, developed on May 3 while the season's last named storm, Nida, dissipated on December 3. Tropical Depression Winnie was a large system which brought torrential rains to Luzon, resulting in deadly flashfloods and landslides. The maximum winds estimated by any agency were 30 kn/35 mph. Three tornadoes were spawned in Japan, with two touching down in Okinawa Prefecture and one in Aichi Prefecture. Tokage was regarded as the deadliest storm to strike Japan since Typhoon Bess in 1982. [9] Rananim reached its peak intensity on August 11 with winds of 150 km/h (90 mph); [10] the JTWC estimated the system to be slightly stronger, peaking with winds of 165 km/h (105 mph). Activity throughout the year fell slightly below the long-term average, with 12 named storms, 6 hurricanes, and 3 major hurricanes. No damage or casualties are known to have resulted from short-lived tropical cyclone. The highest 24‑hour rainfall amount from the Philippines was 246.4 mm at Catanduanes between midday the 15th and 16th. The season ran throughout 2002, though most tropical cyclones typically develop between May and October. Chaba formed on August 18 in the open Western Pacific. The resultant ocean cyclone moved rapidly eastward, reaching a point near 42N/174E late on the August 22. The highest rainfall report from this system was 157.8 mm from Cabanatuan between midday November 29 and 30. In addition, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) assigns names to tropical cyclones that enter or form in the Philippine area of responsibility. Megi moved northwest through the Ryūkyū islands before recurving northeastward towards South Korea and Japan. Ma-on started to accelerate northeastward and its eye began to shrink in diameter and became more ragged. Sudal is a Korean word meaning otter. An ill-defined tropical wave crossed Central America on May 17 and interacted with the trough, eventually leading to the formation of a tropical depression at 00:00 UTC on May 22. During the season, tropical cyclones affected the Philippines, Japan, China, the Korean Peninsula, Indochina, and various islands in the western Pacific. These names, however, are not in common use outside of the Philippines. In Japan, the highest rainfall amount was spotted at Tanegashima which recorded 133.5 mm between midday October 26 and 27. The near-equatorial trough spawned a tropical disturbance east of the Philippines late on March 13. Accelerating towards the northeast, the system quickly weakened to a tropical storm by the evening on September 7 before transitioning into an extratropical cyclone shortly thereafter. The National Hurricane Center's Tropical Cyclone Reports contain comprehensive information on each tropical cyclone, including synoptic history, meteorological statistics, casualties and damages, and the post-analysis best track (six-hourly positions and intensities). A total of 95 deaths were attributed to high winds, flooding and mudslides caused by Tokage, with an additional three people reported missing. By the 5th, a typhoon warning was issued for the island of Agrihan. Tokage made landfall over Tosa-Shimizu, near the southern tip of Shikoku, Japan still at typhoon strength. Between December 10 and 11, Talas produced light rainfall, peaked at 8.4 mm (0.33 in) in Kwajalein with winds reaching 74 km/h (46 mph) and gusting to 103 km/h (64 mph). It was an above-average season with 31 named storms, 13 typhoons, and five super typhoons. It slowed as it turned northward late on the 7th. The heaviest rainfall in the Philippines from this cyclone was 185.2 mm at Casiguran between midday the 22nd and 23rd. The most severe damage was on Kwajalein; the newly constructed sandblast shelter was completely destroyed, metal doors at the local high school were blown off and the roof of the school was damaged, several metal buildings throughout the island sustained wind damage. Steered northwest to west-northwest by a mid-level ridge to its north and a broad cyclonic circulation to its southwest, the depression intensified into Tropical Storm Lester at 18:00 UTC the next day. [7], A westward-moving tropical wave from Africa crossed Central America into the eastern Pacific in late June, coalescing into a tropical depression at 12:00 UTC on July 2 well southwest of the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula. In Japan, rainfall and winds were relatively light. The 2019 Pacific typhoon season was the costliest Pacific typhoon season on record, just ahead of the previous year.The season was fairly above-average, producing 29 named storms, 17 typhoons, and five super typhoons. The 2006 Pacific typhoon season was a below-average season that produced a total of 23 named storms, 15 typhoons, and six super typhoons. After passing Kwajelein, the center of Talas brushed Ebeye, producing gale-force winds on the island. The scope of this article is limited to the Pacific Ocean, north of the equator between 100°E and the International Date Line. After becoming a tropical storm on December 18 Noru moved to the northwest, where it peaked with 55 kn/65 mph winds. The post-tropical cyclone turned west-southwest before dissipating about 1,095 mi (1,760 km) east of Hilo, Hawaii early on August 28. By the 29th, Meari was beginning its approach to the Japanese island of Kyūshū. Recurvature back to the north-northeast towards Japan ensued while the typhoon slowly weakened. The extratropical remains of Tokage moved rapidly northeastward, crossing the International Date Line around midday on October 23. Wind gusts were recorded up to a local record of 211 km/h (131 mph). The disturbance that was to become Typhoon Muifa was noted early on November 14 when located 215 nmi north of Palau. According to news reports in the Philippines, 1,404 people were killed or left missing [23] during the passage of Tropical Depression Winnie, primarily due to massive flashfloods and landslides in Quezon and Aurora provinces triggered by the attendant heavy rains. Cooler waters, strong southwesterly shear, and an eyewall replacement cycle all weakened Javier thereafter; it fell to tropical depression intensity early on September 19 before crossing Baja California and degenerated into a remnant low at 18:00 UTC that day over the Gulf of California. [41], As the cyclone paralleled the coastline of Mexico, a tropical storm warning was hoisted from Punta Maldonado to Lázaro Cárdenas. In the same year, the Pacific hurricane season broke the same record being the least active season on record. In addition, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) assigns names to tropical cyclones that enter or form in the Philippine area of responsibility. The depression intensified into Tropical Storm Howard twelve hours later and further developed into a hurricane at 06:00 UTC on September 1. From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The 2004 Pacific hurricane season officially started May 15, 2004 in the eastern Pacific, and June 1, 2004 in the central Pacific, and lasted until November 30, 2004. Talas moved to the west, peaking at 45 kn/50 mph before weakening due to lack of outflow. This can often result in the same storm having two names. The 1992 Pacific typhoon season had no official bounds; it ran year-round in 1992. Deaths in parentheses are additional and indirect (an example of an indirect death would be a traffic accident), but were still related to that storm. [4], The season's first storm, Agatha, developed on May 22. Nida weakened slightly over the islands, and began to move to the north and northeast in response to a break in the subtropical ridge. Unused names are marked in gray. The system assumed a more west-northwesterly track, becoming a tropical storm by late on October 16, and was named Nock-ten. On October 18, Typhoon Tokage was 290 miles south of Kadena Air Base, Okinawa. The weakening system dissipated on the 31st when the weak low was located approximately 1,210 km (750 mi) west of Saipan. It accelerated to the northeast, and became extratropical on August 31. The 2005 Pacific typhoon season was the least active typhoon season since 2000, producing 23 named storms, of which 13 became typhoons. Mindulle caused 56 deaths, with $833 million in damage in its path (2004 USD). Hoi An, which is the town of world heritage, was hit by the flood, and more than 80 old houses were in danger of collapse. On October 12, an area of convection existed 480 miles east-southeast of Guam. [42], The depression produced locally heavy rainfall across western Mexico, resulting in some localized flooding. The season ran throughout 2007, though most tropical cyclones typically develop between May and November. Due to warm waters and moderate convection, it rapidly intensified, with a brief turn to the southwest. After attaining its peak as the season's first major hurricane with winds of 120 mph (195 km/h), increasing wind shear and cooler sea surface temperatures begin to weaken the cyclone. [37] Accumulations peaked at 7 in (178 mm) in Walnut Creek, Arizona, with lighter totals across the Four Corners and upper Midwest. On its northwest track, a favorable environment regime prompted the cyclone to begin a period of rapid intensification, and it attained its peak as a Category 4 hurricane with winds of 140 mph (220 km/h) at 12:00 UTC on September 2. On the 16th, the tropical cyclone started drifting north-northeast. Reports indicate that at least 18 people died with several more reported missing as a result of Typhoon Meari. Tracking west-northwestward, the depression intensified into a tropical storm over the central Philippines before entering the South China Sea. [22]. After days of sputtering across the western Pacific, Tropical Depression 26W formed on October 4, and quickly became named Tropical Storm Ma-on. Near-typhoon conditions occurred on both Agrihan and Pagan while tropical storm-force winds were experienced on Alamagan. [15], A vigorous tropical wave entered the East Pacific on July 13, acquiring sufficient organization to be declared a tropical depression at 00:00 UTC on July 19 while located about 620 mi (1,000 km) south-southwest of the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula.
