On July 26, the JMA reported that a tropical depression had developed within an area of strong vertical windshear in the monsoon trough about 1,000 kilometres (620 mi) to the southeast of Manila in the Philippines. Asia. The typhoon killed … On November 1, Super Typhoon Goni struck the Philippines with sustained winds of 140 mph and gusts as high as 195 mph. The scope of this article is limited to the Pacific Ocean, to the north of the equator between 100°E and the 180th meridian. Later, the PAGASA assigned the local name Carina on the system as it briefly entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility. , On September 27, a large tropical disturbance formed near Chuuk. During the season 25 tropical storms developed in the Western Pacific and each one was named by the JMA, when the system was judged to have 10-minute sustained windspeeds of 65 km/h (40 mph). However, the effects of these rains were limited and only one fatality took place.  Late on the same day, the JTWC upgraded Doksuri to a tropical storm.  Total damage were finalized at ₫1.12 trillion (US$53.9 million).  Early on August 4, the JTWC upgraded Haikui to a tropical storm. The season's first named storm, Pakhar, developed on March 28 while the last named storm, Wukong, dissipated on December 29. Later that day, the JTWC upgraded Saola to a tropical storm. The JTWC originally anticipated the storm to strengthen into a category 1 typhoon, however on October 4, moderate vertical wind shear coming from the east blown the system's convection away, its low level circulation center became totally exposed. We should always be mindful of severe weather conditions, like typhoons or tropical storms (called cyclones and hurricanes somewhere else in the planet). , Although Pakhar did not affect the Philippines as a tropical cyclone, its precursor produced heavy rains across part of the nation. Taiwanese Army soldiers rescued more than 1,000 people from remote mountainous villages in the north and east.  Late on the same day, the JTWC upgraded Damrey to a tropical depression, and even upgraded it to a tropical storm on the next day. Within the North-western Pacific Ocean, both the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) and the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration assign names to tropical cyclones that develop in the Western Pacific, which can result in a tropical cyclone having two names. Because of land interaction and colder sea surface temperatures, the JTWC downgraded Pakhar to a severe tropical storm, early on March 31. The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) already named the typhoons that will hit in the Philippines in 2012.  Additionally, 6,700 homes were destroyed. Thousands of typhoon-toppled banana trees on a plantation in New Bataan, Compostela Valley province, on December 7, 2012. , Heavy rains associated with the outer bands of the system triggered widespread flooding and several landslides in the western Philippines. Late on June 8, the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) issued a Tropical Cyclone Formation Alert on that system but canceled it late on June 9. Although no medals were won by the 9 athletes, Josephine Medina's performance in table tennis was the best finish for the Philippines, having ranked 4th overall in Paralympic Table Tennis standings. Later that day, the JMA upgraded Talim to a severe tropical storm, but the JMA downgraded it to a tropical storm early on June 20 as the LLCC fully exposed.  On August 3, the JMA downgraded Saola to a tropical depression, after the JTWC issued a final warning on the system. At 12Z on August 7, the JMA upgraded Haikui to a typhoon, but the JTWC downgraded it to a tropical storm simultaneously.  On July 20, the JTWC issued a TCFA on the system; soon, the PAGASA upgraded it to a tropical depression and named it Ferdie. Philippines… On September 17, at 01:00 (UTC) Sanba made landfall over Korea.  Within its July forecast update TSR increased its forecast and now predicted that the basin would see activity about 10% above the 1965–2011 average with 26.8 tropical storms, 16.7 typhoons, 9.2 "intense" typhoons and an ACE index of about 324 units. Later on the same day, the JTWC upgraded Khanun to a tropical storm; also, the PAGASA named it Enteng as the system briefly passed the corner of the Philippine Area of Responsibility.  On October 22, the PAGASA started to monitor the tropical depression and named it Ofel.

This table lists all the storms that developed in the western Pacific Ocean to the west of the International Date Line during the 2012 season. On September 27, with the system far from Jelawat's outflow, the exposed low level circulation center was wrapped with convection, and the JMA upgraded the system to a Severe tropical Storm. 12 hours later, it weakened to a category 3 typhoon and category 2 on the next day due to cool sea surface temperatures, then to a category 1 typhoon.  However the only damage reported was on Guam where falling tree limbs caused an estimated $20,000 of damage to power lines.  Over the next few days the JMA continued to monitor the depression, before it was last noted by the JMA during April 11 about 450 km (280 mi) to the northwest of Wake Island. The town of Nachikatsuura, some 400 kilometres southwest of Tokyo, ordered nearly 1,600 residents to evacuate, warning of the danger of landslides brought on by heavy rain, media reports said. , On October 5, the JMA started to monitor a tropical depression that had developed about 115 km (70 mi) to the northeast of Hagåtña, Guam. In Mindanao where the typhoon made its landfall, thousands of families were left homeless and more than 170,000 moved to evacuation centers.  On September 30, it made landfall on Japan, then on October 1 the system became an extratropical cyclone. Tropical depressions that are monitored by the United States' Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) are given a numerical designation with a "W" suffix.  On April 8, the JMA started to monitor a tropical depression, that had developed about 2,000 km (1,245 mi) to the northeast of Tarawa island in Kiribati. On March 24, the JMA upgraded the system to a tropical depression, but downgraded it back to a tropical disturbance, on March 25, due to the collapsing outer rainbands, and the exposed low-level circulation center.  The most significant effects stemmed from heavy rains, amounting to 551.5 mm (21.71 in), that caused flash flooding and landslides.  When Damrey drifted towards Yellow Sea on August 2, the JMA upgraded it to a typhoon. In 2001, PAGASA revised its naming scheme to contain longer annual lists with a more mixed set of names.  On July 28, the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) issued a Tropical Cyclone Formation Alert on the system, before the JMA upgraded it to a tropical storm and named it Damrey. Saola is the name of a rare mammal found in Vietnam. Over the next few days, Tembin made a counterclockwise loop westward, moving back into the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) in the process, causing more rainfall over in the Philippines.  Over the next couple of days, as the depression moved towards the northwest, the system transitioned into a subtropical cyclone, before it was last noted by the JMA during September 13..  Between three and five of the systems were predicted to affect Taiwan compared to an average of around 3.6. It said the storm caused significant damage, destroying 650 dwelling houses, 30 public buildings, railways, roads, bridges, and various systems. The JTWC downgraded Sanvu to a tropical storm late on May 26, followed by the JMA early on May 27, as the system's low level circulation centre started to become exposed.  The depression subsequently was last noted during the next day by both the JTWC and the JMA, dissipating about 190 km (120 mi) to the south of Vietnam. English Situation Report on Philippines about Protection and Human Rights, Flash Flood, Flood and more; published on 06 Jan 2012 by Govt. On July 29, domestic and international flights throughout the country were delayed and cancelled. However, six hours later the JTWC issued its final advisory as vertical windshear had started to increase, and after it had found no deep convection near the systems l… , In all, 54 fatalities were confirmed in the Philippines, with three others went missing and 35 people were injured.  During that day the depression moved westwards, before the Joint Typhoon Warning Center initiated advisories at 1500 UTC and designated the system as Tropical Depression 01W. , On March 28, the JTWC issued a TCFA on the tropical depression, as its LLCC began to consolidate more. , Mawar brought torrential rain to parts of the Philippines including the Bicol Region while enhancing the southwest monsoon which triggered delays and cancelled of air flights. 9 regarding Tropical Depression Ambo", "Final Report re Effects of Southwest Monsoon and Typhoon "Butchoy" (Guchol)", ESCAP/WMO Typhoon

On October 9, the JTWC, and the JMA upgraded the system to a typhoon.  During the next day, the JMA reported that the system had weakened into a tropical depression, before the JTWC issued their final warning on Wukong as a north-easterly cold surge along the coast of south-east Asia had caused the depression to become fully exposed. During each season, several national meteorological services and scientific agencies forecast how many tropical cyclones, tropical storms, and typhoons will form during a season and/or how many tropical cyclones will affect a particular country.  Early on October 20, the JMA reported that Maria had dissipated. As we start with 2012, we again note that the state of the weather affects our travels, vacations and pretty much everything that we do. Typhoon Bolaven, known in the Philippines as Typhoon Julian, was regarded as the most powerful storm to strike the Korean Peninsula in nearly a decade, with wind gusts measured up to 186 km/h (116 mph). , In late June after six typhoons had formed Taiwan's Central Weather Bureau predicted that the season, would be near or below its average of 25.7 with 23 – 26 tropical storms occurring over the basin during 2012.
