On Saipan and nearby Tinian, high winds from Yutu knocked down more than 200 power poles. Samuel began to restrengthen over the South China Sea, and was subsequently named "Usagi". As of 30 October 2018 (11:00 a.m.), PAGASA rais… 2. See more current weather Weather Data Notice: We have recorded very few readings for this month, some days may be missing. After reaching typhoon status on November 21, Man-yi entered the Philippine basin and received the name Tomas from PAGASA. A 3.29 metre storm surge led to flooding along the Osaka Bay, including Kansai International Airport, where the runways were flooded and some airport facilities were damaged by wind and water. Thereafter, Shanshan began to change its course towards the east as it rapidly weakened. 31st MEU HAST inserts, prepares to support local and federal agencies in Guam and the CNMI following Typhoon Mangkhut. [170] As Tropical Depression 30W continued strengthening, the system became a tropical storm and was named Kong-rey by the JMA. [165] However, Tropical Depression 29W remained a weak system, and developed an exposed low-level circulation center later that day. [10] The JMA, however, assessed that Maria continued to strengthen to reach an initial peak intensity at 12:00 UTC with winds of 195 km/h (120 mph) and a central pressure of 925 hPa (mbar; 27.32 inHg). A low-pressure area east of Mariana Islands was upgraded to a tropical depression by the JMA late on May 10,[27] shortly before the JTWC issued a TCFA. The system began to strengthen, becoming a tropical storm several hours later, and the JMA named the system Yutu. [10] Both the JMA and the JTWC followed suit, with the latter designating the system as 01W. [20] On March 25, the system intensified into a tropical storm and was named Jelawat by the JMA, and at the sane time it entered PAGASA‘s Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) and was named Caloy. Guam is located in what some call "Typhoon Alley." [43], Typhoon Maria at peak intensity on July 9. Damage to infrastructure was limited, reaching JP¥6.75 million (US$60,800) in Kumejima. [24] Explosive intensification then ensued over the following 36 hours as the eye became sharply defined, and Jelawat attained its peak intensity later that morning, with estimated 10-minute sustained winds of 195 km/h (120 mph) and a central pressure of 915 hPa (27.02 inHg). [207] The names of significant tropical cyclones are retired, by both PAGASA and the Typhoon Committee. Shortly afterwards, Sanba entered the Philippine area of responsibility and received the name Basyang by PAGASA. Rosita and Usman were only used for the first and last time. [208] Should the list of names for the Philippine region be exhausted then names will be taken from an auxiliary list of which the first ten are published each season. Still, its remnants still headed out to mainland Russia. This table summarizes all the systems that developed within or moved into the North Pacific Ocean, to the west of the International Date Line during 2018. Simultaneously, a cold front formed southwest of the typhoon, initiating the beginning of an extratropical transition on September 4. The typhoon reached its first peak intensity on July 6; subsequently… 6 hours later, Florita became a tropical storm, with JMA assigning Prapiroon for the international name. [4][1], Maria damaged a number of KC-135 aircraft in Andersen Air Force Base when passing near Guam as a tropical storm on July 5. [97] After the slow consolidation for several days, the system was upgraded to a tropical storm near Okinotorishima at around 18:00 on July 24 by agencies such as JMA and JTWC, with an international name Jongdari. On its route to Okinawa, Japan, Trami slowed down considerably and was almost stationary before moving north-northeastward. The names were taken from a list of names, that had been last used during 2014 and are scheduled to be used again during 2022. Temperatures are very stable, and are around 30/32 °C (86/90 °F) during the day and 24/25 °C (75/77 °F) at night, all year round. [126] The JMA around the same time did the same, naming it Yagi. Typhoon Cimaron intensified to reach its peak intensity at Category 4 severe typhoon with 130 mph winds before its landfall in Japan on August 23 over the southern part of Tokushima Prefecture, Japan at around 21:00 JST (12:00 UTC). Strong winds caused 59,485 households to lose power, though the situation was mostly resolved by July 11. Tropical Depression Josie (13W) missed kilometers off of landfall in Saud, Ilocos Norte. [43] After Gaemi became extratropical, a tropical depression formed south of Hong Kong early on June 17, and dissipated over the east coast of Guangdong, China one day later. [93] Wukong's extratropical remnants was tracked until late on July 27 when it was last noticed off the eastern coast of Russia Far East. While Guam has experienced typhoons in every month of the year, we're most in danger of getting hit by powerful storms during rainy season. On August 9, a tropical depression formed within the South China Sea. A month later, Tropical Storm Sanba developed and affected the southern Philippines. Tropical Depression 18W (2009) A.

Cimaron was a significant Category 4 storm, and the 12th typhoon to strike Japan in 2018 and was surpassed by Typhoon Jebi a month later. [39] The JMA, however, tracked the system until early on June 9, when Ewiniar had weakened into a tropical depression and degenerated into a remnant low. [109] At around 10:30 CST (02:30 UTC) on August 3, Jongdari made landfall over Jinshan District, Shanghai as a tropical storm. By July 11, at least 226,600 people were evacuated in Fujian,[34] while in Zhejiang, about 390,000 people were moved to safety, including 270,000 people from Wenzhou. The 2018 Pacific typhoon season was at the time, the costliest Pacific typhoon season on record, until the record was beaten by the following year. During the year, 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. [190], While passing over the Philippines, Usman brought heavy rains that caused several landslides, which killed 156 people, with damages amounting to Php5.41 billion (US$103 million). [41], A low-pressure area northwest of Palau developed into a tropical depression late on June 3. Super Typhoon Yutu leaves "a lot of damage and destruction" in U.S. Northern Mariana Islands October 25, 2018 / 5:04 AM / AP Typhoon slams Northern Mariana Islands [21] An islandwide power outage occurred on July 5 after gusty winds downed power lines, and the local weather radar was knocked out. 13 re Preparedness Measures and Effects of Tropical Depression "AGATON, "Tropical Storm Basyang makes landfall in Surigao del Sur", "Philippines: Tropical Storm Sanba makes landfall February 13 /update 1", "SitRep No. Hope this helps. [9] The system moved generally westward and on the first day of 2018, the PAGASA began issuing advisories on the system and locally named it Agaton. [107][108] The storm weakened rapidly inland and made its second landfall over Buzen, Fukuoka Prefecture, at around 17:30 JST (08:30 UTC), with ten-minute sustained winds of 75 km/h (45 mph) and a central pressure of 992 hPa (29.29 inHg). [94], A tropical disturbance formed southeast of Guam on July 19 and tracked westward steadily. On September 30, Trami reached the most organized point of its duration after its peak, but Trami's structure started to deteriorate afterward, and the storm's winds gradually dropped as Trami resumed weakening. Storm surge from Maria combined with the astronomical high tide to create tides exceeding warning levels by up to 0.93 m (3.1 ft). [12] The system was last tracked by the JMA to the east of Vietnam on January 4. After making landfall in Tinian, Yutu underwent an eyewall replacement cycle, which it successfully completed on the next day, and the storm strengthened back to Category 5 super typhoon status on October 26, at 15:00 UTC. Damage on the island was estimated at US$150,000. At around 01:00 JST on July 29 (16:00 UTC July 28), Jongdari made landfall over Ise, Mie Prefecture with ten-minute maximum sustained winds at 120 km/h (75 mph) and the central pressure at 975 hPa (28.79 inHg). Kong-rey continued strengthening, and at 18:00 UTC on October 1, Kong-rey became a Category 4-equivalent super typhoon. On September 19, the NRL began to monitor a large tropical disturbance that formed near Chuuk in the Federated States of Micronesia. On 21:00 UTC of the same day, the JTWC began tracking the system, giving the identifier 17W. Pages in category "Typhoons in Guam" The following 35 pages are in this category, out of 35 total. [208] PAGASA names tropical cyclones which move into or form as a tropical depression in their area of responsibility located between 135°E and 115°E and between 5°N and 25°N, even if the cyclone has had an international name assigned to it. [54] Agricultural damage in Okinawa Prefecture were about ¥84.58 million (US$764,000). Karding maintained its intensity as a tropical depression due to moderate to strong easterly shear, despite persistent convection surrounding the system. On September 12, at 3 pm Philippine Standard Time, Mangkhut entered the PAR as a Category 5 super typhoon, and accordingly, PAGASA named the storm Ompong. The JTWC analysed a few hours later that the system had reached peak intensity with 1-minute winds of 110 km/h (70 mph). Power outages were widespread in Fujian, where more than 320,000 customers lost power. Losses in the prefecture reached JP¥853.7 million (US$7.69 million). Typhoon Maria, known in the Philippines as Typhoon Gardo, was a powerful tropical cyclone that affected Guam, the Ryukyu Islands, Taiwan, and East China in early July 2018. [30] A man in New Taipei City sustained fatal head injuries after losing his balance when inspecting his house. By September 11, Mangkhut became a typhoon, and made landfall on the islands of Rota, Northern Mariana Islands. As the steering influence transitioned to a subtropical ridge to the northeast, Jongdari executed a counter-clockwise turn to the southeast of Japan.[105]. [207] The Japan Meteorological Agency's RSMC Tokyo – Typhoon Center assigns international names to tropical cyclones on behalf of the World Meteorological Organization's Typhoon Committee, should they be judged to have 10-minute sustained windspeeds of 65 km/h (40 mph). The JTWC gave the system the designation 29W on next day. During the season 28 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). Though the JTWC stated that Shanshan had slightly weakened after a strengthening trend by August 6 after its eye became ragged and slightly displaced. On July 21, the system entered the PAGASA's Philippine Area of Responsibility or PAR, and was named Tropical Depression Josie, the 10th named storm to enter the PAR this season. Because of this, modern Guam is well prepared when a typhoon threatens. Encounting unfavorable environments by June 11, both agencies immediately stopped warning on the system as the system's center became exposed as the system was declared as an extratropical cyclone. Train and ferry services were also disrupted. [134] Although by August 16, Bebinca began to undergo a phase of rapid intensification as its center was obscured by a central dense overcast,[135] and thus, the JMA briefly upgraded Bebinca to a severe tropical storm. By November 22, Usagi (Samuel) intensified into a Category 1 typhoon. [130] The JMA did the same on 06:00 UTC of August 13, but continued to tracked it until it became an extratropical system on August 15.

[106] It also initiated a weakening trend while accelerating northwestward and then westward toward the Japanese island of Honshu. Shortly after, Man-yi intensified into a Category 2 typhoon. [33], Ahead of Typhoon Maria, authorities initiated evacuations in coastal parts of Fujian and Zhejiang provinces. [191], On June 4, the JMA began tracking on a weak tropical depression that had formed northeast of Yap. [131] In East China, Yagi killed a total of 3 people and total damages were counted to be CN¥2.51 billion (US$367 million).[41]. About 800 people in Zhejiang were rescued by emergency services, and 200 houses were damaged to varying degrees. By the next day, Neneng exited the PAR and became a tropical storm, with the JMA assigning the name Barijat to the storm, while TCWS were raised in the absence of the storm. [193][194] On July 16, a tropical depression developed over the South China Sea. After JMA upgraded Jongdari to a severe tropical storm at noon,[100] the system accelerated northeastward under the influence of a near-equatorial ridge to the south. [42][48] The JMA had tracked the remnants of Maliksi until 00:00 UTC of June 13. Late on November 16, a tropical disturbance formed east of Vietnam. [149] Then, it made landfall over Himeji, Hyōgo Prefecture shortly before 24:00 JST (15:00 UTC). Wakayama also recorded a maximum wind gust of 207 km/h. Roy Dec 8, 1990. Jongdari began to be inundated by subsidence on July 28, as the Fujiwhara effect had made the upper-level low move to the west of the typhoon. On September 4, a weakened but still powerful Jebi made landfall over the southern part of Tokushima Prefecture at around 12:00 JST (03:00 UTC) before moving over Osaka Bay and making another landfall at around Kobe, Hyōgo Prefecture at around 14:00 JST (05:00 UTC). [38] Shortly thereafter, Ewiniar made landfall over South China. See the aftermath of Super Typhoon Yutu, Typhoon Mangkhut and other natural disasters that affected our region in 2018.

[89] The JMA, however, began tracking the system until the early hours of July 22. Meteorologist Domenica Davis looks at the forecast for Typhoon Mangkhut. As of October 2018, 3 people have been killed by the storm, including 2 people from South Korea. Guam – Typhoon Mangkhut Damages Homes and Power Supply. [36] 05W meandered in a westward direction until it curved northward and after three days, the JTWC upgraded the system to a tropical storm. [150], Agricultural damage in Kyoto, Wakayama and Shiga Prefecture were about JP¥3.41 billion (US$30.6 million). By July 2, Prapiroon became a Category 1 typhoon, nearing Japan and Korea. On its current track, the eye of Typhoon Mangkhut may be directly over Rota or closer to Guam as a Category 2 to low-end Category 4. On October 28, Yutu quickly weakened, as ocean sea-surface heat content significantly declined. [141] By the early hours of August 15, both agencies issued their final warning on Hector, mentioning that Hector's low-level circulation had become elongated and that the storm already transitioned into a subtropical cyclone. Typhoon Wutip is currently gathering strength just south of Guam, making it the first typhoon of 2019 and just the second one on record to spin up in this part of the Pacific in February, according to data kept by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. ... October 28, 2018. [63][64] Favorable environmental conditions, including moderate vertical wind shear, poleward outflow enhanced by tropical upper tropospheric trough (TUTT) cells located to the northeast and to the northwest, sea surface temperatures between 30 and 31 °C, were contributing to the development of the system on July 4. While approaching China, 13W is about to become a named tropical storm, but missed tropical storm strength and was destroyed by high wind shear near China. In September, Typhoon Mangkhut became the fourth super typhoon of the season and made landfall on the island of Luzon in the Philippines. On October 27, Yutu's eye became cloud-filled, indicative of weakening, and the storm weakened to a Category 4 super typhoon. [132] By August 13, the JMA finally upgraded the system to a tropical storm, naming it Bebinca. The names Gardo, Josie, Maymay, Rosita, Samuel and Usman were used for the first (and only, in the cases of Rosita and Usman) time during the year after the names Glenda, Jose, Mario, Ruby, and Seniang were retired, as both the names Ruby and Rosita were used only for the first times due its damages in the Philippines. [123] After the course of five days, the system finally strengthened into a tropical depression by the JMA, with the JTWC following suit several hours later (designating it as 18W). [101], On July 26, as Jongdari started to interact with an upper-level cold-core low to the north which significantly enhanced poleward outflow,[102] it intensified to a typhoon in the afternoon despite increasingly unfavorable vertical wind shear. On November 19, a tropical depression formed well east of the Philippines and intensified into a tropical storm soon thereafter, receiving the name Man-yi. A low-pressure area developed into a tropical depression northeast of Palau on December 29, 2017. On September 22, Trami still strengthened and became a Severe Tropical Storm before strengthening to a Category 1 typhoon. Ewiniar maintained its intensity while over land until the JTWC issued its final advisory late on June 7. The JTWC followed suit at 00:00 UTC at August 16 and was designated as 22W. The typhoon made landfall over Tanabe, Wakayama Prefecture at around 20:00 JST (11:00 UTC) on September 30[163] as a Category 2-equivalent typhoon.
