typhoon philippines 2012

Early on September 20, the JMA upgraded the low-pressure area to a tropical depression, just after the JTWC issued a TCFA on the system. Devastation in a Philippine valley where typhoons aren’t expected Liz Neisloss and Jethro Mullen , CNN Updated 10:08 PM EST, Thu December 6, 2012 “Ulysses”, with maximum sustained winds of 155 km per hour (96 miles per hour) and gusts of up to 255 kph (158 mph), made landfall three times starting on … At least two people were killed and eighty others were injured across the country. [130][131][132] As the system entered the PAR early on September 11, the PAGASA named it Karen. [146][147], As it moved westward it strengthened to become Tropical Storm Maria on October 14. Here are the most dangerous Philippine typhoons ever recorded. Strong winds derailed a train in Quezon. In December, Typhoon Bopha, an unusually very low-latitude but very powerful tropical cyclone, caused catastrophic damage in Mindanao in the Philippines. [citation needed], As Guchol went through rapid intensification with a well defined eye on June 16, the JMA upgraded it to a typhoon early that day, and the JTWC upgraded it further to a category 3 typhoon, and later a category 4 super typhoon. [60][61] After Damrey had drifted slowly for two days, the JMA upgraded it to a severe tropical storm northeast of Chichi-jima late on July 30, when the storm began to accelerate moving west-northwest and form a banding eye. The Philippine Archipelago is situated between Taiwan and Borneo, with the waters of the Pacific Ocean and China Sea washing its coastline. Early on March 29, the JMA upgraded the tropical depression to a tropical storm, and named it Pakhar, because the storm's convection had completely wrapped around the circulation center. Flooding is imminent as different dams are expected to reach its critical level and possibly release huge millimeters of water. [167] Later that day, the system passed over or close to several of the Visayan Islands, before the JTWC reported that the system had reached its peak 1-minute sustained windspeeds of 65 km/h (35 mph).

UN asks for $65m for victims of Typhoon Bopha, as death toll rises to nearly 650. [77] However, the JMA designated it as a tropical storm with the name Kirogi early on August 8. On October 16, an Anticyclone located on the north west of Prapiroon became slightly displaced to the southeast, which brought wind shear to Prapiroon's northern periphery's convection to be pushed to the south, and caused a strong southern outflow. On September 24, the JTWC further upgraded the system to a minimal tropical storm and named it Ewiniar, as the system started moving away from Jelawat, which allowed it to strengthen. On September 28, it struck Taiwan in typhoon strength. Khanun weakened into a tropical depression near the Korean Demilitarized Zone early on July 19, and it became post-tropical late on the same day. [167][175] 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. The large storm developed a mid-level circulation center, with microwave satellite imagery showing that the storm had become less organized during the morning hours of October 2 because it had become slightly elongated and on October 3, the JMA upgraded it to Severe Tropical Storm, and the storm's center soon passed over Iwo To. Early on December 24, the JMA reported that a tropical depression had developed within a trough of low pressure, about 220 km (135 mi) to the north-east of Palau. On May 30, the disturbance began moving northwestwards, as it slowly strengthened. [96] Later that night, the JTWC issued their final warning on the system as it weakened further and sped up inland. At 12Z on August 7, the JMA upgraded Haikui to a typhoon, but the JTWC downgraded it to a tropical storm simultaneously. On June 18, the JTWC upgraded Talim to a tropical storm. The typhoon killed … [114][115][116] Steady weakening continued as Bolaven approached the Korean Peninsula and it eventually made landfall in North Korea late on August 28 before transitioning into an extratropical cyclone. Early on February 17, the JMA reported that a tropical depression had developed, about 800 km (495 mi) to the southeast of Manila on the Philippine island of Luzon. 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). On June 17, the HKO raised the Standby signal, No. [20], Saola caused widespread rains in the Philippines due to the enhancement of the southwest monsoon. [citation needed], The monsoonal trough spawned a tropical disturbance early on August 10,[83] which had organizing convection and a weak circulation. Early on May 22, the JMA upgraded the system to a tropical storm and named it, Late on June 7, a tropical disturbance formed south-southeast of, Late on July 12, a large cluster of thunderstorms associated with an. It was the ninth named storm and the fourth typhoon of the 2012 Pacific typhoon season. However, the effects of these rains were limited and only one fatality took place. The season's first named storm, Pakhar, developed on March 28 while the last named storm, Wukong, dissipated on December 29. 9 regarding Tropical Depression Ambo", "Final Report re Effects of Southwest Monsoon and Typhoon "Butchoy" (Guchol)", ESCAP/WMO Typhoon Committee: 7th Integrated Workshop, "JMA WWJP25 Warning and Summary July 21, 2012 12z", "Significant Tropical Weather Advisory for the Western and South Pacific Ocean", "Tropical Cyclone Formation Alert June 25, 2012 21z", "Severe Weather Bulletin Number One, Tropical Cyclone Alert: Tropical Depression "Dindo" Issued at 5:00 pm, Tuesday, June 26, 2012", "RSMC Tropical Cyclone Advisory June 26, 2012 12z", "Tropical Depression 07W (Doksuri) Warning Nr 001", "Tropical Storm 07W (Doksuri) Warning Nr 002", "Tropical Storm 07W (Doksuri) Prognostic Reasoning Nr 004", "Tropical Storm 07W (Doksuri) Prognostic Reasoning Nr 007", "Tropical Storm Khanun kills at least 7 in North Korea", "Tropical Storm Vicente Tropical Cyclone Advisory 211200", "Tropical Storm 09W (Vicente) Advisory Five", "Typhoon Vicente Tropical Cyclone Advisory 231200", "Severe Tropical Storm Vicente Tropical Cyclone Advisory 240000", "Typhoon 09W (Vicente) Advisory Fourteen", "Tropical Depression Vicente Tropical Cyclone Advisory 241800", "Tropical Storm Damrey Tropical Cyclone Advisory 281200", "Severe Tropical Storm Damrey Tropical Cyclone Advisory 301800", "Tropical Storm Haikui Tropical Cyclone Advisory 030000", "Severe Tropical Storm Haikui Tropical Cyclone Advisory 051200", "Tropical Depression 13W (Kirogi) Prognostic Reasoning", "Tropical Storm 13W (Kirogi) best track analysis", "Tropical Storm 13W (Thirteen) Warning Nr 003", "JMA WWJP25 Warning and Summary August 7, 2012 00z", "Tropical Storm Kirogi Tropical Cyclone Advisory 0000z", "Tropical Depression 13W (Kirogi) Warning Nr 018", "Severe Tropical Storm Kirogi Tropical Cyclone Advisory 0600z", "Tropical Storm 13W (Kirogi) Warning Nr 019", "Tropical Storm 13W (Kirogi) Warning Nr 021", "Typhoon Kai-tak – Tropical Weather Outlook 1", "Tropical Weather Outlook 2 – Typhoon Kai-tak", "JMA Tropical Cyclone Advisory 1 – Typhoon Kai-tak", "Severe Weather Bulletin Number ONE – Tropical Depression "HELEN, "TROPICAL DEPRESSION 14W (FOURTEEN) WARNING NR 001", "TROPICAL STORM 14W (KAI-TAK) WARNING NR 004", "PROGNOSTIC REASONING FOR TYPHOON 14W (KAI-TAK) WARNING NR 13", "ROGNOSTIC REASONING FOR TYPHOON 14W (KAI-TAK) WARNING NR 18", "Weather Bulletin Number FOURTEEN(FINAL) on Tropical Storm "HELEN, "PROGNOSTIC REASONING FOR TYPHOON 14W (KAI-TAK) WARNING NR 20", "PROGNOSTIC REASONING FOR TROPICAL STORM 14W (KAI-TAK) WARNING NR 21", "TROPICAL STORM 14W (KAI-TAK) WARNING NR 022", "JMA WWJP25 Warning and Summary August 17, 2012 06z", "Tropical Storm Tembin Tropical Cyclone Advisory 0000z", "Tropical Depression 15W (Fourteen) Warning Nr 001", "Tropical Cyclone Alert: Tropical Depression "IGME": Number One", "PROGNOSTIC REASONING FOR TYPHOON 15W (TEMBIN) WARNING NR 05", "Prognostic Reasoning for Tropical Cyclone Warning 14 on Typhoon Tembin", "Prognostic Reasoning for Tropical Cyclone Warning 22 on Typhoon Tembin", "Prognostic Reasoning for Tropical Storm 16W (Bolaven) Warning NR 002", "Prognostic Reasoning for Typhoon 16W (Bolaven) Warning NR 07", "JMA Tropical Cyclone Advisory Forty-Nine", "Prognostic Reasoning for Typhoon 16W (Bolaven) Warning NR 27", "JMA Tropical Cyclone Advisory Fifty-Four", "Prognostic Reasoning for Typhoon 16W (Bolaven) Warning NR 32", "JMA Tropical Cyclone Advisory Eighty-Three (Final)", "Massive Typhoon Bolaven roars over Okinawa, heads for Koreas", "Typhoon Bolaven 2012: Powerful Winds, Rain Smash Ships", "Death toll from Typhoon Bolaven in North Korea reaches 59", "Typhoon Bolaven hits North Korea, as death toll in the South rises", "Tropical Cyclone Formation Alert 101400", "Tropical Cyclone Warning 001 – Tropical Storm Sanba", http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/hurricanes/archives/2012/h2012_Jelawat.html, http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/hurricanes/archives/2012/h2012_Ewiniar.html, http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/hurricanes/archives/2012/h2012_Maliksi.html, "JMA WWJP25 Warning and Summary September 29, 2012 12z", http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/hurricanes/archives/2012/h2012_Gaemi.html, "Unnamed Tropical Depression, Tropical Cyclone Advisory 0000z", "Tropical Cyclone Warning 003 – Tropical Storm Prapiroon", http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/hurricanes/archives/2012/h2012_Prapiroon.html, "Significant Tropical Weather Advisory for the Western and South Pacific Ocean October 13, 2012 06z", "Tropical Storm Maria Tropical Cyclone Advisory 1200z", "Severe Tropical Storm Maria Tropical Cyclone Advisory 0000z", "JMA WWJP25 Warning and Summary October 21, 2012 12z", "16 missing, 6 boats capsize in Tacloban", "Cebu City classes suspended, Signal No. On June 20, the JMA issued their last advisories on Guchol, as it fully transitioned into an extratropical cyclone north east of Japan. Philippines… As a result, the JMA officially named the storm Bopha. Most forecast models predicts Saola to pass very near on the northern coastline of Taiwan, but this is defied on August 1, when Saola had made landfall on Taiwan as a Category 2 typhoon. It was subsequently replaced on the list with Pepito.[208]. Philippines (Negros Oriental): Earthquake Situation - as of 07 February 2012 Format Map Source. On June 19, as the HKO raised the Strong Wind signal, No. [121] In mainland Japan, two people drowned after being swept away by rough seas. On September 29, the JMA upgraded the system to a tropical depression. [15], Although Pakhar did not affect the Philippines as a tropical cyclone, its precursor produced heavy rains across part of the nation. [178][179] During that day the depression remained near stationary, before the JMA issued their final advisory on the system during the next day as the system dissipated. A fast-moving typhoon blew away from the Philippines on Monday after leaving at least 13 people missing, forcing thousands of villagers to flee to safety and flooding rural villages. Typhoon Ulysses (Vamco), the Philippines' 21st tropical cyclone for 2020, hit Luzon hardest from November 11 to 12. [30], A low-pressure area formed east of Palau on September 9. During the season the names Pakhar, Doksuri, Haikui, Sanba, Maliksi and Son-Tinh were used for the first time, after they had replaced the names Matsa, Nabi, Longwang, Chanchu, Bilis and Saomai, which were retired after the 2005 and 2006 seasons. [205] While the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration assigns names to 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-25°N even if the cyclone has had an international name assigned to it. [207] The names Carina and Ferdie were used for the first time during the year after the names Cosme, and Frank were retired. [citation needed] Early on October 20, the JMA reported that Maria had dissipated. We have finished the 2011 Typhoons page and prepared the 2012 page. Early on July 15, the JTWC issued a TCFA on the system, and it upgraded the system to a tropical depression later that day. Within the northwestern Pacific Ocean, there are two separate agencies that assign names to tropical cyclones, which can often result in a cyclone having two names. [18], On May 20, the JMA reported that a tropical depression had developed about 525 km (325 mi) to the southeast of Guam. [62] On August 1, the JTWC upgraded Damrey to a category 1 typhoon, while the system passed through the Ōsumi Islands in Japan, as it started to develop a well defined eye. PAGASA, in its Severe Weather Bulletin No. [citation needed] On September 30, it made landfall on Japan, then on October 1 the system became an extratropical cyclone. [37] On June 27, Doksuri's low-level circulation center became exposed due to moderate easterly wind shear. The JTWC downgraded Guchol to a tropical storm on June 19, as it made landfall over Kii Peninsula in Japan. It moved slowly inland, making a counter-clockwise loop. Thousands trapped in Philippines as toll from Typhoon Vamco rises. About sixty families in Rodriguez, Rizal were evacuated due to severe flooding in the area. [100] The JTWC issued a TCFA on the system late on August 18;[101] early on the next day, the JMA upgraded it to a tropical storm and named it Tembin, and the JTWC upgraded it to a tropical depression. About three roads in northern Luzon were impassable due to floods and landslides. [11][12] On July 31, the JTWC upgraded Saola to a category 1 typhoon again. [1] These agencies include the Tropical Storm Risk (TSR) Consortium of the University College London, Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) and the Taiwan's Central Weather Bureau. Early on July 28, the JTWC upgraded the system to a tropical depression, whilst the JMA upgraded it to a tropical storm and named it Saola. Later that day Bopha weakened into tropical depression and dissipated completely 70 kilometers north of Binabalian, Philippines. More than 9,300 houses were damages. [citation needed] Late on May 27, the JMA reported that Sanvu had degenerated into an extratropical low, before the remnants dissipated during May 30. [44], Originally Khanun's large area of convention on July 16, the JMA upgraded the system to a tropical depression on July 18. On June 2, the JMA upgraded Mawar to a severe tropical storm, and the JTWC upgraded it to a category 1 typhoon as the convection began to wrap up and organize. Due to its geographical location astride the Pacific Typhoon Belt, cyclonic storms and floods have been the principal natural hazard in the Philippines—based on frequency of occurrence and scale of intensity. Damages and deaths from a storm include when the storm was a precursor wave, or an extratropical low. [126] Significant damage also took place in North Korea where at least 59 people were killed and 50 others were reported missing. On October 1, the system strengthened into a tropical storm,[142]and was named "Gaemi" by the JMA, and soon strengthened into a Severe Tropical Storm on October 3. [180][181][182] 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. The 75-year-old leader has been criticized for his absences from public view during the coronavirus pandemic and recent storms, but aides say he’s working even when away from the public. The eye ended up at 70 kilometers across. Four million at risk as super-typhoon to hit Philippines within hours. On August 30, Tembin made landfall on South Korea and transitioned into an extratropical storm, before dissipating two days later. [108] Due to minor land interaction, the JMA downgraded Tembin to a severe tropical storm early on August 24, and the JTWC downgraded it to a tropical storm later. 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. Forming as a tropical depression on August 19 to the southwest of the Mariana Islands,[110] Bolaven steadily intensified as it slowly moved west-northwestward in a region favoring tropical development. [35] Two passenger boarding bridges collapsed at Taoyuan International Airport, which serves Taipei, slightly damaging a China Airlines aircraft and forcing the company to scrap the flight. The ragged eye soon became well defined as seen in Microwave imagery later that day, and was soon upgraded further to a category 3 typhoon. Classes in Cebu City were suspended the next day. After being upgraded to a severe tropical storm by the JMA late on May 24, Sanvu's eye directly passed over Iwo Jima late on May 25. [167][174] 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. The weak, remnant low later drifted south west to the Gulf of Tokin, and regenerated slightly on August 7. Originally a cold-core low, the system became a tropical disturbance southwest of Minamitorishima late on July 26. Early on August 8, the JMA downgraded Haikui to a severe tropical storm, when the JTWC issued the final warning. [136], Late on September 17, a tropical disturbance formed east of Guam. [14], On March 17, a tropical disturbance formed northwest of Palau, and was located in an area of moderate vertical wind shear with unfavorable sea surface temperatures. In Bicol region, more than 332 passengers were stranded at ports due to Mawar. Throughout China, 1 people were killed and total economic losses were counted to be CNY2.25 billion (US$354 million). On June 5, Mawar started its extratropical transition, and the JMA downgraded Mawar to a severe tropical storm. [6] On August 6, TSR tweaked its forecast but still expected activity to be 10% above the 1965–2011 average with 27.4 tropical storms, 17.4 typhoons, 9.3 "intense" typhoons and an ACE index of about 327 units.[4]. [145], Late on October 12, the JMA started to monitor a tropical depression that had developed near the Northern Mariana Islands, about 400 km (250 mi) to the northeast of Guam. The system was soon upgraded to a tropical storm less than a day after formation and further to a typhoon by August 21. [169][170] Early on December 25, the JMA reported that the depression had become a tropical storm and named it as Wukong, before reporting that the system had attained its peak 10-minute sustained windspeeds of 75 km/h (45 mph). [183] 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. [206], During the season PAGASA used its own naming scheme for the 17 tropical cyclones, that either developed within or moved into their self-defined area of responsibility. [42], Late on July 12, a large cluster of thunderstorms associated with an Upper Level Low formed a weak low pressure area northwest of Guam. The Philippines is struck by several typhoons and tropical storms every year. On November 1, Super Typhoon Goni struck the Philippines with sustained winds of 140 mph and gusts as high as 195 mph. [151] The storm caused heavy rains and strong winds over the Visayas. [186][187][188][189], On August 5, the Central Pacific Hurricane Center started to monitor a TUTT cell that had developed into a subtropical low, while located about 400 km (250 mi) to the southeast of Midway Atoll. [118], Although Bolaven struck the Ryukyu Islands as a powerful typhoon, damage was less than expected. [58][59] 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. [21], Sanvu brought tropical storm force wind gusts and between 1.5–2 inches (38–51 mm) of rainfall to parts of Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands. [54][55] Late on the same day, the JMA downgraded Vicente to a tropical depression.[56]. [10] On July 30, the JTWC upgraded Saola to a category 1 typhoon, as it started to develop an eye-like feature, but soon downgraded it to a tropical storm late on the same day. Total economic losses were estimated in excess of ¥8 billion (US$100 million). In Mindanao where the typhoon made its landfall, thousands of families were left homeless and more than 170,000 moved to evacuation centers. 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. On June 1, the JMA upgraded the system to a tropical storm and named it Mawar. [98], On August 16, a tropical disturbance formed southeast of Taiwan. Later that day, the JTWC upgraded Saola to a tropical storm. [33][34] Later that day, the JMA upgraded the system to a tropical storm and named it Doksuri,[35] and the JTWC upgraded Doksuri to a tropical depression. Kanalımıza Abone Olmayı Unutmayın. Don't forget to subscribe to our channel. [5] Between three and five of the systems were predicted to affect Taiwan compared to an average of around 3.6. Typhoon Bopha seemed to come almost out of nowhere. [82] The remnants of the system then entered the Sea of Okhotsk. A Philippine diocese has appealed for people in desperate need of clean and safe water following Typhoon Vamco. [6][7] Soon, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) upgraded the system to a tropical depression and named it Gener. Here we go again. [28] In Japan, airlines cancelled 420 domestic and international flights because of the strong winds, affecting 32,600 passengers. [30][31][32][33], In all, 54 fatalities were confirmed in the Philippines, with three others went missing and 35 people were injured. Late on the same day, the JMA upgraded the system to a tropical storm and named it Jelawat, and so did the JTWC. More than 200 international and domestic flight were reportedly cancelled because of the storm. During May 21, the JTWC also upgraded the system to a tropical depression later. [163] On November 27, a deep centralized convective cover developed over the LLCC and the JTWC too upgraded Bopha into a tropical storm. All damage figures are in 2012 USD. [53] Due to land interaction, the JMA downgraded Vicente to a severe tropical storm early on July 24, and the JTWC downgraded Vicente to a category 3 typhoon. [72] Early on August 8, the JMA downgraded Haikui to a severe tropical storm, when the JTWC issued the final warning. [159] and on November 25 both JTWC and JMA upgraded its status to a Tropical Depression, while the JTWC designated it with 26W. [27], Late on June 7, a tropical disturbance formed south-southeast of Pohnpei. [citation needed], 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. [65], Late on July 31, a tropical disturbance formed within a large monsoon trough. The season's first named storm, Pakhar, developed on March 28, while the season's last named storm, Wukong, dissipated on December 29. [204] 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). Taiwanese Army soldiers rescued more than 1,000 people from remote mountainous villages in the north and east. [107] On August 23, Tembin re-intensified into a category 3 typhoon, before it made landfall over Pingtung, Taiwan later on the same day. On June 3, the JMA upgraded Mawar to a typhoon after the JTWC upgraded it to a category 2 typhoon. [164] By the evening of December 2, the storm entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility and was named Pablo. Typhoon Phanfone, known locally as Typhoon … Typhoon Goni: Philippines orders evacuations ahead of 2020’s strongest storm. [13] Late on the same day, the JMA upgraded Saola to a typhoon, and the JTWC soon upgraded it to a category 2 typhoon early on the next day. [citation needed] The system then dissipated near Hebei on August 4. [29], On June 14, a low-pressure area within the monsoonal trough formed east of Hainan, China. Late on August 25, the JMA upgraded Tembin to a typhoon again, and the system intensified into a category 2 typhoon early on the next day. Early on June 4, the JTWC upgraded Mawar to a category 3 typhoon but downgraded it to a category 2 typhoon only six hours later, due to increasing wind shear coming from a subtropical jet stream located over Japan. The scope of this article is limited to the Pacific Ocean, to the north of the equator between 100°E and the 180th meridian. [22], On May 29, a tropical disturbance formed northwest of Palau. The biggest loss of human life was in two counties of South Pyongan Province. [168] The JTWC and PAGASA subsequently initiated advisories on the system with the latter naming it Quinta. On August 22, Tembin began to undergo an eyewall replacement cycle, as it further weakened to a category 1 typhoon. Offshore, nine people drowned after two Chinese vessels sank. [citation needed] Afterward, Typhoon Tembin interacted with the nearby Typhoon Bolaven (Julian). [citation needed], The storm killed at least one person in South Korea,[citation needed] while in North Korea, state-run media reported that at least seven people were killed in Kangwon Province, with an eighth fatality reported elsewhere. [97] The JMA stopped tracking the storm early the next morning, no longer considering it a tropical cyclone. From late August to September, three very powerful typhoons, Bolaven, Sanba and Jelawat, directly hit Okinawa Island successively. [12] Over the next few days the JMA continued to monitor the depression before it was last noted during February 20. On May 26, strong vertical wind sheer and cool sea surface temperature caused weaker convection around Sanvu, and the eye began to dissipate. Almost 70 inches fell in some areas, ranking Saola within the top 5 wettest cyclones to ever hit the island. The flooding also inundated nearly 3,870 homes, leaving more than 16,250 people homeless. [143] On October 7, the JMA upgraded the tropical depression to a tropical storm, and named it Prapiroon. [86] That day, the JTWC also initiated advisories on Tropical Depression 14W. Because of land interaction and colder sea surface temperatures, the JTWC downgraded Pakhar to a severe tropical storm, early on March 31. [9], 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. On September 13, the JTWC reported that Sanba strengthened into a category 5 super typhoon, and had intensified into the strongest typhoon since Megi in 2010. 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. On July 26, the Japan Meteorological Agency (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.
