The JTWC also issued warnings on storms within the basin, operating from Pearl Harbor in Hawaii and supplying forecasts to the United States Armed Forces in the Indian and Pacific Oceans. 1200 UTC (5 a.m. PDT) – Tropical Storm Lowell again weakens into a tropical depression. A complex formation involving a tropical wave and a gale over the Gulf of Tehuantepec formed Tropical Depression One-E on May 24.  The remnants of Huko later reentered the basin, eventually affecting California. [nb 4] In Hong Kong, 32 people were injured due to the storm, and 41 flights were canceled.  On July 25, the typhoon weakened to a severe tropical storm while at the southernmost point of its track.  On May 19, the JMA estimated peak 10-minute winds of 175 km/h (110 mph), and the JTWC estimated 1-minute winds of 260 km/h (160 mph); this made Hagibis a super typhoon, the second of the year. By October 11, winds were fairly weak near the center and were stronger in outer rainbands.  It formed on December 2, having originated as an area of convection to the east-southeast of Pohnpei in late November. , Despite moving over warm waters, Elida began to weaken because it began an eyewall replacement cycle. 1200 UTC (5 a.m. PDT) – Tropical Depression Fausto degenerates into a low. The other time this happened since 1966 was in the 1975 season. , Before striking Japan, Higos produced strong winds in the Northern Marianas Islands while passing to their north. , Hurricane Kenna was the third-strongest Pacific hurricane to make landfall on record. Its rate of intensification picked up, and Alma became a hurricane on May 28.  For much of its duration, Halong moved toward the northwest, gradually intensifying into a tropical storm.  In the country, Fengshen dropped heavy rainfall and produced heavy rains, causing mudslides, $4 million (¥475 million JPY) in crop damage,[nb 5] and one death.

As part of its duty as a Regional Specialized Meteorological Center (RSMC), the JMA's Typhoon Center in Tokyo 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 winds of 65 km/h (40 mph).  At that time, gradual strengthening was anticipated.  The developing storm dropped rainfall on Guam that ended the island's wildfire season.  Initially expected to become a hurricane only briefly, late on July 21, the NHC reported that Douglas had become a hurricane. Wind shear dissipated the depression on October 20.. The western Pacific basin covers the Pacific Ocean, north of the equator and west of the International Date Line.

Track=Kaemi 2006 track.png Formed= July 19 Dissipated= July 26 10-min winds=80 1-min winds=85 Pressure=960A tropical depression formed on July 18 near the Caroline Islands, it quickly strengthened to tropical storm strength the same day.On July 19, the storm was named Kaemi by the JMA.The correct name Gaemi was submitted by South Korea and is a Korean word for ant. The following storms were named in this manner: On March 31, 2003, at the 25th session of the RA IV hurricane committee, the World Meteorological Organization retired the name Kenna from its rotating name lists due to the deaths and damages it caused, and it will not be used again for another Pacific hurricane. [nb 5], Typhoon Rammasun was the first of four typhoons to contribute to heavy rainfall and deadly flooding in the Philippines in July 2002; there were 85 deaths related to the four storms, with 2,463 homes damaged or destroyed.  In Hunan Province, the storm's remnants merged with a cold front and destroyed 12,400 houses. Alma rapidly fell apart, and degenerated into a weak low pressure area by June 1. There were 153 deaths related to the storm, mostly inland in Hunan, and damage totaled $322 million (¥2.665 billion CNY). , A weak tropical wave located over the open Pacific Ocean organized into Tropical Depression Fifteen-E on October 22. However, it did send heavy waves along the shores of Mexico. Ele was downgraded to a tropical storm on September 7, a depression on September 9, and then dissipated shortly afterwards. Ele did not affect land.  The storm caused 22 ferry routes and 10 flights to be canceled, and temporarily shut down refineries near Tokyo. , Kenna killed four people in Mexico and injured over a hundred.  Two dams were destroyed in Guangdong by the flooding, and 10 people were killed by a landslide. The hurricane began to weaken almost immediately thereafter under the influence of wind shear and cool water.  These dates conventionally delimit the period of each year when most tropical cyclones form in the northwestern Pacific Ocean. It stayed disorganized for the next several days. Pres.  Around its peak intensity, the eye of the typhoon moved over Guam and Rota.

Four tropical depressions formed and dissipated before reaching the intensity of a tropical storm.  Damage on the island totaled $60.5 million, and there were 23 injuries. Overall, there were 37 tropical depressions declared officially or unofficially, of which 26 became named storms; of those, there were 15 typhoons, which is the equivalent of a minimal hurricane, while 8 of the 15 typhoon intensified into super typhoons unofficially by the JTWC.  Early on November 23, Haishen intensified into a typhoon; around that time, it began moving to the north due to an approaching trough. Animation of the 2002 Western Pacific Typhoon Season.

Rammasun developed around the same time as Typhoon Chataan, but farther to the west. 1800 UTC (5 a.m. PDT) – Tropical Depression Fausto regenerates about 430 miles (795 km) north of the Hawaiian Islands.  After striking Guam, Pongsona began moving to the north and later to the northeast, quickly weakening due to the presence of dry air and interaction with an approaching mid-latitude storm. The storm rapidly dissipated over Mexico. No impact was reported. The JTWC upgraded Noguri to a typhoon late on June 8, after an eye developed. It weakened into a remnant low on September 8. Late on October 28, Huko reached hurricane strength, but its close proximity to Tropical Storm Lowell and a brief increase in wind shear weakened it back to a tropical storm on October 30. 02/02", "Tropical Cyclone Report Tropical Storm Lowell", "Monthly Global Tropical Cyclone Summary October 2002", "Tropical Cyclone Report Tropical Depression Sixteen-E", "Tropical Depression Sixteen-E Discussion Number 2", "Subject: B3) What names have been retired in the Atlantic and East Pacific basin?  The threat of the storm prompted school closures and 20 airline flight cancellations.  An approaching trough turned Maysak to the northeast, and on October 29 it reached peak winds of 100 km/h (65 mph), according to the JMA. They used the Dvorak technique and NWP to estimate 10-minute sustained winds and barometric pressure. The system was responsible for heavy rains, causing flooding along a small stream in Bakersfield.  Douglas became a Category 2 hurricane on July 22, reaching peak winds of 105 miles per hour (170 km/h). Alma then turned north, moving near the edge of a subtropical ridge over Mexico. , The monsoon trough spawned a tropical disturbance near the Caroline Islands in the middle of May.  Rusa also destroyed large areas of crops in the country, which was already affected by ongoing famine conditions. Initially poorly organized, it moved to the north and steadily intensified, becoming Tropical Storm Huko early on October 26 while turning northwestward. Early on July 19, the depression struck Samar Island in the Philippines, and continued northwestward through the archipelago.  Initially, the system absorbed nearby dry air, although the storm was able to continue developing deep convection.  On November 7, Huko became extratropical, and later that day its remnants crossed back into the central Pacific. Two storms – Ele and Huko – entered the basin from the Central Pacific, east of the International Date Line. As it approached southeastern China, the depression intensified into Tropical Storm Hagupit and reached peak winds of 85 km/h (50 mph).  On August 15, the JMA estimated 10-minute winds of 155 km/h (100 mph), and the JTWC estimated 1-minute winds of 250 km/h (155 mph), making it a super typhoon. Hernan then degenerated into a remnant low on September 6. , A tropical wave formed Tropical Depression Nine-E on August 26.  The JTWC initiated advisories on June 6, and despite the favorable conditions, the depression remained weak.  It was also the second-strongest October hurricane in any season, and the third strongest Pacific hurricane overall. It moved westward due to a ridge to the north, and failed to intensify due to weak outflow and dry air. Within the western Pacific Ocean, both the JMA and PAGASA assign names to tropical cyclones that develop in the basin, which can result in a tropical cyclone having two names.  On June 4, a tropical depression developed just off the east coast of Hainan, with a broad circulation and scattered convection. Farmers required aid, and many fruit crops were destroyed.  On two occasions, the JTWC assessed Maysak as briefly intensifying into a typhoon, based on an eye feature, although increased shear later caused weakening. They became Typhoon Ele and Typhoon Huko, keeping their original name and "C" suffix in their warnings by JTWC.. 0000 UTC (2 p.m. August 24 HST) – Tropical Depression One-C strengthens into a tropical storm and is named Alika. 1800 UTC (5 a.m. PDT) – Tropical Storm Fausto becomes a hurricane. At the time of its peak, the typhoon was located about 305 km (190 mi) west-southwest of the northernmost Northern Marianas Islands. 0600 UTC (11 p.m. PDT) – Tropical Storm Fausto is absorbed by an extratropical low. The agency noted a stronger than normal subtropical ridge over the open Pacific Ocean, as well as ongoing El Niño conditions that favored development, but expected below-normal development in the South China Sea.  Over 17,000 houses were damaged, and large areas of crop fields were flooded. 1200 UTC (5 a.m. PDT) – Hurricane Alma weakens into a tropical storm. Despite predictions of weakening, the typhoon continued to intensify, reaching peak 10-minute winds of 175 km/h (110 mph) on March 5.  On September 4, the typhoon's eye crossed over Okinawa.  Halong struck southeastern Japan, dropping heavy rainfall and producing strong winds that left $89.8 million (¥10.3 billion JPY) in damage.  An approaching trough weakened the ridge, which turned the storm to the northwest. After contributing to the demise of Alika, Ele intensified to winds of 205 km/h (125 mph) before crossing the International Date Line on August 30. Iselle never made landfall. 1630 UTC - Hurricane Kenna makes landfall near San Blas, Mexico with winds of 140 mph (225 km/h), only the. 0600 UTC (11 p.m. PDT) – Hurricane Elida becomes the first category 5 hurricane of the season.  The typhoon also dropped heavy rainfall in neighboring North Korea, leaving 26,000 people homeless and killing three. , On February 15, a weak tropical depression developed east of Mindanao, according to the JMA; by the next day, the system dissipated.  Other than the aforementioned regions, Hernan had no significant impact on land.  The PAGASA assigns names to all tropical cyclones that 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. 2002 Pacific Typhoon Season. , Part of the same tropical wave that formed Tropical Depression Seven in the Atlantic basin organized into Tropical Depression Twelve-E on September 15. 2002 Eastern North Pacific Hurricane Season Track Map (click to enlarge) If you have trouble viewing linked files, obtain a free viewer for the file format: Adobe Acrobat (pdf) Google Earth (kml/kmz) Quick Links and Additional Resources. 2002 Pacific Typhoon Season but all the storms talk - YouTube It tracked west-northwestward for its first few days, steadily intensifying into a powerful typhoon by September 29. Areas of convection developed farther east than usual, causing many storms to develop east of 150° E. The average point of formation was 145.9° E, the easternmost point since 1951.  Both Guam and the Northern Marianas Islands were declared federal disaster areas, which made federal funding available for repairing storm damage.  The system developed into a tropical depression on May 14 about 500 km (310 mi) southwest of Chuuk Lagoon, and early the next day the JTWC initiated advisories.  After weakening to a tropical storm, Rammasun passed just west of the South Korean island of Jejudo, where high waves killed one person. 0000 UTC (5 p.m. PDT) – Hurricane Hernan strengthens into a category 4 hurricane. The names not retired from this list were used again in the 2008 season.  A ridge to the southeast steered the depression to the northeast, and on May 30 the depression made landfall in southwestern Taiwan.  Nakri killed one fisherman and a shipworker during its passage. In addition, rainfall damaged several homes in Tequila, Jalisco, but the National Hurricane Center believes that Boris likely did not cause the rain. Shortly afterwards, wind shear increased. It was upgraded to a tropical storm and named Genevieve the next day. It includes their duration, names, landfall(s), denoted in parentheses, damages, and death totals. , A small circulation formed northeast of the Northern Marianas Islands on July 18. The 2001 Pacific typhoon season has no official bounds; it ran year-round in 2001, but most tropical cyclones tend to form in the northwestern Pacific Ocean between May and November. not related to ongoing real Pacific typhoon season. , An area of disturbed weather near Panama drifted to a location south of Puerto Ángel, Oaxaca, and organized into Tropical Depression Four-E on July 9.  It moved generally northwestward due to a ridge to the north, quickly intensifying into Tropical Storm Phanfone by August 12. It tracked northwestward within the monsoon trough, steered by a mid-level ridge.  Increasing shear and disrupted outflow due to land interaction weakened the system, and the JTWC discontinued advisories on July 22. In Guam, the federal government provided about $125 million in funding for individuals and other programs. For several days, Rusa moved to the northwest, eventually intensifying into a powerful typhoon. , A complex formation involving a tropical wave and a gale over the Gulf of Tehuantepec formed Tropical Depression One-E on May 24.  Upon becoming a hurricane, Douglas was situated in low wind shear environment; however, Hurricane Douglas was expected to reach cold waters in 36 hours, and thus was not predicted to become a major hurricane. The rainfall and storm surge flooded much of the coastline as well as Yap's capital, Colonia. The convection diminished, and the JTWC declared Noguri extratropical while the storm was approaching Japan. 0000 UTC (5 p.m. October 24 PDT) – Hurricane Kenna becomes the strongest of the season with winds of 165 mph (265 km/h) and a pressure of 913 mbar (26.96.  The JTWC estimated peak 1-minute winds of 250 km/h (155 mph), while the JMA estimated 10-minute winds of 155 km/h (100 mph). Storms that form east of the date line and north of the equator are called hurricanes; see 2002 Pacific hurricane season. Most of the season's impact, including all casualties and most of the damage, was caused by Kenna.  It moved quickly to the west-northwest, intensifying into Tropical Storm Haishen late on November 20 to the southeast of Guam.  The JMA continued tracking the storm until it dissipated over the Kii Peninsula on June 11.  Rainfall was beneficial in alleviating drought conditions in Guangdong, although further inland the rains occurred after months of deadly flooding. , Wind gusts on Iwo Jima reached 168 km/h (105 mph). It became a hurricane two days later, and briefly weakened back to tropical storm status before becoming a hurricane again on October 31. For storms that form in the Central Pacific Hurricane Center's area of responsibility, encompassing the area between 140 degrees west and the International Date Line, all names are used in a series of four rotating lists.  The next day, both the JMA and PAGASA classified the system as a depression, and PAGASA named it "Caloy". 0000 UTC (5 p.m. PDT) – Tropical Depression Lowell dissipates. The convection gradually consolidated around a single circulation, developing into a tropical depression on October 8. The 2002 Pacific typhoon season was an active season, with many tropical cyclones affecting Japan and China. 0000 UTC (2 p.m. August 26 HST) – Tropical Storm Alika weakens into a tropical depression. 0000 UTC (2 p.m. October 25 HST) – Tropical Depression Three-C strengthens into a tropical storm and is named Huko.  The remnant low dissipated the next day. On August 2, a tropical depression formed off the northwest coast of Luzon and moved west-northwestward. With a ridge to the north, the depression tracked generally westward for several days, intensifying into Tropical Storm Pongsona on December 3.  Increasing shear weakened the convection, and Bavi became extratropical on October 13. 1800 UTC (5 a.m. PDT) – Hurricane Hernan strengthens into a major hurricane. , After a rather lengthy lull punctuated by only Tropical Depression Seven-E, a tropical wave formed Tropical Depression Eight-E on August 21.  In Fuzhou in Fujian Province, thunderstorms related to Hagupit flooded hundreds of houses. Tropical depressions that enter or form in the Philippine area of responsibility are assigned a name by the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), which can result in the same storm having two names; in these cases both storm names are given below, with the PAGASA name in parentheses. 0600 UTC (11 p.m. PDT) – Hurricane Alma weakens into a category 1 hurricane. At that point, the cyclone encountered cooler waters, which caused it to weaken slowly, weakening to a depression on August 30. When it developed at 1.5° North, it earned the record for the storm that developed closest to the equator, breaking the record of Typhoon Sarah in 1956. 0000 UTC (2 p.m. August 26 HST) – Tropical Depression Two-C forms about 1000 miles (1850 km) southwest of the Hawaiian Islands. A total of 15 of the 26 storms became typhoons, a slightly higher than normal proportion. The system moved northwestward due to a nearby extratropical storm, which later caused the depression to also become extratropical about 650 km (405 mi) west-southwest of Wake Atoll. , High rainfall from Kammuri affected large portions of China, particularly in Guangdong province where it moved ashore. The next day, Changmi attained peak winds of 85 km/h (50 mph).  The group raised the number of predicted storms in April to 29.6, and again in early May to 30.5.

Every month had tropical activity, with most storms forming from July through October.  Noguri injured one person, damaged one house, and caused about $4 million (¥504 million JPY) in agricultural damage. The final typhoon of the season was Typhoon Pongsona, which was one of the costliest storms on record in Guam; it did damage worth $700 million on the island before dissipating on December 11. Totals were highest in southern Guam, peaking at 536 mm (21.1 in). On neighboring Rota, Pongsona damaged 460 houses and destroyed 114, causing an additional $30 million in damage. 2002 Pacific typhoon season is a featured article; it (or a previous version of it) has been identified as one of the best articles produced by the Wikipedia community.Even so, if you can update or improve it, please do so. Two central pacific storms, Hurricane Ele 02C and Hurricane Huko 03C, crossed into this basin.  Late on September 21, the JMA upgraded the depression to Tropical Storm Changmi to the south of Japan.  However, the JTWC noted that the system was absorbing dry air and becoming extratropical, and thus did not issue warnings on the storm. , A tropical disturbance organized within the monsoon trough in early October near the FSM. When the cycle ended, the cyclone was over cooler water and unsteadily weakened. 1800 UTC (5 a.m. PDT) – Hurricane Alma weakens into a category 2 hurricane. Elida rapidly deepened, developing a pinhole eye, and becoming a hurricane on July 24 and further reaching major hurricane intensity six hours later. , In the central Pacific Ocean, a tropical depression developed in the monsoon trough on October 24 to the south of Hawaii. The next day, Boris degenerated into a remnant low.  On January 10, the JMA classified the system as a tropical depression, the same day that the JTWC initiated advisories on Tropical Depression 01W and PAGASA classified it as "Agaton". In 2002, the JTWC began experimenting with five-day forecasts.
