On October 1, a persistent area of low pressure just east of the Philippines developed into Tropical Depression 19W. It started to recurve near Chichi-jima, and never affected major land areas. It weakened further, upwelling itself. A tornado spawned by the typhoon caused a train derailment in Nobeoka, Miyazaki, Japan which caused no fatalities. The 2006 Pacific typhoon season was a below-average season that produced a total of 23 named storms, 15 typhoons, and six super typhoons. [3] By May 5, Tropical Storm Risk issued their second forecast for the season, raising their numbers to 29 tropical storms, 19 typhoons and 9 intense typhoons, with an ACE of 326. [1], In its formative stages, Chanchu was located in an environment generally favorable for intensification. [26] Prapiroon made landfall at 7:20 p.m. CST on August 3. 5 www.filipinostar.org What seemed to be just a matter of eating with a “fork and spoon” caused world-wide stir among Filipinos around the world. Wukong then stalled over Kyūshū, before starting to jog to the north-northwest. Damage was heaviest in Shantou where it moved ashore, with flooding covering roads and entering hundreds of homes. Signal no. Category 4 Super Typhoon. After issuing a Tropical Cyclone Formation Alert earlier, the Joint Typhoon Warning Center issued its first warning on Tropical Depression 18W. [57] The head of the Vietnam Institute of Meteorology, Hydrology and Environment resigned two weeks after Chanchu killed many fishermen because of inadequate warnings. Rumbia slowly began to intensify while moving to the northwest, but on October 6 its low-level circulation became fully exposed, and the JTWC issued a final warning. Soon after, the depression entered the area of responsibility of PAGASA, who named it Seniang. The storm's name was Caloy, though it was called Chanchu outside the Philippines. [17] Within a few years after the typhoon, the meteorological agency began issuing more accurate and timely forecasts. [38], As Bopha approached the island on August 8, the meteorological agency in Taiwan issued land and sea warnings for most of the region. Rainfall in the country spread across Guangdong, Fujian, Jiangxi, and Zhejiang,[35] and Chanchu became the earliest typhoon to affect Shanghai in 80 years. Aftermath of Typhoon Caloy. On August 13, a tropical depression formed south of Naha, Okinawa, and was named Katring by PAGASA and Sonamu by JMA.

[17] At one point, Chanchu was forecast to become a strong typhoon and make landfall near Hong Kong. On August 27, Hurricane Ioke, which had formed in the Central Pacific, crossed the International Date Line and entered the Japan Meteorological Agency's Area of Responsibility at around 6 a.m. UTC, keeping its name while being reclassified as Typhoon Ioke. Therefore, they raised the number of intense typhoons to 10, and their ACE to 349. [96] The other two systems were also monitored very briefly by the JMA during October 22. The Joint Typhoon Warning Center initiated warnings on Tropical Depression 26W the next day, despite having not issued a Tropical Cyclone Formation Alert. On the morning of December 7, both the JTWC and Japan Meteorological Agency-RSMC Tokyo reported that a tropical depression had formed. The typhoon dropped heavy rainfall in the Philippines. [81] The worst-affected areas were Segamat and Kota Tinggi, where both towns were totally inaccessible by land after all main roads leading to those towns were all flooded. [24] Crop damage totaled NT$158.88 million (NTD, US$5 million). [13] High winds left widespread power outages, particularly in Mindoro, Batangas, and across the Bicol Region. The system rapidly weakened over land, and the JMA downgraded it to a tropical storm. The Philippines got hit by a total of six typhoons, which saw the highest number since 1974. [17] Though Chanchu didn't made landfall over in Vietnam, several ships sunk and were lost. The depression made landfall at Guangdong at 5:55 a.m. CST on August 25 and dissipated later that morning. [15] PAGASA issued a storm signal number 2 for several provinces along Chanchu's path, as well as storm signal number 1 for other areas, largely forecasting for rainfall and gusty winds.

Saomai was responsible for at least 458 deaths, mostly in China, and $2.5 billion (2006 USD) in damage. Nine hours later, the JTWC upgraded Tropical Depression 08W to a tropical storm, three hours before the JMA named it Saomai. Kaemi made landfall in Jinjiang, Fujian at 3:50 p.m. CST on July 25 as a minimal typhoon. [43] A storm surge of 0.48 m (1.6 ft) was recorded in Tai Po Kau on August 8.[44].

The 2006 Pacific typhoon season had no official bounds; it ran year-round in 2006, but most tropical cyclones tend to form in the northwestern Pacific Ocean between May and November. Strong waves and currents created by typhoons can break apart reefs and smother them in sand and debris. [11] Around 1200 UTC on October 10, the JTWC upgraded Soulik to a typhoon,[54] and the JMA followed suit late on October 12. Despite moving through the archipelago, Chanchu intensified slightly within the Sibuyan Sea, striking Mindoro on May 12 with 1 minute winds of 160 km/h (100 mph), according to the JTWC. Around the time Dr. Haorau classified it a tropical storm, the JTWC issued a Tropical Cyclone Formation Alert and their satellite intensity estimates reached T2.5, indicating a minimal tropical storm. [39] Although the storm was forecast to directly impact the island, all businesses remained open and schools were not closed. Rail and boat transport was stopped between Guangdong and Hainan across the Qiongzhou Strait due to the typhoon. [1] With decreased outflow and stronger wind shear, Chanchu began slowly weakening. Bopha unexpectedly restrengthened into a severe tropical storm at 3 a.m. UTC August 8, before weakening back to a tropical storm at 12 p.m. UTC. [21], While passing east of Hong Kong, the outer rainbands of Chanchu dropped 43.5 mm (1.71 in) of rainfall at Sha Tin.

Residents were advised to remain indoors, and workers reinforced billboards in anticipation of the strong winds. [11] On October 8, the JMA began monitoring the system as a tropical depression, upgrading it to Tropical Storm Soulik the next day,[53] while the JTWC classified it as Tropical Depression 21W. The depression weakened as it crossed over northern Samar Island and southern Luzon. [60], This article is about the 2006 typhoon. PAGASA named this storm late on August 5 as it was forecast to enhance the southwest monsoon and bring rains to the Philippines. The depression slowly moved westward toward the Philippines, but wind shear from Typhoon Soulik prevented any intensification. [53] Another ridge west of Soulik turned the storm northward, and the influence of both ridges caused Soulik to become nearly stationary about 100 km (65 mi) south-southwest of Iwo Jima. [50] Residents and industries in Vietnam raised ₫360 million (VND, US$36,000)[nb 6] for the families of the deceased fishermen, as well as providing 1 ton of rice.

As it traveled in an erratic northwestward direction, it slowly became better organized. [12], On March 4, a tropical depression formed out of a wave close to the equator southeast of Palau. It weakened under heavy vertical wind shear and the JTWC issued its final advisory on Tropical Depression 17W before landfall in Vietnam. The JMA downgraded it to a severe tropical storm 04W by the JTWC designated it as a depression into tropical.
