The scope of this article is limited to the Pacific Ocean, north of the equator and west of the international date line. Storms that form east of the date line and north of the equator are called hurricanes; see 2007 Pacific hurricane season. Tropical Storms formed in the entire West Pacific basin are assigned a name by the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA). Tropical depressions in this basin have the "W" suffix added to their Joint Typhoon Warning Center identifier. 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). This can result in the same storm having two names.

Storms

In storm information below, wind-speed advisories differ from the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) to the JMA as the JTWC uses the United States criteria of 1-minute mean to designate maximum sustained winds, while the JMA uses the 10-minute mean wind criteria to designate tropical cyclone maximum sustained winds. This difference generally results in JTWC maximum winds appearing higher than the maximum winds described by the JMA for the same cyclone.

On March 26, the JTWC identified a broad area of low pressure in the Western North Pacific. It moved west-northwestward over the next few days, slowly gaining organization. According to the Japan Meteorological Agency, it became a tropical depression on March 30. The next day, the Joint Typhoon Warning Center issued a Tropical Cyclone Formation Alert due to an increased consolidation of the low-level circulation of the system. The JTWC issued its first warning on Tropical Depression 01W late that evening local time [3]. As it continued to strengthen, the JTWC upgraded it to a tropical storm,[4] the first of the season. The JMA followed suit, and named the system Kong-rey.[5]The name was submitted by Cambodia, and refers to a character in a Khmer legend, which is also the name of a mountain.[6] Lowest pressure 960 hPa (mbar) Fatalities None reported Damage Unknown Areas affected Mariana Islands Part of the 2007 Pacific typhoon season Typhoon Kong-rey (international designation: 0701, JTWC designation: 01W) was a moderate typhoon that affected Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands in early April 2007. ...

Kong-rey continued to organize and intensified into a severe tropical storm early the next morning local time.[7] The JTWC then upgraded it to a typhoon on April 2.[8] As the system took a more poleward track towards the Northern Mariana Islands, the National Weather Service office in Guam noted that damaging winds were now not expected on the island. Elsewhere in the Marianas, preparations were made and flights were cancelled in anticipation of the typhoon. Kong-rey passed through the islands in the early hours of the morning on April 3 local time. The JMA upgraded Kong-rey to a typhoon later that afternoon,[9] as it developed an eye. It strengthened slightly further before encountering wind shear and colder sea surface temperatures and was downgraded back to a severe tropical storm on April 4. As Kong-rey accelerated towards the northeast, it began undergoing extratropical transition early on April 5 and the JTWC issued its final warning.[7] The JMA issued its final warning on the morning of April 6 after it had completed extratropical transition.[10] No casualties or major damage was reported. is the 92nd day of the year (93rd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

On May 15, a significant consolidation of organisation in a tropical disturbance located south-southeast of Guam led to Dvorak technique numbers equating to a windspeed of 45 kt from the Air Force Weather Agency. Later that day, the Japan Meteorological Agency designated the system a tropical depression, and the Joint Typhoon Warning Center issued a Tropical Cyclone Formation Alert.[11] The next day, the JMA began issuing full advisories on the tropical depression. It developed slowly, resulting in a reissuance of the TCFA later that day. In this second TCFA, the JTWC noted "an increasingly well-defined" low-level circulation centre.[12] The JTWC upgraded the system to Tropical Depression 02W at 1200 UTC, based on satellite intensity estimates and QuikSCAT.[13] The Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale is a scale classifying most Western Hemisphere tropical cyclones that exceed the intensities of tropical depressions and tropical storms, and thereby become hurricanes. ...

The JMA designated 02W as Tropical Storm Yutu early on May 17, as the system strengthened further. The name 'Yutu' was contributed by China, and refers to a rabbit in a Chinese fable.[6] The JTWC followed suit 3 hours later, upgrading the system to Tropical Storm 02W as it moved quickly westwards, heading for Yap. Tropical storm warnings and watches were put in place for most of the Yap State, but were later cancelled after Yutu passed through quickly. is the 137th day of the year (138th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

It then took a northwesterly turn, entered the PAGASA area of responsibility on May 18 as it reached severe tropical storm strength,[14] and was named "Amang". Later that day, the JTWC upgraded it to a typhoon, and identified a "distinct eye feature",[15] and the JMA upgraded the severe tropical storm to a typhoon at 1800 UTC as it continued to intensify. It began to recurve towards Iwo Jima, undergoing rapid intensification,[16] with "enhanced poleward outflow and low vertical wind shear".[17] It reached its peak on the evening of May 20, as a strong Category 4-equivalent typhoon, just short of becoming a super typhoon.

Despite moving into cooler waters, its strong poleward outflow helped it to maintain a high intensity, while carrying a 20 nautical mile-wide eye, on the early morning of May 21.[18] It then began to gradually weaken, passing over Okinotorishima and near Iwo Jima that day as it sped off to the northeast. Maximum winds on Iwo Jima occurred around 1500 UTC that day, with 66 kt (122 km/h, 76 mph) sustained gusting to 104 kt (193 km/h, 120 mph), when a minimum central pressure of 976 hPa was recorded.[19] It then started extratropical transition, and the JTWC issued its final warning on the morning of May 22.

An area of disturbed weather formed in the South China Sea on July 2 and gradually consolidated over the next two days as it moved west-northwestward. A Tropical Cyclone Formation Alert was issued by the Joint Typhoon Warning Center on the morning of July 4, and later that day the disturbance was upgraded straight to a tropical storm just south-east of Hainan Island. It made landfall on the island shortly after. China claimed that a tropical depression formed in the morning on July 2, made landfall in Hainan later that afternoon with maximum sustained winds of 15 m/s (55 km/h, 35 mph)[20] and deepened to 988hPa[21] before making its second landfall.

The Joint Typhoon Warning Center began to track an area of disturbed weather just north of the equator on July 4. The circulation centre and surrounding convection started to take shape, although the system was in a "marginal upper-level environment" with moderate vertical wind shear.[23][24] Surface pressure drops of less than 0.5 mb (hPa) were observed on July 6, as the system moved westward.[24] Early on July 7, the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) listed the system as a weak tropical depression. Hours later, the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) issued a Tropical Cyclone Formation Alert, as the system consolidated further with "deep convective banding" and improving upper-level conditions.[25] The Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale is a scale classifying most Western Hemisphere tropical cyclones that exceed the intensities of tropical depressions and tropical storms, and thereby become hurricanes. ...

The JTWC issued its first warning on Tropical Depression 04W later that day,[26] and forecast a gradual intensification, as weak to moderate wind shear and weak poleward outflow balanced the effect of high ocean heat content.[27] The JMA began issuing full tropical cyclone advisories on the tropical depression at the same time.[28] As the depression gained more organisation, it was upgraded to a tropical storm that night by the JTWC.[29] The JMA finally upgraded it to a tropical storm later that evening as the large system consolidated, naming it Man-yi.[30] The name "Man-yi" was contributed by Hong Kong, and is the Chinese name of a strait turned reservoir (the High Island Reservoir). Man-yi continued to organize and became a severe tropical storm on July 9, when downed electricity lines caused widespread power outages on Guam.[31] Tropical storm warnings and typhoon watches were put in place for most of Yap State at some point during the storm.

Moving over warmer waters, Man-yi underwent rapid deepening late on July 11 and early on July 12 as it churned towards Okinawa in Japan. The United States Military upgraded the Tropical Cyclone Condition of Readiness (TCCOR) levels for Kanto, Yokosuka, Sasebo and Okinawa on the afternoon of July 12 as Man-yi neared the islands.[33] Man-yi was upgraded twice to super-typhoon strength over the next day as it passed through the prefecture. The passage of Man-yi resulted in 37 injuries and widespread power outages in Okinawa.[34] The TCCOR level for Okinawa was downgraded to 1R (recovery) on July 13 while Kanto, Yokosuka and Sasebo's levels were all upgraded in anticipation of the typhoon.[35] Man-yi made brief landfall in Kagoshima Prefecture on Kyūshū early the next day before turning to the east and making brief landfalls in Kōchi Prefecture on Shikoku and in Wakayama Prefecture on Honshū.

Usagi passed between Pagan and Agrihan later on July 29,[42] and began to quickly strengthen. The JTWC upgraded it to a typhoon later that day, citing Dvorak technique numbers indicating an estimate of 65 knots (120 km/h, 75 mph) and a developing eye.[43] The system gradually turned toward the northwest, and the JMA upgraded it to a severe tropical storm early on July 30,[44] and then to a typhoon on July 31 as it passed to the south of Iwo Jima.[45] Usagi moved northwest over warm waters, reaching peak intensity on August 1 before weakening due to cooling sea surface temperatures and increasing wind shear as it approached Kyūshū. Usagi made landfall on August 2 near Nobeoka, Miyazaki as a rapidly weakening typhoon, and it was downgraded to a severe tropical storm shortly after. The system continued weakening rapidly as it moved across Kyūshū and Honshū, and the JMA downgraded it to a tropical storm later that day.[46] The Dvorak Technique (developed in 1974 by Vernon Dvorak) is a widely used system to estimate tropical cyclone intensity based solely on visible and infrared satellite images. ...

Duration August 4August 9
Intensity 65 kt (10-min), 975 hPa

A tropical disturbance developed southeast of Chuuk early on July 31. The system moved west-northwestward over the next several days with little change in organization. On August 4, however, organized convection quickly began to redevelop, and the Japan Meteorological Agency began monitoring it as a tropical depression. The system continued to strengthen, and the Joint Typhoon Warning Center issued a Tropical Cyclone Formation Alert on the system early the next day, noting that its environment was "strongly favorable for development".[48] The Japan Meteorological Agency designated the system Tropical Storm Pabuk shortly after.[49] The name "Pabuk" was submitted by Laos, and refers to a large freshwater fish in the Mekong River.[6] The JTWC designated the system Tropical Storm 07W at about the same time, and on August 5 PAGASA named the system Chedeng. As Pabuk continued to move to the northwest, it gained some organisation as it slowly developed outflow.[50] It was upgraded by the JMA to a severe tropical storm on August 6. Moving westwards towards Taiwan, an area of convection south of Pabuk separated and formed its own low-level circulation. Pabuk's upper-level outflow inhibited this new area of convection. Strengthening slightly, Pabuk was upgraded to a typhoon on the morning of August 7. The JTWC downgraded Pabuk to a tropical storm later that day, with the JMA downgrading Pabuk shortly before landfall. It made landfall in southern Taiwan around 1630 UTC according to Taiwan radar and crossed the southern tip of the Hengchun Peninsula in Pingtung County. The JTWC re-upgraded Pabuk to a typhoon at its next advisory, however, citing a small eye at landfall,[51] before downgrading it to a tropical storm again three hours later.[52] The Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale is a scale classifying most Western Hemisphere tropical cyclones that exceed the intensities of tropical depressions and tropical storms, and thereby become hurricanes. ...

After passing over Taiwan, Pabuk took aim at Hong Kong.[53] The Hong Kong Observatory and Macau's Meteorological and Geophysical Bureau both hoisted strong wind signal 3 on August 9 as the system passed to the south of Hong Kong. The JMA downgraded the storm to a tropical depression later that day and issued its final public advisory, with the JTWC following suit shortly after. The tropical depression then turned back to the east-northeast on August 10[54], forcing the HKO to re-issue signal 3. The HKO also warned that winds were expected to strengthen further locally, and that the Hong Kong Education Bureau had suspended all classes for the day.[55] The HKO upgraded Pabuk to a tropical storm[56] and subsequently issued the gale or storm warning signal 8 at 2:30 p.m. HKT (0630 UTC) later that day as Pabuk moved closer to the territory.[57] This was replaced by signal 3 later that night as Pabuk took another turn in direction and headed west inland into Guangdong. Early next morning, Pabuk resumed a northeasterly track, edging once again closer to the Pearl River Delta[58] before it weakened further and HKO cancelled all signals.[59] Hong Kong Observatory (Chinese: 香港天文台; Yale: hēung góng tīn màhn tòih, Jyutping: hoeng1 gong2 tin1 man4 toi4; Mandarin Pinyin: Xiānggǎng Tiānwén Tái), known as the Royal Observatory (Chinese: 皇家香港天文台) before 1997, is a department of the Government of the Hong Kong Special...

A tropical disturbance developed to the south of the developing Tropical Storm Pabuk on August 5, and was first mentioned by the Joint Typhoon Warning Center in its Significant Tropical Weather Outlook on August 6.[61] The Japan Meteorological Agency designated it a tropical depression later that night.[62] By the next day, although still attached to Pabuk and being inhibited by shearing from an upper-level outflow anticyclone over Pabuk,[63] the JTWC issued a Tropical Cyclone Formation Alert.[64] As Pabuk moved away, the depression gradually strengthened, and the JMA designated it Tropical Storm Wutip early on August 8.[65] The name Wutip was submitted by Macau, and means butterfly.[6] It struggled against land interaction, however, and did not strengthen considerably, remaining poorly organised. The storm quickly weakened, and the JMA issued its last advisory on Wutip early on August 9, downgrading it to a tropical depression. The JTWC issued its last advisory shortly after.

An area of disturbed weather developed west of the Northern Mariana Islands on August 11. Early the next day, the JMA began issuing advisories on the depression,[67] and the JTWC followed suit, designating it Tropical Depression 09W.[68] Twelve hours later, the JTWC upgraded the tropical depression to a tropical storm[69] based on Dvorak technique satellite intensity estimates and[70] the storm exhibiting tightly-curved convective bands. An upper-level low helped to reduce wind shear that had been affecting the storm.[70] The JTWC also warned of the possibility of rapid intensification.[70] The JMA upgraded the depression to a tropical storm later that day[71] and named it Sepat, a name contributed by Malaysia referring to a freshwater fish species.[6] The Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale is a scale classifying most Western Hemisphere tropical cyclones that exceed the intensities of tropical depressions and tropical storms, and thereby become hurricanes. ...

By early on August 13, Sepat had moved into PAGASA's area of responsibility and attained the local name "Egay". The JMA upgraded Sepat to a severe tropical storm shortly after.[72] Late that night, Sepat underwent rapid intensification as expected, and was upgraded by the JTWC to a super typhoon the next morning.[73] Sepat slowed in forward speed and took a turn from a west-southwest motion to a more poleward one.[74] Continuing to intensify,[75] Sepat reached a peak minimum central pressure of 910 hPa on the morning of August 16.[76] High ocean heat content and good equatorward outflow allowed Sepat to maintain its intensity, but an eyewall replacement cycle began later that night, resulting in weakening.[77] It made landfall in eastern Taiwan between Taitung and Hualien on the morning of August 18 local time at around 5 a.m. (2100 UTC August 17)[78] and weakened to a minimal typhoon.[79] After crossing the island, Sepat held on to minimal typhoon intensity before weakening to a severe tropical storm that night.[80] It made a second landfall, in mainland China, about 24 hours after landfall on Taiwan and was downgraded to a tropical storm the next morning.

An area of disturbed weather developed northwest of Guam on September 10 and moved northwestward, slowly increasing in organisation. The Japan Meteorological Agency began monitoring the system as a tropical depression the next day. The depression continued to organise and strengthen, and the Joint Typhoon Warning Center issued a Tropical Cyclone Formation Alert on it during the afternoon of September 12, and began issuing advisories on Tropical Depression 12W an hour later. The JMA followed suit early on September 13 and initiated advisories on the system; PAGASA named the system Falcon shortly after. The depression continued to intensify, and the JMA upgraded it to Tropical Storm Nari later that morning. The storm then underwent rapid intensification that afternoon and evening, strengthening from a tropical depression to a typhoon in just 18 hours. The JMA upgraded Nari to a severe tropical storm late that afternoon, and by late that evening, Nari was upgraded to a typhoon. Nari reached its peak on September 14th, and began weakening soon afterwards. It turned extratropical right after landfall in South Korea at tropical storm strength. at least 20 people have been killed or are missing due to the flooding caused by Nari. Rainfall totals reached a record 590mm in Jeju, South Korea. The name Nari was submitted by South Korea, and means lily.[6] The Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale is a scale classifying most Western Hemisphere tropical cyclones that exceed the intensities of tropical depressions and tropical storms, and thereby become hurricanes. ...

This area gradually became better organised, and a TCFA was issued late on September 14.[103] The JMA upgraded the storm to a tropical depression on September 15,[104] and the JTWC soon followed suit with Tropical Depression 13W.[105] PAGASA named the storm "Goring" later that day. On September 16, the storm had gained enough organisation to be designated as a tropical storm.[106] On September 17, the storm underwent rapid intensification and quickly strengthened into a typhoon. It continued to strengthen rapidly and was upgraded by the JTWC to a super typhoon early on September 18. In the early hours, local time, of September 19, Wipha slammed into Fuding, near the Fujian-Zhejiang provincial border in China. However, before the storm made landfall it weakened slightly, becoming a Category 3-equivalent typhoon.

Wipha originally threatened to pass over Shanghai, which would have made it the most destructive Chinese typhoon in over a decade. However, it veered to the south, making a direct impact unlikely. Throughout the Shanghai and Fujian-Zhejiang area, nearly 2 million persons evacuated, including 1.5 million in Zhejiang and 291 thousand from low-lying areas, due to the threat from Wipha.

In late September, a new system formed east of the Philippines. PAGASA declared it a tropical depression (Ineng) early on October 1, and the JMA and JTWC soon followed. It was upgraded to a tropical storm early on October 2, named Krosa. Rapid intensification took place on October 2 and it was upgraded to a typhoon by the JTWC by midday. As it intensified, it gained a wide, ragged eye and began to track to the west, becoming a typhoon by the JMA early on October 3. It continued to rapidly intensify that day before leveling off as a Category 4-equivalent typhoon on October 4. Fluctuations in intensity soon followed as Krosa approached Taiwan, as the JMA upgraded it to 105 kt and the JTWC to a super typhoon early on October 5. It slowly weakened afterward before making landfall in northeastern Taiwan on October 6. At least 17 people were reported injured there, as the typhoon headed for China.

An area of disturbed weather developed in the South China Sea on July 31. Despite strong wind shear in the area, the system gradually increased in organization as it remained nearly stationary, and the Joint Typhoon Warning Center issued a Tropical Cyclone Formation Alert on the system on August 2.[159] The JTWC classified the system as Tropical Depression 06W shortly after,[160] with the JMA designating it a tropical depression at the same time.[161] Despite strong wind shear in the area, the system slowly intensified as it meandered along the coast of Vietnam, and the JTWC upgraded it to a tropical storm early on August 4.[162] However, later that day, the JTWC downgraded the storm back to a depression due to the loss of most of the convection.[163] Cyclone Catarina, a rare South Atlantic tropical cyclone viewed from the International Space Station on March 26, 2004 Hurricane and Typhoon redirect here. ...

Storm names

See also: Lists of tropical cyclone names and Tropical cyclone naming

Western North Pacific tropical cyclones are named by the RSMC Tokyo-Typhoon Center of the Japan Meteorological Agency. Unlike other basins, where storms are named based on annual lists, tropical cyclones in this basin are named based on the following revolving list. Names were contributed by 13 members of the ESCAP/WMO Typhoon Committee, except for Singapore. The 13 nations or territories, along with Micronesia, each submitted 10 names, which are used in alphabetical order by the English name of the country. Names marked with an asterisk are set for retirement due to its effects in the 2006 season. Otherwise, the list is the same one used for the 2006 Pacific typhoon season except for Pakhar, Noksuri and Haikui, which replaced Matsa, Nabi, and Longwang.[169] The first storm of the season was named Kong-rey Due to their long-term persistence, and the need for a unique identifier in issuing forecasts and warnings, tropical cyclones and subtropical cyclones are given names. ...
