Rosie made a landfall as a Category 1 typhoon at Shikoku, Japan on July 26. NEXRAD imagery from Guam indicated the eye wall cloud of Keith never touched land as it threaded the narrow channel between these two islands. Rosie moved northward and began to weaken. [24], Originating from a tropical disturbance over the South China Sea on August 19, Zita tracked westward as it quickly strengthened within a region of light wind shear, attaining winds of 140 km/h (85 mph) as it made landfall along the Leizhou Peninsula early on August 22. Interaction with a large and powerful extratropical cyclone left the storm moving erratically, and on January 22 Hannah weakened to tropical depression status. Typhoon Paka, known in the Philippines as Typhoon Rubing, was the last tropical cyclone of the 1997 Pacific hurricane and typhoon season, and was among the strongest Pacific typhoons in the month of December.

BANGKOK — The Philippines was braced for the worst. The most severe damage occurred on Anatahan where 37 homes were destroyed. [22], From July 31 to August 6, Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration tracked the storm, and named it Huling. Intensification became more rapid as conditions became more favorable, and Winnie reached typhoon strength on the 10th. Later that day, Oliwa crossed the International Date Line,[32] and continued to slowly strengthen to become a typhoon on September 8. [37] The highest rainfall total was recorded in Felida, Washington at 1.3 in (33 mm). Based on satellite imagery estimates, the Joint Typhoon Warning Center upgraded it to Tropical Storm Hannah six hours after first forming. [1] These dates conventionally delimit the period of each year when most tropical cyclones form in the northwestern Pacific Ocean. Would you like Wikipedia to always look as professional and up-to-date? impact of these storms in the Philippines have largely focused on specific aspects, rather than the economy as a whole. This is the same list used for the 1993 season. The 1997 Pacific typhoon season was a record-breaking season featuring 11 tropical cyclones reaching super typhoon intensity, tying the record with 1965 with the most violent tropical cyclones globally. [41], Typhoon Joan caused significant damage throughout the Marshall Islands. Should the list of names for a given year prove to be insufficient, names are taken from an auxiliary list, the first 10 of which are published each year before the season starts.

Typhoon Linda, after moving through the Philippines and the South China Sea, hit the Malay Peninsula on November 3. The 1997 Pacific typhoon season has no official bounds; it ran year-round in 1997, but most tropical cyclones tend to form in the northwestern Pacific Ocean between May and November. In late May, an area of convection developed near the Marshall Islands, and rapidly became a low pressure area. [47], From November 12–16, Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration tracked the storm, and named it Pining. It drifted west-northwestward, and on April 21 separated from the westerly wind system. On August 25, a low pressure area developed in the South China sea, west of the Philippines, associated with the dissipating convection of Tropical Storm Zita. However, Typhoon Amber soon started to move north, just a little farther from Cass, but was just enough for Cass to strengthen into a Tropical Storm. It was the worst typhoon to strike the area in 100 years. [36], The remnants of Typhoon Ginger brought strong winds and heavy rain to the Western United States. On June 1, the low pressure area organized into a tropical depression. Minimal convection was associated with the system and only light winds were recorded. This was due to the El Niño of 1997–1998, which contributed to the record amounts of not only super typhoons but also tropical storms in the Western and Eastern Pacific. The tables also provide an overview of a systems intensity, duration, land areas affected and any deaths or damages associated with the system. The next day it crossed over Guam, and on December 18, Paka reached a peak of 185 mph winds. The depression slowly intensified and was upgraded to a Tropical Storm early on May 8 and was named Kelly.

Isa very gradually intensified, and on April 20 the typhoon reached peak 1-min winds of 270 km/h (165 mph), as reported by the Joint Typhoon Warning Center; Japan Meteorological Agency reported maximum 10-min winds of 155 km/h (100 mph). The season was unusual in the number of super typhoons that occurred in the basin, with eleven typhoons reaching winds of at least 135 knots.

Late on October 3, Hank weakened to a tropical depression and was initially thought to have made landfall; however, satellite analysis showed that the center did not cross land until October 5, shortly before dissipating.

The low strengthened as it became more organized over the next two days. By the time the TCFA was issued, Hank reached its peak intensity with winds of 75 km/h (45 mph) before succumbing to strong wind shear. Ella originated in the Central Pacific, becoming Tropical Depression 23W on September 20 according to the JTWC, then a tropical storm later that day. While passing near Guam, the disturbance was designated a tropical depression. For example, Blanc and Strobl (2016) find that typhoons have caused losses in rice production of about 12.5 million tons since 2001, while Anttila-Hughes and Hsiang (2013) find that infant mortality rises by 13% after a typhoon. This can often result in the same storm having two names. It turned to the northeast, and dissipated on September 17. Soon after, the eye became ragged and large, with an outer eyewall reaching 200 miles in diameter. PAGASA assigns names to tropical depressions that form within their area of responsibility and any tropical cyclone that might move into their area of responsibility. Two days later, Winnie became the 4th Super Typhoon of the season with peak winds of 160 mph. At 0400 UTC on April 22, the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) issued a Tropical Cyclone Formation Alert on the system, and two hours later the JTWC issued the first warning on Tropical Storm Jimmy about 1360 km (845 mi) southeast of Guam. [35], During this period, the storm intensified into a Category 5 super typhoon, with winds reaching 265 km/h (165 mph) by 0000 UTC on September 27.
