It moved generally northwestward due to a ridge to the north, quickly intensifying into Tropical Storm Phanfone by August 12. , Heavy rains from the depression affected the southern Philippines, causing flash flooding and landslides. The other time this happened since 1966 was in the 1975 season. The remnant dissipated over the open ocean about 535 mi (861 km) west of Los Angeles.  That day, the JMA estimated peak winds of 100 km/h (65 mph). Tropical depressions in this basin have the "W" suffix added to their number when classified by the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC). , In early June, a disturbance within the monsoon trough persisted in the South China Sea to the east of Vietnam. 1200 UTC (5 a.m. PDT) – Tropical Depression Alma dissipates.  The JMA only estimated peak 10-minute winds of 110 km/h (70 mph), making it a severe tropical storm.  The tropical cyclone dropped to a depression and degenerated into a non-convective swirl of clouds on August 28.  The storm crossed the country, killing three others and leaving $9.5 million in damage. The season began early with the first storm, Tapah, developing on January 10, east of the Philippines. 1800 UTC (5 a.m. PDT) – Tropical Depression Douglas degenerates into a remnant low pressure area. , Boris dumped heavy rains on sections of the Mexican coast. In Chuuk, a state in the FSM, the highest 24-hour precipitation total was 506 mm (19.9 in), which was greater than the average monthly total. It slowly strengthened into the first tropical storm of the season two days later. , After affecting Yap, Mitag turned to the northwest and later to the north due to an approaching trough. 1800 UTC (5 a.m. PDT) – Tropical Storm Boris weakens into a tropical depression. 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. Revised version of the 2002 Atlantic hurricane season animation, replacing the old version that was uploaded in 2011. Pres. , An eastern extension of the monsoon trough southwest of Hawaii organized into Tropical Depression Two-C on August 27 and strengthened into Tropical Storm Ele six hours later. The rains forced 2,400 people to evacuate. not related to ongoing real Pacific typhoon season. Initially taking a westward track, the depression strengthened into Tropical Storm Fausto on August 22.  Convection and outflow increased the next day, and the system moved slowly westward due to a ridge over Japan. Storms that form east of the date line and north of the equator are called hurricanes; see 2002 Pacific hurricane season. Storms entering from the Central Pacific only include their information while in the western Pacific, and are noted with an asterisk *. 2002 Central Pacific Full Season Tropical Cyclone Report – PDF If you have trouble viewing linked files, obtain a free viewer for the file format: Adobe Acrobat (pdf)  Airline flights were canceled throughout the region due to the storm, and some schools and offices were closed. Every month had tropical activity, with most storms forming from July through October. After contributing to the dissipation of Alika, Ele continued intensifying.  The trough that caused the typhoon's acceleration also caused the storm to lose tropical characteristics, and dry air gradually became entrained in the circulation. [nb 4], A tropical depression developed on August 10 east of the Philippines. 1200 TC (5 a.m. PDT) – Tropical Depression Ten-E strengthens into a tropical storm and is named Hernan. The hurricane began to weaken thereafter, and was a minimal tropical storm by the time it entered the Central Pacific Hurricane Center's area of responsibility on August 27.  These dates conventionally delimit the period of each year when most tropical cyclones form in the northwestern Pacific Ocean. Soon after, it crossed into the western Pacific and briefly intensified into Tropical Storm Kalmaegi.  Late on September 21, the JMA upgraded the depression to Tropical Storm Changmi to the south of Japan. , Before striking Japan, Higos produced strong winds in the Northern Marianas Islands while passing to their north. 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 most notable storm this year was Hurricane Kenna, which reached Category 5 on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale.It made landfall near Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico, on October 25.It killed four people and was one of the most powerful hurricanes to ever strike the western coast of Mexico. , A tropical wave that had reached the Eastern Pacific from Africa was first spotted on July 23. Julio and Kenna caused the only two landfalls this year. 1800 UTC (5 a.m. PDT) – Hurricane Kenna strengthens into a category 5 hurricane.  High rains also affected southeastern China, and later Okinawa. If a tropical cyclone enters the Central Pacific basin from the Western Pacific basin (west of 180°), it will retain the name assigned to it by the Japan Meteorological Agency. The JTWC initiated advisories on Tropical Depression 17W at 06:00 UTC on August 5, describing the system as a "midget cyclone". , Fausto's regeneration north of Hawaii was unusual but not unprecedented. On November 3, Huko crossed the International Date Line into the western Pacific. It dissipated on October 19.  On May 21, Hagibis became extratropical to the east of Japan after having weakened below typhoon intensity. It was forecast to become a tropical storm and pass close to the peninsula.  The weakening briefly stopped after Douglas went through an eyewall replacement cycle, but Douglas was downgraded to a tropical storm late on July 24 as the storm only had a small area of deep convection left. , On October 25, an organized area of convection persisted southeast of Wake Island. Typhoon Pongsona was the last typhoon of the 2002 Pacific typhoon season, and was the second costliest United States disaster in 2002, only behind Hurricane Lili. It moved generally west-northwestward, intensifying into Tropical Storm Huko on October 26.  Owing to strong wind shear, the system never intensified, and the JMA discontinued advisories on March 23 after the system reached the South China Sea. Alma then turned north, moving near the edge of a subtropical ridge over Mexico. , During most of the year, sea surface temperatures were above normal near the equator, and were highest around 160° E from January to July, and in November. This is also just a hypothetical live season which exclusive at Philippine Area of Responsibility, the place where local weather center tracks typhoons. It passed over the Japanese island of Miyako-jima and also produced strong winds in Okinawa.  Three people were electrocuted, and flash flooding killed at least two people. Early on July 19, the depression struck Samar Island in the Philippines, and continued northwestward through the archipelago. Damage totaled $700 million, making it one of the five costliest storms on Guam. Shear increased, and the cyclone weakened to a depression on June 10. Moderate shear dispersed the thunderstorms, although the system gradually organized. 0000 UTC (5 p.m. PDT) – Tropical Storm Fausto weakens into a tropical depression as it crosses into the Central Pacific.  Continuing to the northeast, Maysak moved into the central Pacific Ocean on October 30, by which time it had become extratropical. Other tropical cyclones have strengthened north of Hawaii, but the actual formation of one is rare.  Names that were not assigned are marked in gray. However, the trough soon increased wind shear and restricted outflow, which caused quick weakening.  A ridge located over the Philippines caused the system to track northeastward. The 2007 Pacific typhoon season was a below average season which featured 24 named storms, fourteen typhoons, and five super typhoons. Alma reached Category 3 intensity on May 30. It turned to the west-northwest and stayed on that path for the next six days. , On July 16, an area of convection increased northwest of Palau with a weak circulation. Alma then turned north, moving near the edge of a subtropical ridgeover Mexico. It made landfall near Puerto Vallarta, located in the Mexican state of Jalisco, on October 25. , Typhoon Mitag developed from a trough near the equator on February 25 near the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM). 1800 UTC (5 a.m. PDT) – Hurricane Kenna weakens into a category 3 hurricane. With minimal wind shear, it quickly developed a circulation, becoming a tropical depression on October 26. 1200 UTC (5 a.m. PDT) – Hurricane Hernan strengthens into a category 5 hurricane.  The rains caused two landslides and resulted in delays to bus and train systems, as well as cancellations to ferry and airline routes.  In Fuzhou in Fujian Province, thunderstorms related to Hagupit flooded hundreds of houses. 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. 1200 UTC (5 a.m. PDT) – Hurricane Fausto becomes a category 2 hurricane.  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.  Several days later, the remnants affected northern California. Wind shear also increased, and Iselle consequently fell apart on satellite imagery.  Soon after the circulation dissipated, it dropped heavy rainfall across the region. Alika dissipated the next day, having never threatened land. , A tropical wave generated into Tropical Depression Six-E on July 23.  On June 4, a tropical depression developed just off the east coast of Hainan, with a broad circulation and scattered convection. Due to increasing wind shear, convection gradually weakened, and the JMA downgraded Tapah to a tropical depression on January 13; however, other agencies maintained the system as a tropical storm. The remnants of Ele continued to the northeast until moving back into the central Pacific as an extratropical storm on September 11 and dissipating on September 13. 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. 0000 UTC (5 p.m. PDT) – Tropical Depression Thirteen-E forms 175 miles (325 km) southwest of Acapulco, Mexico. All storms named by the JMA, as well as other notable tropical cyclones, have complete sections below. 0600 UTC (11 p.m. PDT) – Tropical Depression Four-E strengthens into Tropical Storm Cristina. Agriculture in the affected area was disrupted. Deaths in parentheses are additional and indirect (an example of an indirect death would be a traffic accident), but were still related to that storm. , In the middle of November, an area of thunderstorms developed southwest of Chuuk in the FSM within the monsoon trough. However, it did send heavy waves along the shores of Mexico. It was able to maintain much of its intensity due to warm air and instability from a nearby cold front. No damage or casualties were reported in association with this tropical cyclone.

[nb 4], Typhoon Higos developed on September 25 east of the Northern Marianas Islands.  The flooding was worst in Luzon, where 85 people were killed.  It gradually weakened due to cooler waters and increasing wind shear, and on September 6 Ele deteriorated below typhoon status. Hernan then degenerated into a remnant low on September 6. 0000 UTC (5 p.m. PDT) – Tropical Depression Fourteen-E forms 325 miles (600 km) south of Acapulco, Mexico. For several days, Rusa moved to the northwest, eventually intensifying into a powerful typhoon.  Later, the remnants of Higos affected the Russian Far East, killing seven people in two shipwrecks near Primorsky Krai. Media in category "2002 Pacific typhoon season" The following 10 files are in this category, out of 10 total.

The JMA estimated peak 10-minute winds of 150 km/h (90 mph), and the JTWC estimated peak 1-minute winds of 215 km/h (135 mph). The rains flooded widespread areas of crop fields and resulted in landslides.  The JTWC initiated advisories on June 6, and despite the favorable conditions, the depression remained weak.  The day before, another depression formed near the International Date Line. Passing a short distance south of Kyushu, Fung-wong dissipated later that day. The 2002 Pacific typhoon season was an active season, with many tropical cyclones affecting Japan and China.  Other than the aforementioned regions, Hernan had no significant impact on land.  In all, Tropical Depression Juan killed 14 people and injured two others. 1800 UTC (5 a.m. PDT) – Tropical Depression Five-E strengthens into Tropical Storm Douglas. 1200 UTC (5 a.m. PDT) – Hurricane Elida weakens into a category 4 hurricane.

These dates delimit the time when most tropical cyclones form in this part of the Pacific Ocean. On November 2, a ridge caused the hurricane to accelerate, and the next day it crossed the International Date Line into the Western Pacific, becoming a typhoon. The 2002 Pacific hurricane season was an event in tropical cyclone meteorology. In Beihai, the storm destroyed 335 houses, resulting in $22 million in damage. The next day, Boris degenerated into a remnant low. By that time, it began moving to the northeast, and on September 10 it transitioned into an extratropical storm. 0600 UTC (11 p.m. PDT) – Tropical Depression Seven-E dissipates.  Damage on the island was estimated at $14.3 million,[nb 5] including $3.6 million in damage to Kadena Air Base. The remnants continued to the northeast and dissipated south of the Aleutian Islands on May 22. In June, Typhoon Chataan dropped heavy rainfall in the Federated States of Micronesia, killing 48 people and becoming the deadliest natural disaster in the state of Chuuk. Flooding and landslides from the storm severely damaged or destroyed 1,994 houses. , On March 15, the JTWC began monitoring a tropical disturbance, and four days later upgraded it to a tropical depression near Palau. No deaths were attributed to this storm. Despite the nearby presence of Alika, Ele developed rapidly and strengthened into a hurricane on August 28. 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?  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 low death toll is likely due to massive evacuations in San Blas, Nayarit, and elsewhere ahead of the hurricane.  The second, classified as Tropical Depression 27W by the JTWC, formed on October 17 about 1,220 km (760 mi) east-northeast of Saipan. Several meteorologists left the agency near the beginning of the year, although the new forecasters compensated for their inexperience by relying on the consensus of various forecast models.  Due to a ridge to the east, it moved generally northwestward and slowly intensified. 1200 UTC (5 a.m. PDT) – Hurricane Hernan strengthens into a category 2 hurricane. It was an event in the annual cycle of tropical cyclone formation, in which tropical cyclones form in the western Pacific Ocean.  It moved northwestward, strengthening into Tropical Storm Vongfong on August 18. 1800 UTC (5 a.m. PDT) – Tropical Depression Eleven-E weakens into a remnant low pressure area. Lowell's convection was disrupted, and its center of circulation became exposed. , An area of thunderstorms increased near the FSM on September 15 within the monsoon trough.  The remnants of Huko later reentered the basin, eventually affecting California. , Reclassified as a typhoon, Ele moved north-northwestward due to a weakness in the ridge to the north.  After affecting Japan, Fengshen weakened in the Yellow Sea to a tropical depression, before moving across China's Shandong Peninsula and dissipating on July 28.  Around its peak intensity, the eye of the typhoon moved over Guam and Rota.  In the Philippines, the storm killed 35 people and caused $3.3 million in damage, with 13,178 houses damaged or destroyed.  It formed on December 2, having originated as an area of convection to the east-southeast of Pohnpei in late November.  Moving to the west due to a ridge to the north, it slowly organized, forming into a tropical depression on September 9 in the South China Sea.  Another tropical depression formed on September 21 to the northeast of the Marshall Islands, but dissipated by the next day. The JMA issued forecasts and analyses every six hours starting at midnight UTC using numerical weather prediction (NWP) and a climatological tropical cyclone forecast model. They became Typhoon Ele and Typhoon Huko, keeping their original name and "C" suffix in their warnings by JTWC..  The storm produced a record wind gust there of 204 km/h (127 mph), and just south of the city, high waves destroyed several piers and a large boat. 4, "Monthly Global Tropical Cyclone Summary August 2002", "Monthly Global Tropical Cyclone Summary January 2002", "Monthly Global Tropical Cyclone Summary, March 2002", "Storm Data and Unusual Weather Phenomena with Late Reports and Corrections", "Monthly Global Tropical Cyclone Tracks March 2002", "Monthly Global Tropical Cyclone Summary May 2002", Pacific ENSO Update 3rd Quarter 2002-Vol. Elida had no direct impact on land. This is a table of all the storms that have formed in the 2002 Pacific hurricane season. The season was active, partly due to an El Niño, a meteorological weather phenomenon, that produces favorable conditions across the Pacific ocean, such as lower wind shear, and higher sea surface temperatures. 1800 UTC (5 a.m. PDT) – Tropical Depression Fausto regenerates about 430 miles (795 km) north of the Hawaiian Islands. 1200 UTC (5 a.m. PDT) – Hurricane Hernan weakens into a tropical storm.

Halong became extratropical on July 16 and dissipated the next day. 1800 UTC (5 a.m. PDT) – Hurricane Elida weakens into a category 2 hurricane. The 2002 Pacific hurricane season was an event in tropical cyclone meteorology.  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. Despite the shear, the depression strengthened into a tropical storm early on July 12 and was named Cristina. The proximity of Huko caused a gradual weakening in Lowell, and it dissipated on October 31. , Hagupit dropped heavy rainfall along the coast of China for several days, peaking at 344 mm (13.5 in) in Zhanjiang City.  Rusa also destroyed large areas of crops in the country, which was already affected by ongoing famine conditions. , After affecting Okinawa, Sinlaku threatened northern Taiwan, which had been affected by two deadly typhoons in the previous year.  Also of note was an unusual gap in storm formation during the first three weeks of August in this season, historically a prime period for tropical cyclone formation. Shortly afterwards, wind shear increased. , After a rather lengthy lull punctuated by only Tropical Depression Seven-E, a tropical wave formed Tropical Depression Eight-E on August 21. , An area of convection developed on September 8 to the northeast of Luzon.  Late on October 27, it strengthened into Tropical Storm Maysak. The system crossed the line shortly thereafter and quickly intensified into Tropical Storm Kalmaegi. Farmers required aid, and many fruit crops were destroyed.  It was briefly forecast to strengthen into a tropical storm.  The thunderstorms diminished from the circulation, and around 12:00 UTC on July 22, Kalmaegi dissipated about 30 hours after forming. A swirl of remnant clouds persisted for a few more days. Hurricanes Elida and Hernan also reached Category 5 intensity, but neither caused any damage. 1800 UTC (5 a.m. PDT) – Hurricane Alma weakens into a category 2 hurricane. Early the next day, it dissipated east of Japan.  Across Japan, the typhoon dropped torrential rainfall peaking at 902 mm (35.5 in) in Tokushima Prefecture. Despite being located in a hostile environment, it managed to organize into a tropical depression on November 14. 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.  It weakened while crossing Honshu, and shortly after striking Hokkaidō on October 2, Higos became extratropical. The storm moved west-northwestward due to a ridge to the north, and the system gradually became better organized. On July 18, the typhoon reached peak 10-minute winds of 185 km/h (115 mph), according to the JMA, making it the strongest storm of the season. 1200 UTC (5 a.m. PDT) – Tropical Depression Two-E forms 150 miles (280 km) west-southwest of. , Typhoon Pongsona was the last typhoon of the season, and was the second costliest disaster in 2002 in the United States and its territories. 0600 UTC (11 p.m. PDT) – Tropical Depression Iselle weakens into a remnant low pressure area.  High waves washed 25 boats ashore and killed one person along the coast. The remnant drifted east and then southeast before dissipating on June 12. At that point, the cyclone encountered cooler waters, which caused it to weaken slowly, weakening to a depression on August 30.  The floods damaged roads, railroads, and tunnels, and left power and water outages across the region.
