Three perished and a total of NT$22 million (1994 dollars), or $835,500 (1994 USD),[18] of damage occurred within Taiwan. Tropical storms that formed west of the date line were assigned a name by the Joint Typhoon Warning Center. The disturbance organized into Tropical Depression 23W on September 3. Zelda continued its slow intensification rate, and as it turned more westward, it became a typhoon on the 1st. Names that were not assigned/going to use are marked in gray. A weak wind of 11 knots (20 km/h) associated with the dissipating system was recorded at Chichi-jima on October 25. [9] The peak winds measured at Yonaguni in association with Typhoon Owen were 32.4 kilometres per hour (17.5 kn). Shortly after, SSM/I imagery indicated the presence of a well-defined low-level circulation centre, and visible and infrared satellite images indicated an increase in organisation of the system and a consolidation of deep convection near the centre. [7] Teresa continued moving westward at a constant pace and intensified into a typhoon on October 19, reaching its peak intensity of 80 knots (150 km/h) that same day. It headed westward, slowly strengthening to a tropical storm on the 2nd and a typhoon on the 3rd. A new, weak low-level circulation started to develop within that area, several kilometers east of Visayas, Philippines on September 12. five most active Pacific hurricane seasons, Out of basin between August 28-September 8, "Eastern North Pacific Tracks File 1949–2007", "Background Information: East Pacific Hurricane Season", "Previous Tropical Systems in the Central Pacific", "2006 Tropical Cyclones Central North Pacific", "The 1997 Central Pacific Tropical Cyclone Season", "The 1994 Central Pacific Tropical Cyclone Season", "Monthly Global Tropical Cyclone Summary April 2004", "NOAA: 2008 Eastern Pacific Hurricane Season Outlook", "Historical East Pacific Seasonal Activity", "NOAA: 2018 Eastern Pacific Hurricane Season Outlook", "Subject: E6) Which tropical cyclone lasted the longest? Earlier in the season, the combined effects of two tropical storms —Russ and Sharon —caused flooding in China that killed over 1,400. During the morning of August 3, Caitlin became a storm tropical storm as it made landfall in Hualien county. Westerly upper level shear from Walt was slowing development, and Zeke finally achieved tropical storm status early on July 20. [7][24], Vanessa made an anti-clockwise loop and then started to move northeastward under the steering influence of a monsoon flow and Typhoon Tim's circulation, reaching a peak intensity of 45 knots (83 km/h) west of Luzon before it was absorbed by the larger typhoon. The final warning was issued early on January 6 after the system lost all its deep convection. The next day, it started to weaken due to land reaction. Acceleration to the north-northeast began on September 28, and by late on September 29, Orchid made landfall in Japan as a typhoon, crossing Honshu and western Hokkaido. Green Island experienced gusts of typhoon force for 21 hours as the cyclone's center moved to its north. In the Eastern Pacific region (140°W to North America), nineteen tropical depressions formed, of which seventeen became tropical storms, nine further intensifying into hurricanes, and five ultimately reaching major hurricanes of Category 3 intensity or higher on the Saffir Simpson Scale.
