Tropical Cyclones Names in the Philippines

Tropical Cyclones Names in the Philippines

One location that does consistently name tropical depressions is the Philippines. Since 1963, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) have been assigning local storm names for everything from a typhoon to a tropical depression in the monitored area from 115E to 135E and from 5N to 25N. The names of the Philippine typhoons and tropical storms are listed in the Philippine Storm Names.

The general consensus is that local names are more easily remembered and heeded among the local islanders in the Philippines Area of Responsibility (PAR). Naming a tropical depression early is believed to allow residents to prepare for the sometimes disastrous flooding that can result from even a weak tropical depression. Once the names are used for the season, a set of auxiliary names is used. The names are then rotated annually. Every four years, the names start over again.

Other regions in the Western North Pacific use naming conventions contributed by a multitude of countries.

Below are the lists of Tropical Cyclones Names in the Philippines:
