Re: Typhoon approaching Philippines

Lol Jim.......we've been really lucky this year.....all the Typhoons have headed north ravaging Taiwan and Japan.

This is our first one and it's mid October.

I think we will get a family of them now.

Re: Typhoon approaching Philippines

Just as I thought, a second Typhoon is quickly forming behind this first one.....

I can't remember, but what is the proper meteorological term for a series of Typhoons.... Is it 'Family'?

Re: Typhoon approaching Philippines

Just a heads up. Yesterday and today winds have been blowing From the North. This means we should expect any new late season typhoon to cut across the middle of the Philippines or perhaps a rare one that hits Palawan.
