Typhoon Lekima

Typhoon Lekima makes landfall in China
At least 18 people were killed (in Yongjia County on the outskirts of Wenzhou) on Saturday after Typhoon Lekima struck China's coast south of Shanghai, knocking down houses and trees, state TV reported.
Another 14 people were missing after Lekima hit land on Saturday in Zhejiang province, the report said.
More than 200 houses collapsed and 3,200 were damaged.
More than a million people moved to safety, many of them in Shanghai.
In Zhejiang's Taizhou city, 4,900 fishing boats returned to ports and scenic spots were shut down.
Lekima has already passed by the southern Ryukyu Islands of Japan, which include Okinawa, where locals experienced over 200mm (7.8in) of rain and winds of up to 168kph (104mph).
Lekima was the fourth typhoon in the western Pacific this week.
Typhoon Wipha brought intense gales and rain to China last weekend, Typhoon Francisco made landfall in Japan on Tuesday,
and
Typhoon Krosa has now formed in the Pacific. The slow-moving Krosa has winds of 165 kph (102.5 mph) is expected to hit mainland Japan by the middle of next week.
Earlier in the week, Lekima was briefly classified as a "super" typhoon, before weakening somewhat.

Re: Typhoon Lekima

Typhoon Krosa will be the 10th typhoon of the season (depending on how and where you count them). See: https://mainichi.jp/english/articles...0m/0na/010000c

And that's on top of a heatwave, with quite some impact, in Nippon. See: https://mainichi.jp/english/articles...0m/0na/013000c

Lekima is having an impact as far south as Malaysia. See (video news): https://www.thestartv.com/v/typhoon-...of-destruction

Roughly midway through, is this looking like a particularly active Pacific season, in terms of both frequency and strength?

This is indubitably a busy season in the Pacific and Indian Oceans.

Good idea to check regularly at: https://www.ssd.noaa.gov/PS/TROP/TCFP/index.html

If you accept the view that the function of a tropical revolving storm is to transfer heat energy from the tropics towards one of the poles, then you'd be inclined to reject the hypothesis of a cooling planet and embrace the contrary one.

2018 was also quite busy in the Pacific and Indian O.

If you join the dots, the chaos does suggest something like a trend, no?

Re: Typhoon Lekima

Update:
Typhoon Lekima left at least 30 people dead in China, after a landslide backed up a river that broke through debris and inundated homes, state media reported on Sunday.
Another 20 people remained missing, the official Xinhua News Agency said.

Re: Typhoon Lekima

The N Pacific, N of about 30 degrees latitude, shows respectable high Sea Surface Temperature anomaly.

See the NOAA anomaly chart for 8 August 2019: https://www.ospo.noaa.gov/data/sst/a....8.12.2019.gif

No surprise then that fishes normally found in warmer water are found in what is usually cooler water around the Korean peninsula:

Re: Typhoon Lekima

Typhoon Krosa, currently on its way to the home islands of Nippon, spent a very short time as a Cat. 1 storm and Cat. 2 storm (see the track: when Krosa did its best to draw the Greek letter Ω it was Cat. 1 or Cat. 2).

Now Krosa is a Tropical Storm, with central winds around 50 knots. Heavy rainfall with risks of local flooding and landslides are on the agenda.

Re: Typhoon Lekima

Tropical Storm Krosa made landfall in Hiroshima prefecture (74 years and 9 days since the USA via Enola Gay and Little Boy destroyed Hiroshima City) and on the 74th anniversary of the surrender of Nippon.

Video at: https://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/news/20190815_48/

Krosa is expected to be downgraded to Tropical Depression tomorrow 16 August UTC.

See: https://mainichi.jp/english/articles...0m/0na/015000c

One unexpected consequence of Krosa's approach to the home islands was a very warm day in Niigata prefecture, with the daily maximum temperature exceeding 40C (about 104F). Supposedly caused by hot air associated with Krosa.

See: https://mainichi.jp/english/articles...0m/0na/028000c
