In storm information below, wind-speed advisories differ from the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) to the JMA as the JTWC uses the United States criteria of 1-minute mean to designate maximum sustained winds, while the JMA uses the 10-minute mean wind criteria to designate tropical cyclone maximum sustained winds. This difference generally results in JTWC maximum winds appearing higher than the maximum winds described by the JMA for the same cyclone. Most of the 31 cyclones that developed this year either remained out at sea or were weak at landfall.

Famous quotes containing the word storms:
“You dont need to pray to God any more when there are storms in the sky, but you do have to be insured.”
—Bertolt Brecht (18981956)
“Glorious bouquets and storms of applause ... are the trimmings which every artist naturally enjoys. But to move an audience in such a role, to hear in the applause that unmistakable note which breaks through good theatre manners and comes from the heart, is to feel that you have won through to life itself. Such pleasure does not vanish with the fall of the curtain, but becomes part of ones own life.”
—Dame Alice Markova (b. 1910)
“An old man, broken with the storms of state,
Is come to lay his weary bones among ye:
Give him a little earth for charity.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
