2010 Pacific Typhoon Season

The 2010 Pacific typhoon season was the least active Pacific typhoon season on record, in terms of the number of named storms. The season began with Tropical Depression 01W on January 18. Unlike the other Pacific typhoon seasons, the active in the first half 2010 was very weak as Omais was the only named storm in the period. The season finally became active since July; in addition, three storms— Lionrock, Kompasu and Namtheun were active simultaneously in late August. In October, Typhoon Megi became the only super typhoon in 2010 and one of the most intense tropical cyclones on record. All of 14 named storms of the season were only active west of 150°E.

Two systems of the season moved out of area. On November 1, a tropical depression crossed southern Thailand and entered the North Indian Ocean, before intensifying into Severe Cyclonic Storm Jal. On December 20, a tropical depression (or a subtropical storm) crossed the International Date Line and became Tropical Storm Omeka.

Famous quotes containing the words pacific and/or season:

    We, the lineal representatives of the successful enactors of one scene of slaughter after another, must, whatever more pacific virtues we may also possess, still carry about with us, ready at any moment to burst into flame, the smoldering and sinister traits of character by means of which they lived through so many massacres, harming others, but themselves unharmed.
    William James (1842–1910)

    When I read a story, I relive the moment from which it sprang. A scene burned itself into me, a building magnetized me, a mood or season of Nature’s penetrated me, history suddenly appeared to me in some tiny act, or a face had begun to haunt me before I glanced at it.
    Elizabeth Bowen (1899–1973)
