1967 Pacific typhoon season

The 1967 Pacific typhoon season has no official bounds; it ran year-round in 1967, but most tropical cyclones tend to form in the northwestern Pacific Ocean between June and December. These dates conventionally delimit the period of each year when most tropical cyclones form in the northwestern Pacific Ocean.

The scope of this article is limited to the Pacific Ocean, north of the equator and west of the international date line. Storms that form east of the date line and north of the equator are called hurricanes; see 1967 Pacific hurricane season. Tropical Storms formed in the entire west pacific basin were assigned a name by the Joint Typhoon Warning Center. Tropical depressions in this basin have the "W" suffix added to their number. Tropical depressions that enter or form in the Philippine area of responsibility are assigned a name by the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration or PAGASA. This can often result in the same storm having two names.



During the 1967 Pacific typhoon season, 40 tropical depressions formed, of which 35 became tropical storms. Twenty tropical storms attained typhoon intensity, and five of the typhoons reached super typhoon intensity.

Category 4 typhoon (SSHWS)
DurationSeptember 14 (Entered Basin) – September 22
Peak intensity240 km/h (150 mph) (1-min)  930 hPa (mbar)

On September 14, Tropical Storm Sarah, which formed across the International Date Line, entered the Western Pacific. Immediately after the first advisory following Sarah's entrance into the West Pacific, it was upgraded to a minimal typhoon. Typhoon Sarah continued to intensify, and late on September 15, it was upgraded to a Category 4 typhoon. The next day, Sarah reached its peak intensity, attaining 150 mph winds and a 932 millibar (mbar) pressure reading (this was the only pressure measurement retrieved from the typhoon), making the system a super typhoon. Sarah began gradually weakening afterwards, and late on September 21, it became extratropical; it was still an 80 mph Category 1 typhoon at the time.

On September 16, Sarah made landfall on Wake Island at peak intensity, causing widespread damage. This typhoon was the third tropical cyclone since the beginning of observations in 1935 to bring typhoon-force winds to Wake Island, following an unnamed typhoon which struck on October 19, 1940 (Tomita, 1968), which brought 120 knot winds to the island, and Typhoon Olive in 1952, which lashed the island with 150 knot winds. Coincidentally, Olive's attack on the island occurred on September 16, exactly 15 years prior to Sarah's direct hit.[1]

Baguio, Philippines recorded 47.86 inches (1,216 mm) of rainfall in a 24‑hour period between October 17 and October 18; however, Carla's precipitation was significantly more extreme in Taiwan, where 108.21 inches (2,749 mm) fell in a 48‑hour period between October 17 and October 19.[3] The worst typhoon to hit the country during the year killing 250 people and leaving 30 others missing

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration uses its own naming scheme for tropical cyclones in their area of responsibility. PAGASA assigns names to tropical depressions that form within their area of responsibility and any tropical cyclone that might move into their area of responsibility. Should the list of names for a given year prove to be insufficient, names are taken from an auxiliary list, the first 6 of which are published each year before the season starts. The names not retired from this list will be used again in the 1973 season. This is the same list used for the 1963 season. The names Uring, Welming, Yayang, Ading and Barang used the first time (and only, in the case of Welming). PAGASA uses its own naming scheme that starts in the Filipino alphabet, with names of Filipino female names ending with "ng" (A, B, K, D, etc.). Names that were not assigned/going to use are marked in gray.


Due to an extreme death toll caused by Typhoon Emma (Welming) in the Philippines, PAGASA later retired the name Welming and was replaced by Warling for the 1971 season.
