The 1995 Pacific typhoon season occurred all year round, unusual in that most tropical cyclones tend to form in the northwestern Pacific Ocean between May and November. [Gary Padgett. [http://www.typhoon2000.ph/garyp_mgtcs/may03sum.txt May 2003 Tropical Cyclone Summary.] Retrieved 2006-08-26.]

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 1995 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.

Notable Storms

Thirty five tropical cyclones formed this year in the Western Pacific, of which 26 became tropical storms. Fifteen storms reached typhoon intensity, five of them achieving super typhoon strength.

name=Tropical Storm Irving
category=storm
type=tropical storm



track=Irving 1995 track.pngformed=August 13

dissipated=August 30, 1995
highest winds=55 kts (100 km/h, 65 mph) (1-min)
lowest pressure=984 mbar (HPa)
An active monsoon trough developed Tropical Storm Janis, forming on August 17 and becoming a tropical storm on the 21st. Another tropical depression to Janis's west merged with the storm, weakening it rather than the typical strengthening after a merger. Janis continued northwestward, eventually restrengthening to a 65 mph tropical storm before hitting eastern China. It recurved to the northeast, and hit near Seoul, South Korea, on the 26th. The storm brought more rain to an area hit by a typhoon only a month before, causing an additional 45 deaths and $428.5 million in damage.

Tropical Depression Eleven

infobox hurricane small

category=depression
type=tropical depression



track=11-W 1995 track.pngformed=August 21

dissipated=September 1, 1995
highest winds=130 kts (240 km/h, 150 mph) (1-min)
lowest pressure=901 mbar (HPa)
A tropical depression that formed on August 24 became a tropical storm on the 26th. Kent rapidly intensified on the 29th to a 150 mph super typhoon over the Luzon straight, but it weakened to a 110 mph typhoon as it made landfall on China near Hong Kong on the 31st. Kent caused 52 casualties, as well as $89 million in damage (1995 USD).

lowest pressure=898 mbar (HPa)

Typhoon Polly

infobox hurricane small
name=Typhoon Polly
category=cat2
type=typhoon



track=Polly 1995 track.pngformed=September 9

uper Typhoon Ryan

infobox hurricane small
name=Super Typhoon Ryan
category=cat4
type=typhoon

dissipated=September 24, 1995
highest winds=130 kts (240 km/h, 150 mph) (1-min)
lowest pressure=897 mbar (HPa)
The monsoon trough spawned a tropical depression over the South China Sea on September 14. It drifted northwestward, becoming a tropical storm on the 16th and a typhoon on the 19th. As Ryan turned northeastward, it rapidly intensified to become a super typhoon on the 21st, the first ever to form and reach that intensity in the South China Sea. The super typhoon passed south of Taiwan, and weakened to a 110 mph typhoon as it made landfall on southwestern Japan on the 23rd. Ryan only caused 5 deaths on its path.

Typhoon Sibyl (Mameng)

108 fatalities and $38.5 million in damage (1995 USD) can be attributed to Typhoon Sibyl as it crossed the central Philippines on September 29. Sibyl actually strengthened while passing through the archipelago due to the contraction of the wind field.

Typhoon Ted

Tropical Storm Val

uper Typhoon Ward

Typhoon Yvette

Typhoon Zack (Pepang)

Like Sibyl, Zack strengthened while crossing the central Philippines on October 28. The typhoon continued to intensify over the South China Sea to a 140 mph storm, but weakened to a 115 mph typhoon as it made landfall on eastern Vietnam on the 1st. Zach caused 110 deaths and heavy damage from flooding.

uper Typhoon Angela (Rosing)

infobox hurricane small
name=Super Typhoon Angela
category=cat5
type=super typhoon


track=Angela 1995 track.pngformed=October 20
dissipated=November 7, 1995
highest winds=convert|185|mph|km/h|abbr=on|lk=off
lowest pressure=872 mbar (HPa)
The monsoon trough that developed Yvette and Zach spawned another tropical depression on October 20. It moved to the west, organizing very slowly to become a tropical storm on the 26th. 2 days later Angela became a typhoon, and from the 31st to the 1st Angela rapidly intensified to a convert|185|mph|km/h|abbr=on|lk=off super typhoon. It maintained that intensity as it moved westward, hitting the Philippines on the 2nd as a slightly weaker convert|160|mph|km/h|abbr=on|lk=off storm. Angela continued to the west-northwest, where upper level winds caused it to dissipate on the 7th over the Gulf of Tonkin. Angela caused 9.33 billion Philippine Pesos (1995 pesos) in damage across the Philippines, resulting in 882 fatalities. [Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration.

Tropical Storm Brian

Tropical Storm Colleen

Tropical Depression 32/33

Tropical Depressions 32W and 33W, though operationally treated as two separate cyclones, were in actuality one system; a relative rare event that shows the difficulties of tracking poorly organized storms. 32 developed on November 30 east of the Philippines. Operationally it was said to have tracked to the northeast and dissipated, with a second area of convection to the west becoming 33W. 32's convection became disorganized with the shower activity heading northeastward, but the low level circulation remained behind and headed westward to be called 33. The depression headed west-southwest, where it brought heavy rain to the Philippines on the 4th and 5th, killing 14 people. The most recent example prior to this system that had two names was Tropical Storm Ken-Lola in the 1989 Pacific typhoon season.

Tropical Storm Dan

1995 storm names

Western North Pacific tropical cyclones were named by the Joint Typhoon Warning Center. This was the last year the following names were used. The first storm of 1995 was named Chuck and the final one was named Dan.

Philippines

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) uses its own naming scheme for tropical cyclones within its area of responsibility. Lists are recycled every four years. This is the same list used for the 1991 season, with the exception of Ulding, which replaced Uring. The name Rosing was retired after this season.
