REMARKS:
180900Z POSITION NEAR 14.9S 148.9E.
TROPICAL CYCLONE 18P (NATHAN), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 225 NM EAST-
NORTHEAST OF CAIRNS, AUSTRALIA, HAS TRACKED WESTWARD AT 02 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED MULTISPECTRAL SATELLITE IMAGERY
SHOWS THE SYSTEM HAS DEVELOPED A 5-NM PINHOLE EYE AS IT CONTINUED TO
CONSOLIDATE AND DEEPEN. THE INITIAL POSITION IS BASED ON THE ABOVE
EYE FEATURE WITH HIGH CONFIDENCE. THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS BASED ON
AN OVERALL ASSESSMENT OF DVORAK ESTIMATES FROM PGTW, KNES, AND ABRF.
UPPER-LEVEL ANALYSIS INDICATES TC 18P IS LOCATED IN AN AREA OF LOW
(05 TO 10 KNOT) VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND GOOD RADIAL OUTFLOW AS A
POINT-SOURCE ANTICYCLONE DEVELOPED OVERHEAD. ADDITIONALLY, SEA
SURFACE TEMPERATURES IN THE AREA ARE CONDUCIVE FOR DEVELOPMENT. TC
18P IS TRACKING SLOWLY WESTWARD AS THE SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR) TO THE
SOUTHWEST BUILDS. THE STR WILL EVENTUALLY DOMINATE THE STEERING
PATTERN AND DRIVE TC NATHAN ON A SOLID WESTWARD TRACK. UPPER-LEVEL
CONDITIONS ARE ALSO EXPECTED TO IMPROVE, ALLOWING TC 18P TO STEADILY
INTENSIFY LEADING TO A PEAK OF 85 KNOTS BY TAU 24 BEFORE MAKING
LANDFALL AND CROSSING CAPE YORK PENINSULA. FRICTIONAL EFFECTS WILL
CAUSE DEGRADATION BUT NATHAN WILL EMERGE IN THE GULF OF CARPENTARIA
AS A 50-KNOT SYSTEM, RE-INTENSIFY SLIGHTLY BEFORE MAKING A SECONDARY
LANDFALL OVER CAPE ARNHEM BEFORE TAU 96. MAXIMUM SIGNIFICANT WAVE
HEIGHT AT 180600Z IS 25 FEET. NEXT WARNINGS AT 182100Z AND 190900Z.//

http://www.pdc.org/weather/index.php/2015/03/18/tropical-cyclone-activity-report-pacific-indian-oceans-706/

Tropical Cyclone 18P (Nathan) remains active in the Coral Sea…located approximately 225 NM east-northeast of Cairns, Australia
Tropical cyclone 18P (Nathan) remains active in the Coral Sea, which has now reached the equivalent of a category 1 hurricane [on the Saffir Simpson Hurricane Scale]…eventually making landfall as a potential category 2 hurricane along the east coast of the Cape York Peninsula, northeast Queensland

Here’s a recent NASA satellite image of this storm offshore from the Queensland, Australian coast – and the current Willis Island Radar Loop
This tropical cyclone was located approximately 225 NM east-northeast of Cairns, Australia…crawling westward at a very slow paced 03 mph.

According to the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC), satellite imagery shows that this system has developed a 5 NM pinhole eye, as it continued to consolidate and deepen.

Upper level analysis indicates that TC 18P is located in an area of low 5-10 knot wind shear, and good radial outflow. In addition, sea surface temperatures in the area are conducive for further development.

Going forward, this TC will move out of the current weak steering currents, into a more firmly established westerly track…as it heads towards the coast.

TC 18P intensity will gradually increase as the shear aloft weakens, which should allow strengthening prior to landfall along the east coast of the Cape York Peninsula. As this storm moves across the Peninsula, it’s forecast to weaken, although remain alive as it emerges into the Gulf of Carpenteria.

It’s winds are expected to down shift from the cyclone strength, back into a tropical storm as it moves out into the warm waters of the Gulf. Thereafter, as this westward crossing of the Gulf occurs, Nathan may re-intensify slightly…before making a second landfall along the east coast of Cape Arnhem within 96 hours.

Maximum sustained surface winds, according the JTWC’s warning #16, are 65 knots…with gusts to 80 knots. The JTWC forecast has this system peaking at 85 knots with gusts to near 105 within 24 hours.

Here’s computer model track guidance for 18P – along with a NOAA satellite image of this tropical cyclone 

According to the Australian Government, Bureau of Meteorology (BOM), here’s information on this system -

BOM forecast track for Nathan  http://www.bom.gov.au/fwo/IDQ65001.png?1426693847287

Hazards:

Gales with gusts to 110 km/h currently extend out to approximately 150 kilometers from the center of the cyclone. Gales may develop about coastal and island communities between Cape Melville and Innisfail on Thursday night before possibly extending north to Lockhart River and over adjacent inland areas from the coast, including Palmerville and Laura on Friday.

Destructive winds extend out to about 70 kilometers from the center of the cyclone and may begin to affect coastal and island communities between Cape Melville and Cairns overnight Thursday into early Friday morning (local time), depending on the track the cyclone takes. Maximum wind gusts close to the center are likely to reach 260 kilometers per hour as the cyclone makes landfall.

Coastal residents between Cape Melville and Cairns are specifically warned of the dangerous storm tide that could occur as the cyclone crosses the coast. The sea is likely to rise steadily up to a level well above the normal tide, with damaging waves and flooding of some low-lying areas, which could also extend some way inland. People living in areas likely to be affected by this flooding should take measures to protect their property as much as possible and be prepared to follow instructions regarding evacuation of the area if advised to do so by the authorities.

Large waves may produce minor flooding along the foreshore between Cairns and Innisfail. People in these areas likely to be affected by this flooding should take measures to protect their property as much as possible and be prepared to help their neighbors.

Heavy rainfall, which may lead to flash flooding, may develop between Cape Melville and Cairns late Thursday and extend inland as the cyclone crosses the coast during Friday.

Recommended Action:

People between Cape Melville and Innisfail should immediately commence or continue preparations, especially securing boats and property using available daylight hours.

Severe Tropical Storm Etau

Severe tropical storm (JMA)

Tropical storm (SSHWS)

Duration
September 5 – September 9

Peak intensity
95 km/h (60 mph) (10-min)  985 mbar (hPa)

On September 2, a tropical disturbance developed 560 km (350 mi) to the northwest of the island of Guam. The system moved in a northwesterly track until it organised with deep convection,[253] therefore, it was then classified as a weak tropical depression by the JMA on September 5.[254] The next day, the JTWC issued a TCFA on the system as in the same time the JMA started issuing advisories on it.[255][256] Later in the same day, the JMA upgraded the depression to a tropical storm, receiving the name Etau whilst the JTWC designated it as 18W.[257][258] Formative bands wrapped around its ragged and ill-defined LLCC.[259] Satellite image revealed that Etau had convection increasing near its center and low vertical wind shear was surrounding the storm,[260] therefore, caused the JTWC to upgrade it to a tropical storm.

Truth be told, I don't fully understand all the abbreviations on JTWC or where to find the links referred to here on the site. At least we have some idea what's happening...
It's about TROPICAL CYCLONE 08S (CORENTIN) gusts to about 92 mph, moving SSW for past few hours. No idea where it will end up.

http://www.cnn.com/2017/12/25/asia/philippines-bus-crash-tembin-vinta/index.html

Typhoon Tembin: Dozens killed

The deaths come as Filipinos, many in the southern island of Mindanao, are still reeling from a weekend of lashing winds and flooding brought about by Typhoon Tembin, known locally as Vinta.
After battering the southern island of Mindanao, Tembin slammed into another set of Philippine islands late Saturday.

The storm has killed at least 164 people in the Southeast Asian country, sweeping away residents and leaving communities buried in mud, authorities said Monday.
An additional 171 people are missing, Philippine National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) spokeswoman Mina Marasigan told a news conference.
Officials have given conflicting death tolls since the storm ravaged towns and displaced thousands. The spokeswoman said there may be higher counts elsewhere but they are still unconfirmed and unverified.

The current storm left the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) Sunday, and has made landfall in southern Vietnam. It is now a weak typhoon, with 120 km/h (75 mph) sustained winds, according to CNN meteorologist Pedram Javaheri. It is expected to continue to weaken rapidly over the region, moving into southern Cambodia and then Thailand over the next 24 hours.

Typhoon Agaton leaves 2 dead in Cebu
By Rene Acosta - January 2, 2018
MORE than 1,000 families were evacuated in Eastern and Western Samar and in the Caraga region, while thousands of passengers were stranded as Tropical Depression Agaton made a landfall over Dinagat and Siargao early Tuesday, bringing in rains.

The storm, the first to hit the country this year, also brought heavy to moderate rains in other provinces, state weather bureau Pagasa said.

Supt. Gilbert Gorero, spokesman for the Western Visayas regional police, said rains brought by Agaton resulted in floodings in at least 86 barangays and rendered several roads impassable to traffic.

At least 25 families, or 74 persons were evacuated.

Meanwhile, two residents of the southern town of Malabuyoc in Cebu province were confirmed dead due to a landslide triggered by Agaton that made landfall in nearby Santander town at about 5 a.m. on Tuesday.

The Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (PDRRMO) identified the fatalities as Richie Pimentel, 39, and Flora Basadre Mata, 64.

PDRRMO Spokesman Julius Regner said Mata was inside her house when it was buried in mud from the landslide that hit Barangay Looc in Malabuyoc.

Cebu Cebuano: Lalawigan sa Sugbu; Filipino: Lalawigan ng Cebu) is a province of the Philippines located in the Central Visayas (Region VII) region, and consisting of a main island and 167 surrounding islands and islets. Its capital is Cebu City, the oldest city and first capital of the Philippines, which is politically independent from the provincial government.

Cholera pretty much inevitable in the wake of cyclone Idai. Help is needed there.

Cyclone IDAI, excerpts from Wiki[edia article:

On 14 March, Idai reached peak intensity with maximum sustained winds of 195 km/h (120 mph) and a minimum central pressure of 940 hPa (27.76 inHg). Idai then began to weaken as it approached the coast of Mozambique due to less favourable conditions. On 15 March, Idai made landfall near Beira, Mozambique, as an intense tropical cyclone, subsequently weakening into a remnant low on 16 March. On 19 March, Idai's remnants re-emerged into the Mozambique Channel, and dissipated on 21 March.[8][9]

Idai brought strong winds and caused severe flooding in Madagascar, Mozambique, Malawi, and Zimbabwe, which killed 784 people – 468 in Mozambique, 259 in Zimbabwe, 56 in Malawi, and one in Madagascar – and affected more than 3 million others. Catastrophic damage occurred in and around Beira in southern Mozambique. The President of Mozambique stated that more than 1,000 people may have died in the storm

Mozambique - Tropical Cyclone Kenneth leaves 38 dead and 20,000 displaced

https://www.cnn.com/2019/04/29/africa/mozambique-cyclone-kenneth-intl/index.html

Tropical Cyclone Kenneth death toll rises to 38 in Mozambique, officials say

By Brent Swails and Joshua Berlinger, CNN
Updated 12:19 PM ET, Mon April 29, 2019

(CNN)The death toll from Tropical Cyclone Kenneth has climbed to 38, the Mozambican government's disaster management institute said on Monday.

Four people have also died in the island nation of Comoros, according to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.
The cyclone, the strongest storm to hit the region since records began, made landfall in Mozambique on Thursday.
Kenneth is the second powerful tropical storm to hit southeast Africa in five weeks. Despite its power, Cyclone Kenneth is slow-moving, leading experts to fear it could continue to dump torrential rains on an area still reeling from the devastation wrought by Cyclone Idai.

That storm killed 750 people across southern Africa, forced thousands into camps in March and wreaked an estimated $1 billion worth of damage -- about 10% of Mozambique's GDP.
In the commercial hub and provincial capital of Pemba, residents Monday said they hoped the worst was over after a weekend of heavy rains and flooding since Cyclone Kenneth made landfall Thursday.
"The rain has stopped, at least for now. There is still water on the ground but the main roads in the city are now passable," said resident Innocent Mushunje.
[ Yowbarb Note: many still without power after Idai and Kenneth.]

Tropical Cyclone Harold Lashing Vanuatu and Could Pass Near Fiji Later This Week

By Linda Lamless than an hour ago weather.com 

At a Glance
Tropical Cyclone Harold is lashing Vanuatu.
Strong winds, flooding rain and storm surge are serious concerns.
Harold will track near or south of Fiji and Tonga midweek.
Tropical Cyclone Harold made landfall on the island of Espiritu Santo in the Republic of Vanuatu and will move slowly through the South Pacific archipelago country early this week with strong winds, heavy rain and storm surge before tracking near Fiji later this week.

Harold formed between the Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea last Wednesday. Flooding and downed trees were reported in the Solomon Islands, and at least 24 passengers were missing after a ferry encountered strong winds and violent seas from Harold early Friday.

Note from Barb: Realizing sometimes my Topic titles and terms could be more exact. Changed the name of this Topic
from: WORLD TYPHOONS to: WORLD TYPHOONS and CYCLONES.

What's the difference between cyclones, hurricanes, typhoons?

The answer: there is no difference.

The National Ocean Service says that hurricane, typhoon, and cyclone are all terms used to describe "a rotating, organized system of clouds and thunderstorms that originates over tropical or subtropical waters."

The location where the storm originates is how scientists determine what to call the system.

CNN Meteorologist Chad Myers explains:

Cyclones are in the Indian Ocean and South Pacific
Typhoons are in the Western North Pacific
Hurricanes are in the Eastern North Pacific and Northern Atlantic Basin
And yes, it is possible for storms to change names as they move across the map. For example, a hurricane can become a typhoon when it moves over the dateline.

The National Ocean Service said that these names all describe "a rotating, organized system of clouds and thunderstorms that originates over tropical or subtropical waters."
