}The 2005 Pacific typhoon season had no official bounds; it ran year-round in 2005, but most tropical cyclones tend to form in the northwestern Pacific Ocean between May and November. [http://www.typhoon2000.ph/garyp_mgtcs/may03sum.txt] 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 2005 Pacific hurricane season. Tropical storms that form in the West Pacific basin are assigned a name by the Japan Meteorological Agency. 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.

This season, the circular list of 140 names, in use since January 1, 2000, was recycled following the formation of Typhoons Saola; the final name on the list, and Damrey; the first name on the list.

torms

Please note that on the following list, storms are listed by Tropical Depression number, and therefore Saola (18W), which is on the naming list before Damrey (17W), is listed after Damrey, having been the later storm to form, despite being the earlier to attain Tropical Storm status. Also, windspeed advisories differ from the Joint Typhoon Warning Center to the Japan Meteorological Agency as the JTWC uses the U.S. 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 means that JTWC maximum winds will appear to be higher than the maximum winds described by the JMA for the same cyclone.

By 1800 UTC (0300 JST July 13), it had reached tropical storm strength and was named Haitang, a Chinese name for flowering crabapple. It grew to typhoon strength at 1800 UTC (0300 JST July 14) the following day. As it moved westward it continued to gain in strength, reaching Category three status as it entered the Philippine area of responsibility. PAGASA named the storm Feria for Philippine warnings on July 15. By July 16, the storm continued tracking west and became a threat to Taiwan and Japan's Sakishima Islands. Haitang strengthened into a Category 5 super typhoon. On July 17 it weakened to a Category 3 as it continued west, sparing Sakishima a direct hit but aiming directly for Taiwan. Typhoon Haitang made landfall near Hualien, Taiwan at 0000 UTC (0800 HKT) on the morning of July 18. Taking a full day to cross the island and over the interior mountains, it caused flash floods and landslides killing four people. Weakening to a tropical storm as it entered the South China Sea, it reorganized into a minimal typhoon as it approached the southeast China coast. Haitang made landfall for the second time near Wenzhou China on July 19 at 1200 UTC (2000 HKT). Moving inland, it rapidly lost its strength and dissipated. PAGASA stopped issuing advisories for the storm near Jiangxi on July 20.

Tropical Depression 16W formed 205 nautical miles (375 km) east-southeast of Dong Tac, Vietnam on the morning of September 16. It reached Tropical Storm strength overnight local time and was named Vicente, a Chamorro male name. Shortly after forming, Vicente interacted with a tropical disturbance west of Luzon and made a cyclonic loop. Vicente then absorbed the disturbance before passing just south of Hainan Island. Eventually, Vicente tracked into the Vietnam coast northwest of Hue on September 18 and gradually dissipated.

As the pressure gradient between Vicente and a ridge of high pressure over southeastern China brought a strong easterly airstream to the coastal areas of Guangdong and caused rough seas with swells, a swimmer was drowned on September 17. Another one drowned the following day in rough seas at Sai Kung, Hong Kong.Also, a ship from China struck a reef between Shangchuan and Xiachuan Islands. All seventeen crew members were rescued.

In Vietnam, about 5 people were killed or reported missing.

Upper-level shear and the depression's landfall caused the storm to lose organization on July 6 while located about 40 nautical miles (75 km) south of Hong Kong.

Infobox Hurricane Small
Basin=WPac



Formed=October 7
Dissipated=October 8
1-min winds=30
Pressure=1000
The meteorological agencies of Guangdong and Hainan upgraded a low-pressure center over South China Sea to a tropical depression at 0800 local time, October 6. The Hong Kong Observatory followed suit 30 hours later. The JTWC finally issued a warning for this system at 1500 UTC October 7 (2300 local time), and tropical depression number 20W was issued to the system. The JTWC issued its final advisory on the system just six hours later, convert|55|nmi|km west-northwest of Hue, Vietnam. As the system never reached Tropical Storm strength, it was not given a name from the list. The only damage it did, if any, however, was that massive rainfall amounts were recorded - over 230 mm (9 inches) were recorded in some parts of Hainan.

Pressure=991
On December 16, 95W.INVEST developed in the Philippine area of responsibility, and was given the name Quedan for Philippine warnings. 95W organized into Tropical Depression 25W on December 18 off the northern coast of Borneo. On December 19, the JTWC classified it as a Tropical Storm. The JMA issued gale warnings on it as a Tropical Depression for 18 hours between December 19 and December 20, but never upgraded it to a tropical storm, marking only the 11th time since the current naming conventions began in 2000 that the JTWC and the JMA had disagreed over naming a tropical storm after two storms each in 2002, 2003, 2004, as well as three in 2001 and one in the first year. The storm dissipated early on December 20 as wind shear increased on the system.

torm names

Western North Pacific tropical cyclones are named by the RSMC Tokyo-Typhoon Center of the Japan Meteorological Agency. Names are selected from the following sequential list, there is no annual list. Names were contributed by 13 members of the ESCAP/WMO Typhoon Committee, except for Singapore. The 13 nations or territories, along with Micronesia, each submitted 10 names, which are used in alphabetical order by the English name of the country. Unused names are marked in grey. The first storm for 2005 was Kulap.

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 in 2001 with the exceptions of Bising, Dante, Nando and Pepeng, which replace Barok, Darna, Nanang and Pabling. Unused names are marked in gray.

Retirement

Three names were retired from this season: "Matsa", "Nabi" and "Longwang". [ [http://www.disaster.go.th/html/ricb/foreign/2006/tc/typhoon38.html 38th session ] ] The replacement were to be submitted at the 2006 meeting of the Typhoon Committee; "Pakhar", "Doksuri" and "Haikui" were selected respectively.
