Second one of the season already forming, far away so not a drop will hit us…
As per request, from Ceevee:
[quote] pulled some links together from last year’s Phoon site and its credited posters as some newbies will come up with WCIF info, sites…
Not all are listed, but these are the ones mostly used.
Some '11 sites are not activated yet for '12 or dead – EG the English link for school closures in TW.
Will update when active.
Will also ask Icon to move the links to her first post @ the top of the thread.
Typhoon preparation Checklist
TSR – a highly recommendable link seen it’s ease of use and they also have an email warning service
Taiwan Central Weather Bureau
Weather- Earthquakes – Typhoons – other advisories
(don’t be surprised their forecasts are utterly wrong sometimes)
Weather Undergound – Tropical overview / Severe weather
Monterey Marine Meteorology Division (US Navy)
They pull the info from JTWC (a link which can’t be opened by many, related to browser/ security settings)
PAGASA Philippines – as they might have a worse time again in Luzon this year vs. Taiwan.
Have a safe 2012 season.[/quote]
