Pacific typhoon seasons
1965, 1966, 1967, 1968, 1969

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.

Storms[edit]

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.

Typhoon Billie, having developed on July 2, reached its peak of 85 mph on July 5. Billie's intensity fluctuated as it headed northward to Japan, and it became extratropical on the 8th; however, Billie's extratropical remnant continued northeastward, and it brought heavy rain to Honshū and Kyūshū, killing 347 people.

After briefly weakening to a tropical storm, Clara re-attained typhoon status, and it peaked in intensity on July 10, reaching winds of 115 mph. Clara weakened to a 90 mph typhoon just before hitting Taiwan on the 11th, and it dissipated over China the next day. Clara's heavy rains caused 69 fatalities and a further 32 people to be reported as missing.

Duration September 14 (Entered Basin) – September 22
Peak intensity 240 km/h (150 mph) (1-min)  932 mbar (hPa)

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]

Carla became an intense typhoon while located in the Philippine Sea on October 15.[2] During its weakening stage, the typhoon dumped extreme rainfall around its circulation. 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 China, where 108.21 inches (2,749 mm) fell in a 48 hour period between October 17 and October 19.[3]
