Paper Abstract

The developments of Typhoon Lingling or TY27W in the South China Sea were studied utilizing the satellite data such as GMS, QuikSCAT/SeaWinds, TRMM, SSM/I and weather maps. Originating in the Philippines Sea, TY 27W was tracked over Central Philippines into the South China Sea making landfall near Qui Nhon, Vietnam. The data showed the pattern of development of wind and atmospheric pressure from Tropical Storm since 6 November 2001 to Typhoon Lingling on 9 to 12 November 2001. This cyclone entered the South China Sea as a weak tropical storm, but rapidly intensified while tracking along the southern edge of a strong northeasterly monsoon surge. TY 27W was a weak system as it passed over the resort island of Camiguin in central Philippines, but was tracked very slowly and drenched the area with torrential rains. After landing on the Vietnamese coast on 12 November 2001, the strength of Typhoon Lingling has declined into Tropical Depression and disappeared from the weather map since 12 November 2001 at 12 hour 9 minute 25 second (GMT). CNN reported that 171 people were confirmed dead, 118 missing, and thousands of homes damaged in the areas affected. TY 27W also produced heavy rains and high winds over central Vietnam. CNN reported 18 deaths, hundreds of injuries, and over 1000 homes destroyed in Vietnam.
