    And today as I write this there is no tropical cyclone activity anywhere on earth.

    An Invest coming ashore in the Lone Star bringing with it much needed cooling and drenching rains and possibly gale force winds at the coast is it!

    The Global ACE is 74% of normal for this time.

    The Typhoon that blindsided Halsey’s 3rd fleet in 1944 and killed over 700 US sailors, was a December storm.

    There is possibly no worse location in the PI to be in than Tacloban if a typhoon enters the Leyte Gulf. Which is exactly what Typhoon Haiyan (named Yolanda by PAGASA) did in 2013, and hit the city with its northern eyewall. Tacloban is located in the northern end of the gulf, and has most of its commercial area and airport on flat land adjacent to the sea. The airport has an AMSL listed as 3m/10ft, and the end of the runway is about 100′ from the high tide mark. Even a run of the mill tropical storm will blow salt water onto the runway, and the 17′ storm surge of Haiyan reportedly went through the second floor of the airport terminal.

    I have visited Tacloban several times it is a TERRIBLE place to be when a Tropical or Typhoon comes through there because the city itself is just a couple feet above sea level in a flat region.
