Ever got curious about what the names of the tropical cyclones be? Good news for all of you because the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) released the possible names of the tropical cyclones that would possibly hit the country.
How are cyclones named?
This is actually not a big deal. However, these names tend to be because of the fact that a certain cyclone enters the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR).

PAGASA has four (4) sets of names. These names are being used every for (4) years to match the number of names they have.
Moreover, PAGASA has a list of 20 cyclones. If the number of tropical cyclones exceeds twenty-five (25), PAGASA has an auxiliary list that they will use to suffice the number of cyclones and typhoons.

How often do typhoons or cyclones hit the country?
On average, around twenty (20) tropical storms or typhoons hit the country each year. If it exceeds (and we do hope it doesn’t), the administration uses an auxiliary list.
What are the names of the cyclones of 2019?
As you may have noticed, the names of the typhoons are in alphabetical order. This is for the administration and everyone to know how many has already hit the country.
What do you think about the names of the tropical cyclones and typhoons? Hopefully, not as strong as previous ones like Ondoy would hit the country.
Stay tuned for updates and for more interesting news!
