Amang (Mekkhala)

When a tropical storm occurs in Phillipines waters, the Philippines weather agency names the storm according to local customs. This is why you may have been a little confused about the eventual demise of Tropical storm (once super-typhoon) Mekkhala. Even the term Typhoon (though in common use) may be changed to the Philippines term for a tropical storm.


Notice the frequencies of the smaller storms spinning off from the main one.


I think it fascinating that a storm could bounce off some landforms and cross others. We have still got a lot to learn.
