Summary of Information on Typhoons in 2008
The 2008 typhoon season had 22 typhoons, which is a smaller number than average, and this season was even less active than the 2007 typhoon season. Because many typhoons did not turn north and move westward, the number of typhoons that passed near Japan was 9, which is less than the average of 10.8, and the number of landfall was even zero, which is only the fourth year on record since 1951. In Japan, only Izu and Ogasawara Islands have more typhoons than average, 6 to the average of 5.0, but generally speaking, the effect of typhoons on Japan was small this year. to be continued..
