Pacific typhoon seasons
1965, 1966, 1967, 1968, 1969

The 1967 Pacific typhoon season has no official bounds; it ran year-round in 1967, but most tropical cyclones tend to form in the northwestern Pacific Ocean between June and December. These dates conventionally delimit the period of each year when most tropical cyclones form in the northwestern Pacific Ocean.

The scope of this article is limited to the Pacific Ocean, north of the equator and west of the international date line. Storms that form east of the date line and north of the equator are called hurricanes; see 1967 Pacific hurricane season. Tropical Storms formed in the entire west pacific basin were assigned a name by the Joint Typhoon Warning Center. Tropical depressions in this basin have the "W" suffix added to their number. Tropical depressions that enter or form in the Philippine area of responsibility are assigned a name by the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration or PAGASA. This can often result in the same storm having two names.

DurationSeptember 14 (Entered basin) – September 22
Peak intensity240 km/h (150 mph) (1-min)  932 mbar (hPa)

On September 14, 1967, Tropical Storm Sarah from the 1967 Pacific hurricane season entered the Western Pacific basin. Immediately after the first advisory following Sarah's entrance into the West Pacific Ocean, it was upgraded to a minimal Typhoon. Typhoon Sarah continued to intensify and late on September 15, it was upgraded to a Category 4 typhoon. The next day, Sarah reached a peak of 150 mph winds and 932 millibars in pressure (this was the only pressure reading retrieved from Sarah); this made Sarah a Super typhoon. Sarah started a gradual weakening trend after wards, and late on September 21, Sarah became extratropical as a 80mph Category 1 typhoon.

On September 16, Sarah made landfall on Wake Island at peak intensity, causing widespread damage. This was the third tropical cyclone since the beginning of observations in 1935 to bring typhoon-force winds to Wake Island. An unnamed typhoon on October 19 in 1940 (Tomita, 1968) brought 120-knot winds and Olive in 1952 had lashed the island with 150-knot winds. Olive's attack on the island occurred on the 16th of September--exactly 15 years prior to that of Sarah.[1]

Baguio, Philippines recorded 47.86 inches (1,216 mm) of rainfall in a 24 hour period spanning portions of October 17 and October 18. It was significantly wetter in China, where 108.21 inches (2,749 mm) fell in a 48 hour period encompassing October 17 through October 19.[3]
