REVISED LIST OF NAMES
FOR TROPICAL CYCLONES
WITHIN THE PHILIPPINE AREA OF RESPONSIBILITY
(Effective January 2010)
      The first tropical cyclone of the year starts with the name beginning in letter A as in AURING under column 1 for 2005 and so on down the list as one disturbance succeeds another.  The 5th year (2006) will bring us back to column 1 of AURING.  In the event that the  number of tropical cyclones within the year exceeds 25, an auxiliary list is used, the first ten of which are listed under each column.

Philippines was known to be one of the largest user of social media specially Facebook. The official Facebook Page of PAGASA was launch. 
Click here and like the page.  
The official page wall became a place for discussion, request and question. Some question are relevant some are not, some people shared link of international weather agency and question about PAGASA credibility.  But like Doc. Yumul said " PAGASA has all the accountability on typhoon that enters the PAR".  



For the latest Philippine news stories and videos, visit GMANews.TV


PAGASA finally showed radar image of typhoon like they promised on their twitter account. By the help of twipic PAGASA can simply shared the latest satellite images and radar images to the public. What you see on the image was the actually echo of the typhoon as it passed the 400 KM range of Baler Radar. Baler radar was strategically located to monitor typhoon coming from the Philippine Sea. And by the help of this radar PAGASA can monitor the exact location of the weather disturbance.

On your own opinion did PAGASA, passed or failed doing their job.
