Gulf Coast Hurricane Tracker

A single source reference on tropical weather predictions. With a traditional focus on the upper Texas and Louisiana Gulf Coast we've maintained links to track all Atlantic Basin, Caribbean and eastern Pacific storm systems. We are now expanding our view to tropical storms throughout the world intending to be a comprehensive global storm tracking resource.

Tropical Depression 24W (Tino) dissipates

The tropical depression named Tino came ashore in eastern Luzon last night and quickly dissipated. It is now just a remnant low. The region is expecting scattered showers and thunderstorms today with clody skies in the rest of the country.

Additionally, the death toll from Typhoon Mirinae (Santi) continues to rise.

MANILA, Philippines - Tropical depression “Tino” weakened and dissipated yesterday but the northeast monsoon would continue to bring scattered rains over Luzon in the next two to three days, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said.

Pagasa deputy administrator Nathaniel Cruz said Luzon would have mostly cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and isolated thunderstorms.


Meanwhile, the National Disaster Coordinating Council (NDCC) reported three more deaths from typhoon “Santi,” bringing the total number of fatalities to 19.
The NDCC said the deaths were due mostly to drowning and occurred in suburban Laguna and in two eastern provinces.

Three other people are missing primarily due to flash floods, the council said. Almost 16,000 people are still in evacuation centers three days after the typhoon hit.

Floodwaters remain waist-deep or higher in Laguna and in Pangasinan, after Santi dumped more rain on areas already inundated by two previous deadly storms.
