Typhoon “Prapiroon” passed through Korea.

I was curious about the world Prapiroon.

Prapiroon? What is that word?

I searched and knew that it is name of a typhoon.

And I will tell you about the story.

Why names appeared?

It was made not to confuse the weather forecast because a typhoon can last for more than a week or there may be more than one typhoon in the same area at the same time.

How many names?

There are 140 names and only 14 countries affected by the typhoon (China, South Korea, North Korea, Hong Kong, Japan, Laos, Macau, Malaysia, Micronesia, Philippines, Cambodia, Thailand, USA and Vietnam)
The names are using according to the order in which the typhoon occurs.

Prapiroon?
The seventh typhoon, PRAPIROON, is a name submitted by Thailand that means Rain's god.

My opinion

It was interesting there are only 140 names and 14 countries affected by typhoon.

    The typhoon will be named "MARIA" when it reaches our country Philippines. We experience continuous heavy rain right now but hoping that it will be gone soon and won't affect much further and harm everyone.

      oh, I see. It changes its name again in the Philippines!
