has become extratropical and has been finalled out. In the Philippines, Nangka is called Langka and the fruit itself is very large. When I lived there I had two Jackfruit trees as well as the mandatory Banana and Papaya trees and even grew my own pineapple.

Although the RSMC for Typhoons in WPAC is the Typhoon Centre in Tokyo, there are local warning centers in other Countries. PAGASA (the Philippine equivalent of NOAA) has local maritime and public warning responsibility for the region around the Philippines. Therefore, for Public use they have developed lists of names in the Filipino dialects for use when storms enter their AOR (Area of Responsibility) when they use in all of their publicly issued advisories and warnings. They developed the new lists at the same time the list of Asian names were developed using input from the Public. They did the same thing when the International names came out from JTWC and this would cause US Military Forecasters at Clark and Subic headaches because people on base would think that there were two different storms when they would hear about Typhoon Irma and Bagyong "Bidang" (Bagyo is the Filipino word for Typhoon and ng is a connector-those two names in fact were actually used together in 1974). TS Linfa which recently crossed Luzon was named "Chedeng" by PAGASA.
