1952 Pacific typhoon season

The 1952 Pacific typhoon season had no official bounds, 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 1952 Pacific hurricane season. Tropical Storms formed in the entire west Pacific basin were assigned a name by the Fleet Weather Center on Guam.

Typhoon Dinah

On June 23, Dinah struck to the west of the Kanto Region in Japan. 65 people were killed and 70 were missing.

Typhoon Trix

Typhoon Trix struck the central Philippines with winds of 140 mph. Trix struck the Bicol region hard killing 995 people.

Super Typhoon Wilma

On October 26, ten people were lost when a USAF WB-29 disappeared during a flight into Super Typhoon Wilma.

1952 storm names

The names Jeanne, Lois, Nona, Vae and Wilma were retired after this year. They were replaced with Jean, Lucille, Nadine, Virginia and Wendy.
