Moving west-northwest for much of its life, a tropical disturbance formed in the Marshall Islands on December 15. The 1986 Pacific typhoon season has no official bounds; it ran year-round in 1986, but most tropical cyclones tend to form in the northwestern Pacific Ocean between May and December. The system turned to the west-southwest, forming a large eye as it became a typhoon on August 9 before stalling. It headed westward, slowly strengthening to a tropical storm on the 2nd and a typhoon on the 3rd. [7] Teresa continued moving westward at a constant pace and intensified into a typhoon on October 19, reaching its peak intensity of 80 knots (150 km/h) that same day. The system moved northwest at a slow pace for a couple days.

[30], Tropical Storm Amy killed 15 and left over 32,000 people displaced in Thailand and Cambodia, and caused damage worth $8 million (1994 USD). Unfortunately, the landfall coincided with an unusually high astronomical tide, resulting in extreme storm surge combined with heavy flooding, amounting to over 1,000 fatalities and significant damage totaling 7.5 billion RMB,[1][32] or $874.4 million (1994 USD). [23], As Tim developed in the Philippine Sea, a tropical disturbance in the South China Sea began to show development. [1] Total losses from the storm in Guangdong were estimated to be $114 million (1994 USD). In the Philippine Sea, Yunya briefly restrengthened and reached a secondary peak of 40 knots (74 km/h). One person drowned when knocked into the ocean, while 24 were injured, most of which due to a lightning strike which occurred in the wake of Nat along its trailing surface trough. There were 41 tropical cyclones during 1994 in the Western North Pacific; 39 formed within the area while two, Tropical Storm Li and Typhoon John, formed in the Eastern North Pacific (east of longitude 140°W) and crossed the date line to enter this basin. The depression moved west-northwestward, becoming a tropical storm on October 20. The system drifted southward and slowly developed, becoming Tropical Depression 18W, and then a tropical storm, on August 8. With the Hawaiian islands behind it, John began a slow turn to the north, taking near-direct aim at Johnston Atoll, a small group of islands populated only by a United States military base. Russ became a tropical storm on the evening of June 4,[17] passing just south of Dongsha that night. Maximum daily rainfall in the territory was recorded at Yuen Long on June 8, when 41.0 millimetres (1.61 in) was reported. The season had no official bounds and it ran year-round in 1994, but most tropical cyclones tend to form in the northwestern Pacific Ocean between May and November.
