颱風為何叫「山竹」

in #typhoon3 years ago

中國廣東省和香港、澳門多地仍然嚴陣以待。廣東省委書記李希已要求當地做好風險排查與海上作業人員避險工作。

香港天文台周四發佈警告,呼籲市民採取適當防禦措施。天文台表示,儘管山竹的路徑依然存在變數,但由於其環流廣闊,香港周日料仍將有狂風大雨,海面將浪高洶湧。

為何叫「山竹」

2000年起,世界氣象組織決定對西北太平洋和南海地區的熱帶氣旋採用統一的命名方法。

中國、朝鮮、日本、越南等14個國家和地區各提供10個颱風名,最終形成了包括140個颱風名字的命名錶。此後,颱風的名字根據該表循環使用。

「山竹」一詞來源於泰語,原意為一種水果,2013年被首次用於風暴命名,替代在2006年因侵襲東南亞多國並造成廣泛的破壞而被退役的颱風「榴槤」(Durian)。
