The 1967 Pacific typhoon season has no official bounds; it ran year-round in 1967, 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.
Typhoon Violet, which formed on April 1, steadily weakened from her peak of 140 mph to hit northeastern Luzon as a 115 mph typhoon on the 8th. It dissipated in the South China Sea on the 11th without causing any significant damage.
Typhoon Billie, having developed on July 2, reached her peak of 85 mph on the 5th. Its intensity fluctuated as it headed northward to Japan, and became extratropical on the 8th. Its extratropical remnant continued northeastward, and brought heavy rain to Honshū and Kyūshū, killing 347 people.
A cold core low developed tropical characteristics and became Tropical Depression 8W on July 6. It tracked westward, becoming a tropical storm later that day and a typhoon on the 7th. After briefly weakening to a tropical storm, Clara re-attained typhoon status, and peaked at 115 mph on the 10th. Clara weakened to a 90 mph typhoon just before hitting Taiwan on the 11th, and dissipated over China the next day. Clara's heavy rains caused 69 fatalities (with 32 missing).
On September 14, 1967, Tropical Storm Sarah from the 1967 Pacific hurricane season entered the Western Pacific basin. Immediately after the first advisory following Sarah's entrance into the West Pacific Ocean, it was upgraded to a minimal Typhoon. Typhoon Sarah continued to intensify and late on September 15, it was upgraded to a Category 4 typhoon. The next day, Sarah reached a peak of 150 mph winds and 932 millibars in pressure (this was the only pressure reading retrieved from Sarah); this made Sarah a Super typhoon. Sarah started a gradual weakening trend after wards, and late on September 21, Sarah became extratropical as a 80 mph Category 1 typhoon.
On September 16, Sarah made landfall on Wake Island at peak intensity, causing widespread damage. This was the third tropical cyclone since the beginning of observations in 1935 to bring typhoon-force winds to Wake Island. An unnamed typhoon on October 19 in 1940 (Tomita, 1968) brought 120-knot winds and Olive in 1952 had lashed the island with 150-knot winds. Olive's attack on the island occurred on the 16th of September—exactly 15 years prior to that of Sarah.
Carla became an intense typhoon while located in the Philippine Sea on October 15. During its weakening stage, the typhoon led to extreme rainfall near its track. Baguio, Philippines recorded 47.86 inches (1,216 mm) of rainfall in a 24 hour period spanning portions of October 17 and October 18. It was significantly wetter in China, where 108.21 inches (2,749 mm) fell in a 48 hour period encompassing October 17 through October 19.
