Tech News: Typhoon 2000, a better alternative when checking the Philippine weather

The monsoon season is already affecting major parts of the Philippines and tropical cyclones are a constant visitors to this country. I have been visiting one particular website that focuses on giving information about the current weather pattern affecting the Philippines and neighboring Asian countries.

Typhoon 2000.ph was created specifically give its followers "easy-to-understand" tropical cyclone information over the South China Sea and Northwest Pacific Basin (from Malay Peninsula - 100° E up to the International Date Line - 180°). This website is often referred to as a "one-stop" web portal which links all Asia-Pacific warning centers monitoring active or existing tropical cyclones.

Typhoon 2000 gets its information from a variety of meteorological sources such as Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical & Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), U.S. Navy's Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) based in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, United Nations' Regional Specialized Meteorological Centre (RSMC) Tokyo-Typhoon Centre (Japan Meteorological Agency), & Hong Kong Observatory.
