Two of the five new cyclone names provided by Macau

Two of five new tropical cyclone names developing in the Pacific Northwest and South China Sea were provided by Macau. The two names are Penha and Peilou. The former is the name of the hill forming part of the backdrop of Sai Van and Nam Van lakes, while the latter is a transcription of the Chinese name for the famous black-faced spoonbills that regularly winter in Macau. They replace Lin Fa and Vong Fong, names which have both been suspended due to the significant destruction caused by the homonymous cyclones. The other three names are Narra, from the Philippines; Gaenari from South Korea and Bang-lang from Vietnam. The first two are bush type names and the last is a tree type.
