Tropical Storm Cimaron (Isang)

A tropical disturbance formed east of the Philippines on July 15. Later that day, it was given the name Isang by the PAGASA.[1] Early the next day, it intensified into Tropical Storm Cimaron as it made several thunderstorms. Its remnants stayed east of Taiwan on July 19 and it finally dissipated on July 20.[2]

On July 17, a lightning incident within the Philippine province of Ilocos Sur, left two people dead and two others injured.[3] Torrential rains over southern Fujian Province triggered significant flooding, with areas already saturated from Typhoon Soulik less than a week prior. A 24-hour peak of Template:Convert was measured in Mei Village, with an hourly maximum of Template:Convert.[4] Many homes were inundated and several roads were washed out.[5] Some areas experienced 1-in-500-year flooding. Approximately 20.28 million people were affected by the storm, 8.92 million of whom were temporarily relocated. At least one person was killed and another was reported missing.[6] An unusually intense thunderstorm associated with Cimaron produced a prolific lightning event over Xiamen, with 406 strikes recorded in two hours.[7]
