Note #1: The maximum winds for the final two OPC warning positions 
represent the highest winds to be experienced west of 35W.  The center
of ex-Bill was well to the east of 35W by this time.

Note #2: The track positions and pressures from 25/1800 UTC forward were
sent to the author by Kevin Boyle from the Newchapel Observatory at 
Stoke-on-Trent, UK.  These were obtained from UK analysis maps.  (A
special thanks to Kevin for compiling and sending the information.)

Note #3: The track positions following 27/1800 UTC were sent by Steve
Young and are based on NRL reanalysis data.  (A special thanks to Steve
for sending this and other information.)

Note: The information for Danny following the final NHC advisory was
taken from a track compiled and sent to the author by Chris Fogarty of
the Canadian Hurricane Centre.  The track from 30/0600 UTC onward 
represents a secondary baroclinic cyclone which absorbed the remnants
of Danny.  There was a little overlap, and the first two positions for
the secondary system are:

                           Sources of Information
                           ----------------------

     The track coordinates and 1-minute average maximum sustained wind
  values in general were taken from operational warnings issued by the
  Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) of the U. S. Air Force and Navy,
  located at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.  The central pressure and 10-minute
  average maximum sustained wind estimates for most systems were obtained
  from warnings issued by the Japanese Meteorological Agency (JMA), which
  is the World Meteorological Organization's Regional Specialised Meteor-
  ological Centre for the basin.  In a few instances, information from
  warnings issued by other Asian warning centers may have been utilized.
  The center position coordinates from JMA and other centers were com-
  pared with those from JTWC and annotations made in the Remarks column
  when the differences in general amounted to 40-50 nm or more.

     Michael V. Padua of Naga City in the Philippines, owner of the
  Typhoon 2000 website, sends me cyclone tracks based upon warnings
  issued by the Japanese Meteorological Agency and the Philippines'
  Atmospheric, Geophysical & Astronomical Services Administration
  (PAGASA).  A special thanks to Michael for his efforts.

                          ----------------------

     The track coordinates as well as the central pressure and 10-minute
  average maximum sustained wind estimates were obtained from warnings
  issued by Meteo France's Tropical Cyclone Warning Centre on Reunion
  Island (MFR), which is the World Meteorological Organization's Regional
  Specialised Meteorological Centre for the basin.  The 1-minute average
  maximum sustained wind estimates were taken from warnings issued by the
  Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) of the U. S. Air Force and Navy,
  located at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.  The center position coordinates from
  JTWC were compared with those from MFR and annotations made in the
  Remarks column when the differences in general amounted to 40-50 nm
  or more.

Note: MFR issued only two warnings on this disturbance with winds 
estimated to have locally reached 25 kts in heavier squalls.  This track
was sent by Steve Young, and I have reproduced it essentially as he sent
it.  The Dvorak ratings are from SAB (KNES).  This system's inclusion
here is based on the three T2.0/2.0 ratings which imply it could have
had 30-kt 1-min avg winds.  JTWC's rating reached T2.0/2.0 for only
one cycle: at 18/2330 UTC.

              !!!!!!  IMPORTANT NOTE - PLEASE READ  !!!!!!

     To repeat the caveat which is included in the Author's Note
  at the end of the cyclone summaries--the tropical cyclone tracks
  I prepare are based upon the operational warnings/advisories/
  advices/bulletins which are issued by the various tropical cyclone
  warning agencies around the world.   Users of these tracks should
  be aware that they are preliminary and subject to revision during
  post-seasonal analyses of the cyclones by the forecasters and
  analysts at the several warning centers.

     For the Atlantic and Northeast Pacific basins, official tropical
  cyclone reports and "best tracks" can be found at the website of
  the Tropical Prediction Center/National Hurricane Center:

     http://www.nhc.noaa.gov>

     The Joint Typhoon Warning Center's website contains links to their
  Annual Tropical Cyclone Reports which include that agency's "best
  tracks" for tropical cyclones in the Northwest Pacific basin, the
  North Indian Ocean, and the Southern Hemisphere:

  and monthly cyclone track files can be obtained at the following
