For the central North Pacific, between 140W and 180W:

There were no tropical cyclones in the Central Pacific Hurricane
Center, CPHC, area of responsibility during the month of November.

There were five tropical cyclones in the central North Pacific
during the 2019 hurricane season. The only hurricane of the season,
Erick, briefly became a major hurricane on 30 July after it crossed
into the basin from the northeast Pacific. However, Erick steadily
weakened after that as it passed far south of the main Hawaiian
Islands. The other four systems in the central North Pacific reached
tropical storm intensity. Two of these systems, Akoni and Ema, were
given names from the Central Pacific list of Hawaiian names. None
of the five tropical cyclones directly impacted the main Hawaiian
Islands. However, Ema dissipated over the southern portion of the
Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument shortly before crossing
between French Frigate Shoals and Maro Reef.

Reports on individual tropical cyclones, when completed, are
available at the Central Pacific Hurricane Center (CPHC) website at
