    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
