Super Typhoon Mitag (also known as Super Typhoon Jonalyn in the Philippines, sometimes known as Super Typhoon Jona) was an extremely catastrophic typhoon that struck the Philippines and Taiwan.


The name Mitag was submitted to the ESCAP/WMO Typhoon Committee by Micronesia for use from January 1, 2000 and either means "My Eyes" or is the name of a Yap woman. The PAGASA name of this typhoon, Jonalyn, refers to Filipino singer Jonalyn "Jona" Viray.

Due to the severe damage caused by the typhoon, the name Mitag was retired at the Ninth Joint Session of the ESCAP/WMO Typhoon Committee and WMO/ESCAP Panel on Tropical Cyclones during 2021. The name Liduduhniap was chosen to replace Mitag. PAGASA announced that the name Jonalyn will be retired from their naming lists. PAGASA chose the name Janella to replace Jonalyn on their naming lists.
