2018 Atlantic Hurricane Names Alberto Beryl Chris Debby Ernesto Florence Gordon Helene Isaac Joyce Kirk Leslie Michael Nadine Oscar Patty Rafael Sara Tony Valerie William
Since 1953, Atlantic tropical storms had been named from lists originated by the National Hurricane Center. Since 1979, the names are maintained and updated through a strict procedure established by an international committee of the World Meteorological Organization using a six-year cycle that repeats most of the names. Each year, the WMO retires names of particular storms that cause massive destruction or deaths. Among names that have been retired in recent years are Andrew, Charley, Frances, Katrina, and Sandy. More details about this can be found here: Naming History and Retired Names.
Above-normal Atlantic hurricane season is most likely again this yearThe 2018 Atlantic hurricane season is expected to be another busy one, reflecting the 2017 season, according to the Tropical Storm Risk team based at University College in London, England. More forecasts will be upcoming as we get closer to the start of the season, June 1.
Be sure to check this link, NOAA’s interactive Historical Hurricane Tracks. Hurricane season runs from June 1 - November 30.
An interesting archive about past hurricanes dates from 1851.
Among the things that the National Hurricane Center and FEMA keep stressing:
•Make plans to secure your property.
•Cover all of your home’s windows. Permanent storm shutters offer the best protection for windows. A second option is to board up windows with 5/8” marine plywood, cut to fit and ready to install.
•Very important to note: Avoid using tape. Tape does not prevent windows from breaking.
