Ever wonder how a hurricane gets a name?
A list of names is created every six years by the World Meteorological Organization and as disturbances develop into tropical storms, they are named based on the lists — which makes tracking and identifying them easier for weather experts.
The lists are alphabetical and they are assigned to storms in that order. If a name isn’t used in a particular year, it’s recycled to a list for the future. However, when storms are particularly destructive, the names are retired.
