The list of names chosen for hurricanes has been released by the National Hurricane Center and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
The list of names is used in rotation and is recycled every six years. The names used in 2018 won’t be used again until 2024 unless one storm becomes destructive enough to be identified as that name for the rest of history and a new name replaces it.
For example, we won’t ever see Katrina used ever again to name a hurricane because of Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
The list includes 21 names, and if more than 21 hurricanes occur, new storms will use names from the Greek alphabet until the year ends.
