How Hurricanes Form and Are Named

When two or three hurricanes are active at the same time, using names  makes it much easier for meteorologists, researchers, emergency response workers, ship captains and citizens to follow their paths and prepare in advance of their coming on shore.

Who Decides on a Hurricane Name?

The World Meteorological Organization develops a list of names that are assigned in alphabetical order to tropical storms as they are discovered and followed. Names can be repeated after approximately six years, but the names of especially severe storms are permanently retired from use. There will never be another Hurricane Katrina for example!
