Storm names are no game....
This is info from a Gannett News article published this past Sunday. Here are the names for the 2006 Hurricane/Tropical Storm season here in the US:
Alberto, Beryl, Chris, Debby, Ernesto, Florence, Gordon, Helene, Isaac, Joyce, KIRK, Leslie, Michael, Nadine, Oscar, Patty, Rafael, Sandy, Tony, Valerie, William.
I don't know if I should be excited about that, but I guess it's kind of neat that my name will be all over the news at some point this summer/fall.
The article also said that in other parts of the world, cyclones (hurricanes) are named after countries or plants. They cite that using a person's name is more impactful when warnings are issued!?
