Names of This Year's First 10 Hurricanes
Billkozy on 07/14/2007
|Hurricane season has already started, and prognosticators have estimated that we're headed for a 13 to 17 storm season. That's a heavy season unfortunately. The names for the big storms have already been decided (by the World Meteorological Organization). To make sure they have plenty of names, they've actually picked out 21 names for hurricanes this season although it's highly unlikely we'll hit that many. |
Although I don't see what the big deal is in coming up with a name if they ever need an extra one...I mean I just can't imagine a scenario where weathermen are scrambling around Meteorologic Headquarters saying, "Oh my God, there's another storm coming in three days, didn't anybody name
it??! What'll we do? What'll we call it? This can't happen!"
Anyway, last year they predicted 13 to 16 storms but only 9 came to be.
Cross your fingers this year they fall short again in their prediction.
And here are the first ten names for the 2007 Storm Season....
And please remember to rate the quiz! (Hopefully a Category 9 for amazing...)
