Five hurricane names from last year's storms retired

Associated Press

WASHINGTON -- Never will Katrina be so little missed. Nor Dennis, Rita, Stan and Wilma -- four other hurricane names from last year's devastating storms that have now been officially retired.

Normally six lists of names are used in rotation for storms in the Atlantic-Caribbean-Gulf of Mexico region, but names of particularly destructive storms are retired.

The decision to retire these five names was made by an international committee of the World Meteorological Organization meeting in Puerto Rico, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced.

They were part of a record 27 named storms and 15 hurricanes that occurred in 2005.

The retired names will be replaced by Don, Katia, Rina, Sean and Whitney.

Some 67 names have been retired since storms were first named in 1953. The first to be dropped, in 1954, were Carol and Hazel. Last year's five is the most retired in a single year.

This year's hurricane names will be: Alberto, Beryl, Chris, Debby, Ernesto, Florence, Gordon, Helene, Isaac, Joyce, Kirk, Leslie, Michael, Nadine, Oscar, Patty, Rafael, Sandy, Tony, Valerie, William.

If that number of names suffices.

They better pick out more names than that. They are calling for a record number of hurricanes this year which will hit the East side of the US. This report was like on a weather channel or date line type program.

Must be Global warming, or the news realy ' hypes ' the hurricanes up now a days.. As a kid growing up in Central Florida, I dont recall all the hurricanes nor the fuss about them... Perhaps because they mainly hit the coastal areas ??

I never recall anyone evacuating, nor bording up their homes. ( again, perhaps on the coastal areas they did )

I tell my wife she is bad luck lol rofl , ever since we got married and she moved down here, we have had a slew of hurricanes .. All in all we have done quite well through them. I think the longest we lost power for was for 23 hours.. Then 12 hours from another one. and realy no structal damage. ( lost a few shingles on the shed )
