How the Hurricane Got Its Name
In the middle 1800's, an Australian Meteorologist named them by women's names. But in 1979, both male and female names were used. After a hurricanes name has been used for 5-10 years then it is considered " retired." Some retired names are: Andrew, Bob, Cesar, David, George, Hortense, Janet. See if you remember any of these!
