Names of Hurricanes that have been Retired

Every so often a hurricane causes so much damage and destruction, the national Weather Service "retires" a name, or takes it out of circulation. This is to prevent confusion with multiple names. The following list is of such infamous storms, and the dates in which they hit. Why are there so many more hurricanes with women's names? This is because the National Weather Service didn't start giving hurricanes men's names until 1979.

Future Northern Hemisphere Atlantic Hurricane Names

Hurricanes in the Northern hemisphere are named from the following lists. At the start of each season, a hurricane's name begins with A. The second hurricane of the season is named with a B, right on down the line, until the next season, when they start over at A again. Names repeat every 6 years. That means that the hurricanes in 2005 will have the same names as the hurricanes this year!
