Ever wonder how hurricanes get their names?
And why do hurricanes have names at all? Meteorologists long ago learned that naming tropical storms and hurricanes helps people remember the storms, communicate about them more effectively, and so stay safer if and when a particular storm strikes a coast.
These experts assign names to hurricanes according to a formal list of names that is approved before the start of each hurricane season.
