The names are in! With the 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season starting June 1st and running until the end of November, it’s almost certain we will come across at least one named storm. A storm will be named when it reaches the tropical storm stage of development with winds blowing at a minimum of 39 mph.
While our technology to help detect and track potentially disastrous weather has immensely improved, the names, not so much. Check out the list of hurricane names for the 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season.
You can read more about the names and their previous history here. Ever wonder why storm names are recycled? “The only time that there is a change in the list is if a storm is so deadly or costly that the future use of its name on a different storm would be inappropriate for reasons of sensitivity,'' states the National Hurricane Center.
With the storm season fast approaching, be sure to prepare for a disaster before one strikes! And remember, your homeowners insurance doesn’t cover flooding related to storms, so make sure you’re protected with flood insurance too. Get a quote from a Lighthouse agent now.
