I don’t understand the naming structure for hurricanes. My question is…WHY name them?
I live on the west coast of Canada, and we get some great storms coming our way. Should we name them?No! Of course not…
What about the poor people who have the same name as a famous hurricane? When people are introduced to a Katrina, the conversation will inevitably head to New Orleans. Fair? No.
Come up with a new identifying system for hurricanes. OK? The existing naming system is stupid.
All the Igor‘s of the world can breathe a sigh of relief though that they won’t be used to describe any future disasters…
