Why Katrina and not not jeanu reeves, Why Rita and not Reese witherspoon

Do you ever wonder about the name Katrina , Charlie , Rita and all.. These names sounds good. But u know how dangerous and deadly these names are.. Ask some one in New Orleans or Texas they are going to tell you about it.

If you want to know about it read below ..

Hurricanes names are chosen from a list selected by the World Meteorological Organization. The Atlantic is assigned six lists of names, with one list used each year. Every sixth year, the first list begins again. Each name on the list starts with a different letter, for example, the name of the very first hurricane of the season starts with the letter A, the next starts with the letter B, and so on. The letters "Q", "U", "X", "Y" and "Z", however, are not used.

Often when an unusually destructive hurricane hits, that hurricane's name is retired and never used again. Since 1954, forty names have been retired. In 1996 Hurricane Luis was retired. Is your name among the currently used or retired hurricane names?. Check to look whether your name is in the list..
