Hurricane Naming
Retired Hurricane Names

Ever Since 1953, The World Meteorological Organization has retired certain names of hurricanes, usually due to large amounts of damage, or a high loss of life. The WMO meets every spring and decides on which names to retire from the previous hurricane season. The current official record for the most names retired in a season is 4, shared by the 1955, 1995 and 2004 seasons, however, the 2005 Season will likely break that record.
