How do they choose Hurricane names? Hurricane Names for 2015.

The International World Meteorological Organization chooses the names. Originally, hurricane names were women’s names only. In 1979, the list was changed to include men’s names. Six lists are used in rotation. The 2008 list became the 2014 list. A name is removed and  changed on the list if a storm was deadly or costly. (Andrew, Sandy). Some names seem to be changed just because: like Fernand which is now Felix.

Hurricane Names 2015 Season — Keep in mind that FEMA imposes a 30 day waiting period after the application for flood insurance. So don’t wait till you hear about the first hurricane heading your way.

Make Sure You Are Ready!
If not, you better call your insurance company asap!

Toni- I've heard that this is supposed to be a mild year, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed on that one.

Good morning Toni. I never knew this. I'm glad the deadly names are not used again.

Posted by Sheila Anderson, The Real Estate Whisperer Who Listens 732-715-1133 (Referral Group Incorporated) over 3 years ago

Thx for all this interesting trivia.  I didn't realize that they recycled the lists.  But, I did know that they retired some of the names.

Interesting information. Your last paragraph is the most important! Take care of insurance needs before the likely need!

Toni,

We wish you a VERY mild hurricane season...I am so glad they are including men's name in the mix.  Happy Mother's Day to you.  A

Well I'm very glad there doesn't seem to be a hurricane Nicole on the list! 

Posted by Nicole Doty - Gilbert Real Estate Expert, Broker/Owner of Zion Realty ZionRealtyAZ.com (Zion Realty) over 3 years ago

Toni - thanks for the lesson.

I think all of you who live where hurricanes are a threat are very brave - I'm sure I wouldn't have enough nerve to stay there during hurricane season, no matter how wonderful the weather might be. 

Posted by Marte Cliff, your real estate writer (Marte Cliff Copywriting) over 3 years ago

Hi Everyone, thank you for your comments. I think Kathy Streib is right; it's supposed to be a mild season this year. Of course, it only takes one.

Fred Hernden Only at my house!

Gary L. Waters, Broker Owner Waters Realty of Brevard, LLC  That is the most important part!

Marte Cliff I used to live where earthquakes happened. I prefer Hurricanes.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel Me too! Happy Meow Mom's Day to you.

Toni - I live where snow happens - and once in a while, a bad forest fire. The last really big one was almost 50 years ago, which shows that our fire-fighting equipment and crews have gotten better and better at stopping them before they get out of control.

Posted by Marte Cliff, your real estate writer (Marte Cliff Copywriting) over 3 years ago

Marte Cliff That's good to hear. Actually our area hasn't been hit by a hurricane since 1921 but you never know. 

Posted by Toni Weidman, 26 Years Selling Homes in New Port Richey, FL (Sailwinds Realty) over 3 years ago

That's good! I know I couldn't live where they get hit almost every year - even if it's only a "small" one. But then, a strong wind scares me - even here where it usually isn't a huge problem. We did have a storm a couple of years ago that took down trees and power lines - and when I go to town I pass one mobile home that STILL has a tree laying over it. 

Posted by Marte Cliff, your real estate writer (Marte Cliff Copywriting) over 3 years ago

Thanks for that informtion on naming of Hurricanes!!! I knew they are named, but didn't know how!!!

Posted by Sham Reddy, CRS (H E R Realty, Dayton, OH) over 3 years ago

Toni - thanks for sharing that information.  I had now idea how the came up with the names although I remember when they stop using only women's names.

Posted by Grant Schneider, Your Coach Helping You Create Successful Outcomes (Performance Development Strategies) over 3 years ago

thanks for the background Toni, I am sure glad that we do not have any visits from these storms.
