Calling all Freds, Elsas, Bills, Sophies, and Anas’. The full list of 2021 hurricane names has been announced, with some new additions

Since they could be viewed as a communications hindrance and increase confusion for people, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) banned the use of Greek letters for supplemental hurricanes as of last week — and created an alternative list of names. (NHC also retired hurricane names Dorian, Laura, Eta, and Iota from being used ever again.)

This means if we complete the standard alphabetical list, we will begin naming storms after the following “supplemental” names.

While the Atlantic hurricane season spans from June-November, this year, the NHC will start sharing weather bulletins about potential storms on May 15 and are considering this date as the new start date for hurricane season, due to earlier storm formations

#ProTip: 🌬️ Blow this on over to all the Graces, Henri’s, Kates + others on this list as a reminder to prepare for hurricane season
