A true relation of my weather-worried grandmother, I am still scarfing up information on hurricanes. I find the carnival-like, “Oh Boy, it’s going to be a disaster!” commentary on television distasteful. But, I also find myself surfing for details.
Some favorite factiods:
The list of hurricane names is posted at on a government NASA page. If the Internet can be believed, there are six lists of names, each used for a complete hurricane season. No “Q”, “U”, “X”, “Y” and “Z” names appear.
Hurricane Donna visited southeastern Massachusetts in 1960.
Maybe Grandmother would have liked the Internet after all.
