Hurricane

A hurricane is a tropical cyclone.  When the  maximum sustained surface wind reaches 74 mph or more the tropical cyclone is referred to as a hurricane.  Hurricane winds may be accompanied by storm surge, coastal flooding, and/or river flooding.  The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) compiled six lists of names that they cycle through to name hurricanes.  The names on this years' list are Andrea - Barry - Chantal - Dorian - Erin - Fernand - Gabrielle - Humberto - Imelda - Jerry - Karen - Lorenzo - Melissa - Nestor - Olga - Pablo - Rebekah - Sebastien - Tanya - Van - Wendy.  If a hurricane is particularly deadly or costly, the hurricanes name will be retired from the list.
