The World Meteorological Organization's Hurricane Committee, meeting in Martinique, France, April 9-13 to review the devastating 2017 Atlantic hurricane season and to discuss regional coordination and operational planning for the 2018 season, has retired the names Harvey, Irma, Maria, and Nate from its list of rotating names.
The only time that there is a change in the list is if a storm is so deadly or costly that the future use of its name on a different storm would be inappropriate for reasons of sensitivity. "Male and female names alternate alphabetically and the lists are used every six years", WMO said.
The retired names will be replaced by Harold, Idalia, Margot and Nigel and will make their debut during the 2023 hurricane season.
With the four new retirees, there have been 86 names pulled from the Atlantic list since 1953, when storms began to be named. Damage costs exceeded $250 billion in the United States alone, while recovery for the worst-hit Caribbean islands such as Dominica may take years.
Hurricane Harvey became a category 4 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson scale before making landfall along the middle Texas coast on August 25. Irma caused 44 deaths and 85 indirect deaths in the Caribbean and Florida. Harvey is the second-costliest hurricane in USA history behind only Katrina in 2005. Seven months later many on the island are still without power. Hurricane Maria ravaged the island of Dominica as a category 5 on September 19, and later devastated Puerto Rico as a high-end category 4 hurricane. In Puerto Rico, the death toll stands at 65, plus an unknown number of indirect deaths.
Hurricane Nate crossed northeastern Nicaragua and eastern Honduras as a tropical storm, then made landfall on the northern Gulf Coast as a category 1 hurricane.
Hurricane Irma made 4 landfalls in the Caribbean as a Category 5 storm before affecting most of Florida. Nate, meanwhile, was responsible for 45 deaths after crossing Central America.
After one of the most destructive hurricane seasons ever, the names of four hurricanes are being retired.
