If you’re like me, you probably look at the ever-more-diverse list of tropical storm names each year, to find ones that match people you know. Then, you say with Nostradamus-like certainty, “Oh, THAT’s going to be a bad one.”
OK, so it doesn’t usually prove to be true; it’s still part of the annual ritual. Here are the names for 2007: Andrea, Barry, Chantal, Dean, Erin, Felix, Gabrielle, Humberto, Ingrid, Jerry, Karen, Lorenzo, Melissa, Noel, Olga, Pablo, Rebekah, Sebastien, Van, Wendy. Still curious? Here’s everything you’d want to know about hurricane names.
If you haven’t seen it, we posted video from this year’s All-Staff Emergency Preparedness Meeting.
