Hurricane season runs from June 1 through November 30 in the Atlantic Ocean (including the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Islands). An average hurricane season features 12 tropical storms of which six reach hurricane strength.
The World Meteorological Organization is responsible for assigning names to tropical storms that form in the Atlantic Ocean and reach a sustained wind speed of 39 miles per hour. Any storm that reaches a sustained wind speed of 74 miles per hour qualifies as a “Hurricane”.
Atlantic hurricane and tropical storm name lists repeat every six years, unless a named hurricane is so destructive that the World Meteorological Organization votes to retire that name from future lists. For example, in 2018, Sara replaced name “Sandy” from 2012.
