The National Hurricane Center sent around a reminder this month with 2017’s hurricane names and pronunciation guide.
And while storm season doesn’t start until June 1, if you’re on the list you may want to start preparing for the possibility that a hurricane with your name on it may form up this year.
Hurricane Harvey has a ring to it, but it may be hard to hunker down for a Hurricane Irma or Gert.
Hurricanes get monikers based on their basin, and names that are familiar in the region.
For the Atlantic basin, that means names familiar to the Caribbean and the U.S.
