hurricane too retires

Updated on June 9, 2008

hurricanes too retire

The name of devastation, hurricanes, have a retirement period. The hurricanes that turn devastating in their name and fame are deemed to have been retired in order to prevent future catastrophes. Otherwise, hurricanes are given the same name from the lists on hurricanes.

Every year the list on hurricanes is rotated. However, the most devastating of all hurricanes are kept in a separate list and secluded, so as not to name a hurricane with the same that could prove devastating. Does it mean, hurricane names too are considered an ill omen? Such hurricanes are kept in the list of retired hurricanes.

The most recent "retired" hurricanes are hurricane Katrina (2005) and hurricane Wilma (2005) and Rita (2005). It means the year 2005 was a year of devastation that forced 3 hurricanes to say good-bye!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A low pressure zone over the warm oceanic surface is the right place for a hurricane to take birth. The regions lying between 5° and 20° north and south of the equator are the bredding grounds for hurricanes.It is at 74 mph or 119 km/hr that a tropical storm becomes a hurricane. their strength is measured on the Saffir-Simpson scale, i.e. from a m a weak category 1 storm to a catastrophic category 5 storm. Hurricanes can be from 60 -1000 miles wide.

Hurricanes prove too devastating becuase of their ability to carry large amounts of water from oceans and dump the same in the form of rainwater over a widespread area within a short period of time.

These tropical storms are called hurricanes in the United States and cyclones in Asia.
