Anything worth talking about, is worth blogging about

Today is the first official day of 2009 Atlantic hurricane season and will run until November 30. This year, it technically began early with the formation of Tropical Depression One in May. If you live in the Caribbean, Central America, along the coast of the United States, Bermuda, or in Atlantic Canada, make sure you’re prepared. You can find updates, warnings, and advisories on all tropical cyclones in the Atlantic at the National Hurricane Center’s website.

This season’s list of names goes as follows:

  • Ana
  • Bill
  • Claudette
  • Danny
  • Erika
  • Fred
  • Grace
  • Henri
  • Ida
  • Joaquin
  • Kate
  • Larry
  • Mindy
  • Nicholas
  • Odette
  • Peter
  • Rose
  • Sam
  • Teresa
  • Victor
  • Wanda

In the unlikely event they run out of names, the Greek alphabet will be used to name any additional systems.

The central Pacific hurricane season also starts today, so if you live in Hawaii, make sure you’re prepared. The season will end November 30. Updates, warnings, and advisories are available from the Central Pacific Hurricane Center’s website. Names in this area are taken from four cyclic lists of Hawaiian names; the next five names are Lana, Maka, Neki, Omeka, and Pewa.
