KEY WEST, FL - SEPTEMBER 16: A man looks out at the ocean from The Southernmost Point marker in Key West on September 16, 2017 in Key West, Florida. Many places in the Keys still lack water, electricity or mobile phone service and residents are still not permitted to go further south than Islamorada. The Federal Emergency Management Agency has reported that 25-percent of all homes in the Florida Keys were destroyed and 65-percent sustained major damage when they took a direct hit from Hurricane Irma.

If you live in Florida, especially by the coast, you know hurricane season can be a rough one. Just because the hurricanes skipped us last year, don’t expect that to be a trend. We are now less than 100 days from the official start of the 2022 hurricane season, and the names they’ll use,  officially starts on June 1.

Even though it sounds like a ways away, tropical activity can develop outside this time period. Due to this, the National Hurricane Center will begin issuing tropical weather forecasts beginning May 15, 2022. We’re currently in Snowbird season, fire season is next, then hurricane season.

Starting from A to Z (but yes, some letters are skipped) here is the list of names for the 2022 Atlantic hurricane season. These were named and established by the World Meteorological Organization. I have some questions about number 20. I have never in my life heard that name before!
