WORLD - The decision has been finalized coming from the World Meteorological Organization. On Monday, the organization who are in charge of naming Tropical Systems in the Atlantic and Pacific announced that the names Erika, Joaquin, and Patricia will be retired from the list following their actions in the 2015 Season. Storm names get recycled every six years and so except a name or two in that list turns bad, that's where that name will be retired and replaced with a new name.
First off, Tropical Storm Erika. We all know that this name is going to get retired. Called that shit, by the way. Erika, even though it's a weak tropical storm, brought heavy rain to the island nation of Dominica. Bringing heavy rain and torrential flooding to the nation, kill at least 30 people and cause almost $500 million in damages. The storm died out as it about to head towards Florida. The name will be retired, making Erika the second Tropical Storm to get its name retired, following Tropical Storm Allison back in 2001. The name "E" name in the 2021 list will be...you gotta be kidding me? "Elsa."
So "Frozen" fever will be taking over the list for the 2021 Season, with the name "Ana" in the same list for the Atlantic. And "Olaf" in the Eastern Pacific. Pretty sure the fad will be dead by then. That is if Frozen 2 comes out in theaters. God, I want to bang my head to the wall so much.
Next on the list is "Joaquin." The name was supposed to be used for the first time in 2009, but because of a below average season during that time, the name now has to be used in 2015. And the only time to be used because the storm has a lot of things to list to get the name retired. The storm slammed the island nation of The Bahamas for several days, creating that much damage to the island of paradise. Killing at least one person in the Bahamas. Add another 33 to the list when the storm is responsible for the sinking of the El Faro ship. Add an additional more if you count the South Carolina flooding when its moisture ravaged the Palmetto State, even though the storm missed the Atlantic coast as what forecasters was supposed to hit there. The name "Joaquin" will be retired from the list. Making this the 80th overall name to get its name off the list. The new name to replace Joaquin will be "Julian." Yep, that's right ladies and gentlemen, your's truly will be on the list in 2021...yeah, not my proudest achievement ever to date.
And finally, who could've forget Hurricane Patricia back in October? The strongest storm ever recorded in the Western Hemisphere got it's name retired. Which is quite surprising because I thought even though Patricia is the strongest storm in the planet, it caused little damage and a few fatalities in the western coast of Mexico, But you add that and it's remnants in already soaked Texas and Louisiana, it hit that mark. The name "Patricia" will be retired and will be replaced with "Pamela" in the 2021 Season.
So tell me what you think about this? Do you agree with this? What name(s) will be replaced next? Tell me what you think in the comments below.
