The National Hurricane Center (NHC) has developed a list of names for tropical systems. This list was created in 1953. There are only six lists recycled every six years.
If the NHC runs out of names, it will go to the Greek alphabet to finish out the season.
If a storm is extremely destructive, the name will be retired and a new name will be added to the list.
