Way behind the times! Its been years since masculine names were added. Have you not heard about Hurricane Harvey?

I'm glad you put 1 sentence in your presentation about male names being used starting in 1979 because we already have had 2 male named hurricanes this past week. I really didn't see any point to this presentation. It doesn't contain any information I want or need to know.

Diane Ray, The article was very specific....it states "In 1979 World Meteorological Organisation and National Meteorological Service of the USA included males names into the list."

Unbalanced. Hurricanes have had male names for years. Hurricane Andrew wiped out southern FL in 1992 and Ike got us a new roof in 2008.

Thank you for the explanation. I am glad we have both female and male names. I teased the Harvey and Maria in my family.
