Is your name on the new hurricane list?

Damage from Hurricane Maria in San Juan Puerto Rico

The names are retired if the storms were so severe that their future use would be insensitive.

Hurricane season is around the corner, with forecasters predicting 3-5 major hurricanes for the US this year.

The names Harvey, Irma, Maria and Nate have officially been retired from use as storm names in the future due to the destruction those named storms caused during the 2017 Atlantic Hurricane season.

The first named storm of the 2018 Atlantic Hurricane season will be Alberto.

There have been 86 names retired from the Atlantic basin since storms began receiving names in 1953.

All three names - along with Nate - were retired and replaced with Harold, Idalia, Margot and Nigel.

Damaged houses are shown in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, Monday, Sept. 11, 2017, in the Florida Keys.

The World Meteorological Organization is responsible for coming up with the list of storm names. Irma caused 44 deaths and 85 indirect deaths in the Caribbean and Florida.

It struck the Caribbean island of Dominica at Category 5 intensity and caused catastrophic damage.

Good riddance, Harvey, Irma, Maria and Nate.

Maria quickly intensified into a hurricane just 24 hours after it became a tropical storm and intensified into a category 5 hurricane. Maria caused 31 direct deaths with 34 missing in Dominica, and two direct deaths in Guadeloupe.

Hurricanes season runs from June 1 to November 30. An additional nine people were missing in the region.

22News Storm Team Meteorologist Adam Strzempko is working for you with a look at the storm names for this upcoming season. Dennis, Katrina, Rita, Stan and Wilma were removed from the rotating list that year.
