Four hurricane names retired following 2017 devastation

So, if you see a name that you think you've heard before, you probably have. The organization says it retires names for hurricanes when "a storm is so deadly or costly that the future use of its name on a different storm would be inappropriate for reasons of sensitivity".
The World Meteorological Organization's Hurricane Committee, meeting in Martinique, France, April 9-13 to review the devastating 2017 Atlantic hurricane season and to discuss regional coordination and operational planning for the 2018 season, has retired the names Harvey, Irma, Maria, and Nate from its list of rotating names. They will be replaced by Harold, Idalia, Margot and Nigel. Those names will first appear in the 2023 list of storm names.
On Thursday, a committee of the World Meteorological Organization made a decision to replace those names with Harold, Idalia, Margot and Nigel when the list is recycled in 2023.
The 2005 season has the most retired names at five.
The agency noted that 2017 Atlantic season was both extremely active and one of the most destructive on record.
The 2017 hurricane season featured three category 4 hurricanes making landfall, including Harvey, Irma and Maria. Harvey is the second costliest hurricane in US history (after inflation), behind only Katrina in 2005.
Rossi says Marquez is too risky Pole sitter Jack Miller finished fourth, behind victor Cal Crutchlow, at a damp and chaotic Argentine MotoGP race. Crutchlow took advantage to record Honda's 750th Grand Prix success.
The flooding from Hurricane Harvey was nothing short of catastrophic in southeastern Texas and southwestern Louisiana because the large storm stalled for days in late August. Irma came ashore in southwest Florida as a Category 4 hurricane.
Irma - a Category 5 storm, the strongest designation, wrecked havoc on Caribbean islands; Barbuda was nearly completely destroyed. Irma made landfall as a category 4 hurricane in the Florida Keys on September 10 and struck southwestern Florida as a category 3 the same day. It caused 44 direct deaths as a result of wind, rain and heavy surf. In the USA, seven deaths as a result of were reported, and 85 indirect deaths as a result of debris.
That news earned some ominous and sensational headlines online, but what will ultimately happen on land remains a mystery whether there are many storms or just a few. The death toll from Maria in Puerto Rico is 65, but because the island still lacks power, the number of indirect deaths is hard to calculate. It also inflicted serious damage on some of the other islands of the northeastern Caribbean Sea.
Hurricane Nate was a tropical storm that strengthened to category 1 hurricane status.
Hurricane Nate killed 45 people in Central America.
