With Hurricane Season starting in a few days, I thought I'd post a list of the names that will be used this year. Alex Bonnie Colin Danielle Earl Fiona Gaston Hermine Ian Julia Karl Lisa Matthew Nicole Otto Paula Richard Shary Tobias Virginie Walter Alex, of course, was already used as a name, since a hurricane formed after they had put the books away during the 2015 season. (See this.) Also, even though Hurricane Season starts on June 1st, there is a storm brewing in the Atlantic now, that could be Bonnie. But not in a good way.
