I remember the last three, so this was fairly easy. You can add Juan (2003) as well, I'll never forget that one!

Excellent idea for a teaser, but I'm afraid that the title and dates gave it away...

So easy 'cause I grew up in West Palm Beach and lived thru the 1st 4 on the list. Andrew was wicked Looked like an atomic bomb hit Homestead. Then I moved to tornado alley! Go figure!

Easy but fun just the same. Sure glad we don't have hurricanes where I live. However, I did grow up with Tornados and the damage they do is also amazing.

I also knew they were alantic hurricanes but did not know about the retirement part. So I have to say it was hard

yeah i guessed they were hurricanes (well actually tropical cyclones 'coz that's all i've ever really heard about living in Australia), but i had no idea that names got used more than once...

I never heard of these but, did a google search on each of them. Made me a bit sad to read about them but, this was a great piece of tivia. Keep them coming.

Coulda added Katrina...I don't know who reeked mor havoc Katrina, or Andrew? I'm just a few years too young to know about some of the other first hand. A few HA YEAH RIGHT who am I trying to kid? I think 11 years is more than a few. Despite being easy it was a good teaser with the extra added info about the retirement of the names.
