    Done, probably one of us might even update the list with landfalls and whether they were TS or Hurricanes too :wink:

    Beryl is out there now, doesn't look like it will cause much trouble. (Unless you're diving off N Carolina.)

    So the north pacific has been more active than the Atlantic side this year, with 3 named hurricanes.

    I believe the words you missed out there are "so far", its still pretty early in both seasons to really do anything but a quick count of storms - lets tally at the end of the season/year :wink:

    Hey, thanks for setting this up! I did it the past few years but this year am 'internet challenged' while going through a transition in living quarters. Feel free to post updates.. Simon seems to be on more and I'm getting better arrangements made to be online at least every other day to catch up with things.:coffee:

    BTW, the news paper here has published something stating that the hurricane season may just starting to get underway meaning those names will be red or blue soon!

    At least you dont have to worry about boarding up the house and worrying about how rowdy the neighbors are around you without power - now you can just (hopefully) get some gas and get the hell out of there with all your essential stuff in tow! :wink: I like the sound of that. We have a buffer in Orlando - its called the east and west coasts of Florida, so yet again i will get ready for lack of power and such, with a very slim likelihood that anything more than that will happen here.
