ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — Tropical activity has picked up for the 2021 Atlantic hurricane season in the past week. Recently, there were three active storms in the Atlantic Basin at one time — Fred, Grace, and Henri.
More tropical cyclones will develop as we enter the peak of hurricane season. After Henri, what is the next name on the list for the 2021 Atlantic hurricane season?
The letter “I” comes after “H”, so we know the next tropical storm that develops will have an “I” name.
The answer is (D) Ida. However, the other answer choices are “I” names that will be used in lists for future Atlantic hurricane seasons.
Overall, 12 “I” names have been retired since the United States began naming tropical storms and hurricanes back in the 1950s.
