The names to watch this hurricane season

The names to watch this hurricane season

Insurers and reinsurers already know the names of their potential enemies this North Atlantic hurricane season.

Humberto is certainly an impressive name for a storm, while Nestor has a classical quality to it.

It would not be beyond the realms of the imagination for Hurricane Pablo to sweep its way across the Atlantic, or perhaps Olga would be suitable to follow the Russian trend that was provided by Hurricane Ivan.

Barry, however, would without a doubt be a pretty unimpressive name for a hurricane, a smattering of light rain would perhaps be more appropriate.

However whether it is Jerry, Lorenzo, Melissa, Dorian, Erin or Karen, it is likely the industry is going to hear a lot from some of the following names over the next few months.
