The last ones name was Katrina. To find out the wrest of your questions look on the "NOAA" web site. It will tell you everything you want to know. I believe the most storms in one season was 19 named storms, but not all were hurricanes. Nitro... thanks for the reply. What I meant was not the most recent hurricane (Katrina) but the name of the highest numbered hurricane in a season - which according to this snippet from was "Wilma." ---------------- ---------------- ... Just a week into September -- historically the most active month for tropical activity -- the 2005 Atlantic hurricane season has seen 15 named storms, six of which reached hurricane strength with winds of at least 74 mph. Four of those became major hurricanes, with sustained winds of at least 111 mph. According to the National Hurricane Center, the historical averages for a hurricane season are 10 named storms, six hurricanes and two major hurricanes. Those numbers have been met or exceeded this season, which doesn't end until November 30. The largest number of named storms ever recorded was 21, in 1933, a record that will be broken if just seven more storms develop in the next 12 weeks. And if that happens, the hurricane center will run out of names for the first time since it adopted the system of assigning names to storms in 1953. The letters Q, U, X, Y and Z aren't used, because few names begin with those letters; the 21st and last name on this year's hurricane list is Wilma. After that, Greek letters will be used to designate storms, beginning with alpha. The most hurricanes recorded in the Atlantic is 12, in 1969, according to the hurricane center, and the largest number of major hurricanes is eight, in 1950. ###
