Who came up with the idea to name hurricanes?
American forecasters began naming hurricanes in the Atlantic Ocean when they occurred in 1953. They got the idea from the U.S. military. They named a storm "Betsy" and then they realized it was easier to say then saying " the big storm at 32.3 degrees North and 74 degrees West" on the radio. After that they decided to name hurricanes and now the World Meteorological Organization has the right to name Hurricanes.
