Re: Hurricane Stuff


Here is one that is quite difficult:
There have been 5 named Hurricanes that have hit the United States (landfall) as a Major Hurricane, but their names were not retired. Name the five. A (useless) hint: Four of the names are no longer in use. There is probably only a couple of folks on the site that might come up with the correct answer - its a tough one.
Good Luck!

That's a tough question that would take some time to research...The first name that comes to mind is H. Bret in 1999, which hit very sparsely populated Kenedy County, TX as a 100-kt major hurricane. Usually such storms would have occurred in remote areas like central LA, S. TX, the NC Outer Banks, and maybe the FL Big Bend areas since there is little population there.
