    Harvey, Irma, Maria, and Nate have officially been retired.

    I’m surprised that Nate was retired. Another interesting thing is that the WMO went with a French name to replace Maria rather than a Spanish sounding name, such as Miranda.

    I still disagree that Nate's death or damage toll was enough to warrant retirement, even in Central America, but eh, retirement or lack thereof of marginal storms has been arbitrary for decades. I like Margot and Nigel as replacements though. Harold was expected, and honestly they're running out of 'I' names so fast they just have to take what's left.
