To prepare for the potential impact of the previously Category 4 Hurricane, widespread evacuations are taking place.

If the former category 4 hurricane reaches land, it may join the devastating hurricanes Ian from 2022 and Irma from 2017 in the unfortunate “I” category.

Hurricane name lists are used for six years, but if a storm is extremely deadly or costly like a Category 4 hurricane, the World Metrological Organization will retire its name to avoid any insensitivity in the future, as stated by the National Hurricane Center.

To name a few Category 4 hurricanes that start with the letter I, we have the Category 4 hurricane, Ian, the Category 4 hurricane, Ida, the Category 4 hurricane, Iota, Category 4 hurricane, Irma.
