I love my contry's media.
They called a storm with 90 km wind ''Hurricane Gabi''
Well, it did some damage and killed 6 people , and put other 12 in hospital, but stil.
Names are chosen 5 years in advance from a region known name to make it easy for people to get the hurricane message. When a hurricane does a lot of damange, the name is taken away from the list.
That way, Katrina, Harvey and Irma won't ever come back as hurricanes, as they are now names of historical events.
For the nina/el nino thing, the events are made more powerful because of climate change, that's why this hurricane season is so fucked up...
