Orkaancentrum raakt door zijn stormnamen heen

November 1, 2021 - Tropical Storm Wanda is the 21st storm of 2021, making this the Atlantic’s third-most active year on record, using all the names on the official storm list. This also occurred last year when a record 30 names were used and in 2005 when 28 were named.

In prior years, when all the names on the official storm list were used, forecasters turned to the Greek Alphabet. However, starting in 2021, a supplemental list of names beginning with Adria will be used if forecasters need them, Bloomberg said.
