Hurricane Danielle

"First major storm of the season." Currently Category 3. Not expected to hit the US, though may hit Bermuda. My name is used every six years, so the last time it was used was 2004. Before that, 1998 & 1992.

Here's how the hurricane names work (there are separate Atlantic and Pacific lists) ~

"There are six lists that continue to rotate. The lists only change when there is a hurricane that is so devastating, the name is retired and another hurricane name replaces it. Thus, the 2010 hurricane name list is the same as the 2004 hurricane name list, although four hurricane names were retired after the devastating 2004 hurricane season: on the 2010 list, Charley was replaced by Colin, Frances was replaced by Fiona, Ivan was replaced by Igor, and Jeanne was replaced by Julia."
