^erm, or pull an Allen. Allen track
1980 Allen odd note: it was in the same storm name rotation as Hurricanes Bonnie, Charley, Earl, Frances, Georges, Ivan, Jeanne and Karl.
Allen's (Cat 5) name was retired and replace by ... Andrew (Cat 5). Whose name was retired in 1992 and replaced by Alex.
Bonnie has never been a major hurricane. But did hit Texas in 1986.
Charley ought to be retired after this year.
Earl's still around.
Frances was sched for retirement before this season.
Georges was retired in 1998 (Cat 5) and replaced by Gaston, who may or may not be retired.
Ivan's played nice till now.
Jeanne (who I suspect we'll see again this week) is around.
Mitch was in that rotation and retired in 1998 (Cat 5)
This rotation was used for the first time in 1980.
