You heard it here, folks. As of this writing, Wilfred has just formed, which means for the first time since 2005, the Atlantic hurricane season has finally used up all of its name, forcing them to use Greek names afterwards.

Wouldn't exactly say that. Although this season could have more storms named. The storms this year haven't been as intense as the storms back in 2005. Heck, July in 2005 had two major hurricanes which this year, we haven't had too many of thankfully.

Well, we're now to Zeta, which is the last named storm of the 2005 season. In 2005, it was a named storm just before the first of the year (2006).

We officially have surpassed 2005's record for the most named storms with the formation of Subtropical Storm Theta in the open Atlantic.

While we have had a record number of named storms, the number of hurricanes and major hurricanes falls short of 2005's records. 2020 has seen 12 hurricanes and 5 major hurricanes, compared to 2005s 15 hurricanes and 7 majors. Still, this has been an impactful and destructive year, with a record-setting 12 named storms making landfall in the continental United States, breaking the record of 9 set in 1916.
