Useless Fact Of The Week

Hurricanes: The term "hurricane" comes from the Taino Native American word, "hurucane", which translates to evil spirit of the wind. 

The first person to give hurricanes names was an Australian weather forecaster named Clement Wragge in the early 1900s.

The first US hurricane was (unoffically) named George in 1947.
