We’ve come to the end of the 2021 Atlantic hurricane season — and coincidentally exhausted the annual list of storm names.  With 21 named storms, including 7 hurricanes, 4 of them category 3 or above.  It’s been one of the busiest seasons since record-keeping began, and while South Florida was spared, Hurricane Ida ravaged coastal Louisiana and caused dangerous flooding in parts of the Northeast in late August and early September.
