Atlantic hurricane and tropical storm name lists repeat every six years, unless one is so destructive and/or deadly that a committee of the World Meteorological Organization votes to retire that name from future lists.

In 2018, Sara replaces 2012’s Sandy. Four names were retired from future use after the 2017 hurricane season.
