The 2017 hurricane season was a dicey one. Somehow, South Louisiana was able to dodge a few bullets. Our neighbors to the West and East weren't so lucky. Looking ahead to next year's hurricane season, NOAA has just released the 2018 hurricane names list.

2017's record-breaking Atlantic hurricane season may go down as the costliest season in history, with some of the most intense storms ever recorded.

Hopefully, things will quiet down next season.

Here is the list of hurricane names for 2018. Is your name on the list?
