(PCM) The possible naming of a hurricane “Isis” has been deemed inappropriate by the U.N’s World Meteorological Organization due to the rise of the violent militant group the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria, otherwise known as ISIS.
The name “Isis” was reportedly already given to a storm that could have potentially hit the eastern North Pacific sometime in 2016. That particular storm has since been renamed “Ivette”. The list of names for hurricanes rotates every six years, however it is not uncommon for names to be removed from the list.
If a storm is particularly damaging and destructive it’s name is then “retired” from the list, as to not associate memories for the victims that were in its’ path.
