Study: Hurricanes with female names more deadly
Some hurricanes can be deadlier than others, but it has nothing to do with how strong they are or where they’re at.
A new study says hurricanes with female names are more deadly than those with male names.
It turns out people don’t take the female hurricanes as seriously, so they’re less likely to take precautions.
Researchers say having a female hurricane can have triple the death toll because of that.
Only female names were used when hurricanes first started being named in 1950.
Male names were not used until 1979.
