If you're Italian and read this...


Donna means woman while troia means whore,bitch...the worst kind of woman that would sell her pussy for 5 dollars.
That's why her nickname has never been translated here.

Hundreds of years ago, hurricanes were named after saints, according to NOAA. The hurricane that struck Puerto Rico in 1825 was named Santa Ana, for example.

By the end of the 19th century, an Australian forecaster named Clement Wragge pioneered the practice of naming storms after the Greek alphabet. He then began applying women's names to tropical storms before the end of the 19th century.

NOAA said a group of American soldiers in 1944 named a series of tropical storms in Saipan after their wives.

year later, according to NOAA, the armed services adopted the practice of naming typhoons in the western Pacific after women.

By 1953, the military scrapped its storm-naming method, which worked off a phonetic alphabet, and started attributing female names to storms, according to NOAA.

Male names have only been included on the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) storm lists since 1979.

meteorologists alternate male and female names for storms and rotate them out by using six lists that run through the year 2022.

The lists are reused unless one [storm name] is retired and is substituted with a new name that is selected by the World Meteorological Organization.
