One reader is curious as to why all hurricanes are named after women. What do you think?

Why are hurricanes, which cause such massive destruction and loss of life, mainly given female names?

How about some more contemporary males names, such as Bush, Trump, Blair, etc?

Do you agree with Mike? Should we have hurricanes named after men too? Let us know in the comments below or write to us at edpletters@archant.co.uk
