Tropical cyclones don't get named until they reach tropical-storm status. This one's in the Pacific and uses a different set of names anyway, and if it develops further it will become Tropical Storm Polo.

Can't blame Trump for not being prepared. He had his Sharpie ready to write more in.

common sense is an oxymoron: Tropical cyclones don't get named until they reach tropical-storm status. This one's in the Pacific and uses a different set of names anyway, and if it develops further it will become Tropical Storm Polo.

Don't worry. There are enough letters left in the Greek alphabet that running out of them won't be an issue for at least another 2 weeks.

Also, I've never been down with the naming thing. It's a pointless layer of complexity. Just number and date them.
