I’m confused about the tropical storm names this season. We had Alberto, then Hurricane Bud. Now we have Tropical Storm Beryl. Where did Bud fit in? I thought we went straight through the alphabet?!

ANSWER:

Different oceans: in 2012, the Atlantic names begin with a masculine name (Alberto), then Beryl; the Eastern Pacific names begin with a feminine name (Aletta), and then Bud.
