How did Ana get that name so late in the year? This is the one that went close to Hawaii and then went NE back toward Canada. :) :?:

It started in the central Pacific (started as Tropical Depression Two-C) vs the eastern Pacific or western Pacific. So they used the names from that list and began with the A name.

The name list is here:
List 4
Ana (AH - nah)
Ela (EH-lah)
Halola (hah-LOH-lah)
Iune (ee-OO-neh)
Kilo (KEE-lo)
Loke (LOH-keh)
Malia (mah-LEE-ah)
Niala (nee-AH-la)
Oho (OH-hoh)
Pali (PAH-lee)
Ulika (oo-LEE-kah)
Walaka (wah-LAH-kah)
