The 2020 Atlantic hurricane season was a slightly below-average season, and the first season since the 1976 season that two subtropical cyclones formed and did not become fully tropical. The season officially began on June 1, and ended on November 30. These dates conventionally delimit the period of each year in which most tropical cyclones form in the north Atlantic.
The strongest, costliest, and deadliest storm in the 2020 season was Hurricane Hanna, a large and powerful Category 3 hurricane that was the first major hurricane to make landfall in North Carolina since Hurricane Fran in 1996. Overall, Hanna caused $9.2 billion in damages and 41 deaths.
Below is a list of names used for storms that formed in the north Atlantic during 2020. This list is the same list that was used in the 2014 season. The name Isaias was used for the first time in the 2020 season. The name Isaias replaced Ike after 2008, but was not used in 2014.
On March 25, 2021, at the 43rd session of the RA IV hurricane comitee, the name Hanna was retired due to the damage and deaths it caused in the Caribbean and United States. It was replaced by Hailey for the 2026 season.
