I was gone and didn't get around to doing this one. One little teeny correction though. Some Pacific hurricanes are called hurricanes (like in Mexico and Hawaii). I believe it is the southern hemisphere ones that are called typhoons.

BTW, all I would have gotten on this one are #s 1, 4, and maybe 8 if I had thought it out.
