The name YHWH is associated with mercy whereas the name Elokim is associated with justice (Refer to Rashi on Devarim 3:24 quoting the Sifrei here).

I noticed that the name of YHWH is used exclusively in the story of destroying Sodom, no name of Elohim (Genesis.19.1-20).

Why the holy name of mercy is used exclusively in this devastating story?
