2129 Atlantic hurricane season
Hurricane Iris, also known as the Great New York City hurricane or Hypercane Iris was the most destructive hurricane ever on the Atlantic Basin. Part of the 2129 season, It struck NYC as a Category 4 storm.
6,455 people died unfortunately. 32 from Bermuda, 6,450 from New England, and 5 from Canada.
Very rare and unusual, this was a quickly strengthening hurricane. It strengthened to a Category 5 near the middle of the Atlantic and stayed as this for many days.
This hurricane formed a tad after the Cape Verde Islands, producing little rain. In about a day, it strengthened to a tropical storm. The NHC named it Iris. The NHC Also predicted to go out North-east. Later on, it quickly intensified to a Category 3, then 4. Unusually, it strengthened to a C5. The NHC predicted to go towards Bermuda as a C4. However, it went North-west. It passed by Bermuda as a Category 5 hurricane, winds of an absurdly-high 190 mph. It later weaked to a 180mph storm. The NHC advised New England to evacuate, as this hurricane was peculiar and moving to the Northwest, and, it did. It weaked as it scraped the land, later making landfall in New York, NJ, and New England as a Category 4 storm. It killed 6,455 people, and caused $113 billion dollars of damage. It moved on to Canada, where it was a C2 hurricane causing $500 million dollars. It dissipated near the Great Lakes. It is now named the Great Hurricane of New York, or the 2129 New England hurricane (as there was a previous hurricane)
