Hurricane Henry was the second strongest storm of the 2061 Atlantic hurricane season, and the strongest to impact Newfoundland, leading to catastrophic and devastating damage, and hundreds of lives were lost due to people underestimating the storm's power.

Meterological History

On July 28th 2061, an area of interest was marked by the NHC for a possible chance of developing into a tropical depression, a tropical storm, or a hurricane.

On August 1st, the area was announced to have developed into Tropical Depression Nine, later, it was upgraded to a tropical storm and given the name "Henry".

Like with Douglas, the system started to rapidly intensity, unusually hitting Newfoundland as a Category 5 hurricane, while not as intense as Douglas, it was last noted as a tropical depression near the North Pole.



The government ordered evacuations for the area's in a hurricane and/or tropical storm warning, thinking it wasn't going to be that bad, people didn't listen and say, which the government says was a "bad idea".



The damage in Newfoundland was devastating, government officials calculated the damage toll to be around $30 billion, shocked at this, the government launched a successful relief effort. It was estimated around 1,000 citizens died in the storm directly, 100 died indirectly, and that around 300 people were missing.


Due to the high damage and death toll, it was announced in April 2062 that the name "Henry" will be retired and replaced with "Henriette" for the 2067 season.
