2014 Hypothetical Hurricane Season Animation

(Original post by Sena5)
NEWS FLASH
2014 Atlantic hurricane season, was hyper-active, with 26 named storms forming, nearing 2005. 15 were hurricanes, 7 were major, and there were 2 depressions. The name Arthur were changed, to Andrio. Andrio had a erratic track, going up the Carolina coast, looping and intensifying into a Category 4, and soon going out to the Atlantic, causing slight damage and costs of $15000. Bertha intensified and became a hurricane, striking Pensacola with winds of 100-115 mph winds (though it was 100 in the postseason records). Hurricane Cristobal, a Category 4 also, struck Mexico powerfully causing damages up to 11.3bil. Tropical Storm Dolly again hit Texas this time as a Tropical Storm. Damages were up to 250mil. Hurricane Edouard was the first Category 5 of the season, avoiding land completely until it's extratropical demise near Europe. Fay never intensified past 40 mph winds, dying before landfall near Venice, Louisiana, but still causing heavy rain. Grevis intensified into a Category 1 hurricane, never making landfall within it's short life. The big storm of the season, Hurricane Hanna, struck the Yucatan Peninsula (Mexico), then made a very wide almost U-turn towards Louisiana, doing what Fay didn't do. Hanna was a Category 5 during both landfalls. It hit Mexico with winds of 160 mph, and soon Camron, Louisiana with winds of 180 mph.

Madagascar, as a country very well known for its regular, destructive cyclones, sends its condolences to the US and Mexico for this particularly destructive storm season. Are Mexico and the US able to give some information as to the level of damage incurred and any casualties?

If Madagascar could help it might be worthy to explain the level of damage and casualties.
Anyways, thanks for your condolences:yep:

Whilst Madagascar appreciates that the US is currently facing a disaster situation and has every sympathy, we would respectfully point out that as a developed country with huge wealth, we find it a little disrespectful that the US is asking for help from Madagascar, a developing country with massive poverty. We are still trying to repair damage from massive cyclones not just from this year but from several years ago that ripped through already very fragile infrastructure, whilst recovering from a period of huge political instability following our coup d'état in 2009 and only recently re-elected new president. We would respectfully suggest that our friends in Europe or Australasia are probably in a much more able position to provide aid than impoverished African countries. We find it surprising that the US only feels the need to explain the extent of the catastrophe if there is going to be money at the end of it? Madagascar would suggest that it is in the US's interests to explain fully the extent of the disaster at hand and the most pressing needs, as this way, other countries, who may well feel able to respond, may be better assisted to consider their response. Is the US making an official request for aid?

Thanks for the response. I couldn't come online due to internet connection problems. I understand Madagascar has its own issues. I meant we could help each other in either way, so both would benefit helping each other. Thanks anyways!

The DPRK welcomes this news, regarding it as divine retribution for the multitude of sins committed upon the human race by the USA.

Yet our glorious leader Kim Jong-un is not without mercy, and is willing to provide a share of our bountiful resources in alleviating human suffering caused by these hurricanes, on the condition that the USA adopts and isolationist foreign policy and commits to transitioning to a planned economy.

We await their response.
