Om 2005 Atlantic hurricane season
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The 2005 Atlantic hurricane season was the most active Atlantic hurricane season in recorded history, repeatedly shattering numerous records. The impact of the season was widespread and ruinous with an estimated 3, 913 deaths and record damage of about $159.2 billion. Of the storms that made landfall, five of the season's seven major hurricanes- Dennis, Emily, Katrina, Rita, and Wilma-were responsible for most of the destruction. The Mexican states of Quintana Roo and Yucatan and the U.S. states of Florida and Louisiana were each struck twice by major hurricanes; Cuba, the Bahamas, Haiti, Mississippi, Texas, and Tamaulipas were each struck once and in each case brushed by at least one more. The most catastrophic effects of the season were felt on the United States' Gulf Coast, where a 30 ft (10 m) storm surge from Hurricane Katrina caused devastating flooding that inundated New Orleans, Louisiana and destroyed most structures on the Mississippi coastline; and in Guatemala, where Hurricane Stan combined with an extratropical system to cause deadly mudslides.
