Disclaimer: This season is not based of models of real 1979 Storms. All of these storms are based of my own thought but there is relation in real storms and Force Thirteen's WMHB seasons, but not exact tracks, categories, wind speeds, and pressure.

The 1979 Atlantic Hurricane Season is the first year to use both male and female names as storm names. It officially began on June 1. It is an extremely active season, almost nearing Greek names. The two's very destructive storms - Juan and Mindy, causes widespread damages. It is also active since 1975.

Hurricane Ana causes huge swells across the Gulf, causing minimal damage. Aside from Juan and Mindy, Bob and Gloria also causes huge damage, particularly in Yucatan and Gulf Coast. Hurricane Rose causes flooding in some areas, although it remained offshore. David, Frederic, Larry, Sam, Teresa and Victor causes minimal to moderate damage.

Juan, is very costly hurricane, causing $4.75 Billion dollars, but Mindy is the worst, which causes $8.3 Billion dollars, It displaces many people, so these names are mostly retired, It also causes a lot of casualties, mostly died from drowning and landslides.
