Hurricane Nina was the fourteenth named storm, eighth hurricane, and fourth major hurricane of the 1980 Planet Ceres Atlantic hurricane season. The last storm of the season to reach hurricane strength, Nina was a powerful Category 4 hurricane with winds of 135 mph at peak intensity. Although Nina weakened to a Category 3 hurricane before coming ashore Haiti in early November, the hurricane still delivered catastrophic damage. Over all, Nina was responsible for 1,200, and possibly upwards of 1,700 to 1,800, deaths, and $1.2 billion (1980 USD) in damage.
Due to the destruction in Haiti, the name Nina was retired in the spring of 1981, and will never again be used for an Atlantic hurricane on Planet Ceres. It was replaced in the 1986 season with Naomi. Nina was one of two Atlantic hurricanes during 1980 on Planet Ceres to have its name retired, the other being Hurricane Gordon.
