Minor Typos in News Report for Octarine Hurricanes

We have just received news that a violent Octarine Hurricane is rampaging through our empire. 20% of our Cash Factory production has been effected. The hurricaine is expected to last for 6 weeks and was created by [redacted].

  1. Shouldn’t it be affected?
  2. There is an extra i in the bolded hurricane.

past tense: effected ; past participle: effected

  1. cause (something) to happen; bring about.
    I am thinking they meant to use the word effected as you can see by the definition.

and hurricaine is indeed misspelled

Differences in usage can be so minor. I can often see it either way being correct, so I use this reference as a guide:

“Affected” means “impacted, created an effect on, changed in a certain way.”
