    My Way News - Hurricane seasons ends, one of calmest since 1990s

    The 2009 Atlantic season officially ends Tuesday. This year produced just nine named storms, including three hurricanes. Only two tropical storms - Claudette in August and Ida in November - made landfall in the U.S. Those tropical storms brought heavy rain and some flooding but caused little destruction.

    This was the quietest hurricane season since 2006, when none of the nine storms hit the U.S. coast. The calmest season before that was in 1997, which had just seven storms.

    There were fewer storms because of El Nino in the Pacific.

    In other words because the Pacific Ocean was so warm....
