SOUTH PADRE ISLAND, TX (NBC) - Some of the country's leading experts on hurricanes are meeting on South Padre Island this week.

Research scientists and weather experts gathered together at the National Tropical Weather Conference on South Padre Island to speak about hurricane predictions.

Something that is abnormal from previous seasons seems to be the presence of El Nino this season.

But even if these predictions are perfect, there's no telling where these storms could be. And it only takes one storm to cause severe damage.

But that does not tell the whole story, because the important number is one that is not included in their calculations: How many storms will actually make landfall this year?

Still, the bottom line is that these experts say there will not be lot of hurricanes this year.

Weather forecasters say you should still be prepared and keep yourself safe, even if it's just a category one.
